  • It can be a virus as well, but you never want to guess when it comes to pain. Take him to his doctor.

  • ER...don't assume anything. This happend to my dh a few years ago..odd pain in his lower ab, vomitting, he was feeling dizzy, i took him into the ER and by the time we got there his testicles were swelling...some how one got twisted. He had to have emergency surgery. The doctor said if we had waited any longer he wouldnt have been able to save his testicle. You never know what it could be so you better go..especially if you child is experiencing pain
