possibility: 'abdominal migraine'? my godson gets this, provoked by eating choc but i think it only lasts a day or two at a time? he started just before he turned 4, and doesn't get it if he avoids choc now he's 6

Could be mesenteric adenitis.

There are glands in teh tummy - the same as there are in the neck. They swell in the same way as glands in teh neck to in response to infection...and in some people/children they can cause acute and v v severe pain. I think that some children have ended up on the operating table having apendix removed only to find that it sn't appendicitis.

My DTDs - especially DTD1 get this. It is usually associated with having a codl (or in teh run up to having a cold) and to a lesser extent by stress. If he is saying he feels hot have you been able to ascetain whether he does have a fever? It usually affects my DTDs at night or after eating.

Ibuprofen is hte best thing to treat it - if it is this.
