 (dont worry we already got an dr appt set up for this afternoon).

Just wondering what this could possible be. First started saturday. We were at the park playing all of sudden he come up to me and he looks ghost white and saying his stomach hurt. Well i made him sit down drink some water and rest think he just over heated. He was fine a little while later. It happened again yesterday, This time at the libary. He was just standing there with me waiting to check out and he got pale again and said his stomach hurt. I made him sit down for a bit. We left got home I made him eat a snack and Drink some water. He was fine about 20 mins later. I'm thinking maybe low blood sugar since Diabties run in the family, but both time he had ate a good meal before hand. So I a bit confused. Anyone deal with this and know what it could be caused from?


Update: Post this in the comment, but will post here as well. 
Thank all. He a has a been pooping but still has some blockage. I never heard of this but So possible. so move veggies, fiber, and Fruit for a few day to see if he can get it to pass.

I'm glad you're taking him to the doc. 

I'm no expert, but it sounds like low blood sugar, especially since he felt better after a snack.

Only thing I could think is when was the last time he pooped?

My son always lose some color and his stomach starts hurting if he's backed up

Could be hypoglycemic, basically abbug fancy name for low blood sugar. My mom is like that, sometimes it doesn't matter if she eats a good meal, if it doesn't have enough sugar content it still happens.

If it is diabetes and he had just eaten he could be " insulin dumping" but I don't know how common that is in children. Hope the Dr is able to give you some answers
