Ds has come home from school with severe tummy pains around belly button area and both sides,temp is 39.4 hes had a very slight cold in last few days.
Is it likely to be just a bug or does it warrant a visit to the Dr?
Im always worried when he has a high temp

My DD (6yo) had this a few weeks back - just treated it with Calpol and a bit of TLC.

It isn't like the doctor is going to be able to prescribe anything .... just keep an eye on the temp

I'd get him checked out. Those symptoms could be appendicitis.
