My son hasn't had much of an appetite all day when he got home from school he complained of a lil gas. He has still not wanted to eat anything so im just keeping him hydrated. No vomit no fever acting fine. As of rightnow hes enjoying the sound his stomach makes when he shakes his hips bcuz its full of fluids lol. Im just a bit concerned as to what this could be or going on. Should i worry? Call his dr? Any positive advice is much appreciated. Thank u in advance :)

 It may be a bug, but it might just be gas. I would give him a probiotic. If he's not getting rid of more liquids than normal (throwing up or diarrhea) than I wouldnt even worry about pushing extra fluids.

I have no idea!  He may just have an upset tummy or gas, or even constipation.  Has he had a bowel movement?

My son did this one day all day long. Then at 9pm that night, he vomitted. It was a stomach virus, but for some reason, he did not get sick until that night. He hardly ate anything all day and kept saying his stomach hurt.

I agree.  If he doesn't feel ill, other than gassy, don't worry.

I think it's to early to tell. Could just be gas. Hope he feels better soon
