I have a son who I cannot figure out if he is sick or just does not want to go to school. We have spent countless hours in the ER and doctors. They cannot find anything wrong.
I am concerned about his health, but I am also concerned that he just does not want to go. I am in close contact with the school, so please dont tell me to talk to them, it hasnt helped.

I agree it can be hard to tell. One time my son told me he didn't feel good and he didn't have a fever so I sent him to school. He had had blood tests taken at the children's hospital the day before. They called me and told me to rush him to the children's hospital ER right away, that he needed IVs. I felt so bad that I had to go get him from school to rush him to the ER that I forgot my purse at home. It took a long time at the hospital and I had all three of my kids with me and we were so hungry. The hospital gave us vouchers so we could eat in the cafeteria. My son only went to school for part of a year. We homeschooled. I had been in and out of the hospital several times that year and it was easier on my ex and his wife to watch them if my son went to school.
The school will call if he gets sick.

If he hates school, consider online schooling or homeschooling. In AZ kids can do online schooling for free and even get a free laptop. Go to school and hang out and see what it's like. I can understand kids not liking it. I loved school. I had horrible parents and it was a way for me to get away from them. However, it's normal for a kid to hate school. School should not be a battle. He could be sick.
You can change him being fat and spending too much time playing video games. Control the food that comes in the house and take him on outings that involve exercise. Try to get him involved in sports. Play golf and tennis with him. Take him to family swim at the Y. Go camping. Have him join Boy Scouts. Get the family eating healthy. Change the family's lifestyle. These are some ideas.
