My son is 7 and has a long list of health problems and the doctors keep adding more. For several months he has had really bad stomach pains the doctor said it was the nervous around his stomach that was causing the pain and that it is very common in children with autism.
Well the school keeps calling me to pick him up because his stomach pains are getting worse and he can't function in class. So I made another appointment for him to go back to his doctor and now we are being told along with the nerves around his stomach but he also has irritable bowel syndrome.
There are a few things we can do to try to help it but not much. So he still has to deal with the pain and there is still nothing we can do when he is in pain.
I feel so bad for him and everything seems to be so hard for him. I wish he could just catch a break for once.
