im not be a paranoid over reactive mom right? update

Ds has been getting sick more often the usual. But he was feeling and doing much better two days before the onset of these symptoms, which are tender tummy, he takes his clothes off within two hours max of me putting them on. I would think this is normal three yr old behavior except it is sudden on set, he also won't wear pjs. Then he also has excessive tiredness, within two hours of waking he could go back down for a five hour nap. When I try and keep his pants on he tells me his abdomen hurts. So by taking him to the Dr I'm not being over reactive and/or paranoid right?

update: made an appt with the soonest available which is Friday.

update 4/13: today right after Ds got in trouble and was no longer in trouble. We were headed to the table so he could play on my moms nook. He had it taken today till that point. Right as we got to the table he bent over and said his tummy hurts again. Dr wanted to wait till Monday to do any tests, so Monday we are going to get them done. I will also be calling to update the Dr. Anyways today during Ds's nap I felt around his tummy and I found a pea size lump near/around where a ovary would be if he was a girl. I will add a pic in a minute, of the location.

Thank you, I wouldn't be so concerned had his tiredness not be a factor. It was today that hit me, he was so tired everytime I told him no on something I got the water works, and then when I told him it was nap time and time to lay down he started crying and telling me his pants hurt his tummy. And while watching tv/cleaning I started to think about the day and well that's usually when my brain puts prices together.

 IMO, you're NOT over reacting to see the dr.

Hope you find out what's going on.

This was dd this past week.
It was scary I was stressing she was barely eating and just sleeping and whining laying on the couch. (She is going to be 6 in less then a month) and so not like her to lay and relax it was not my child. Anyway turned out it was nothin she had a stomach bug one day and it just took her body that long to recoup.

Best if luck w your son. Trust your gut

He might have a tummy bug. I say take him in just for peace of mind if nothing else. Maybe there is something going around you didn't know about. =)
