Just a guess, but could this be food poisoning? My h had something similar a while back with blood in faeces and terrible stomach pains.
Poor ds. Hope your doc is helpful and your ds feels better soon.

oh bollocks .. noone goes running to the doctor at every tummy pain / vomiting symptom .. I would always give it at least 3 days before even starting to worry

sounds like a food poisoning bug to me, too. Should get better with antibiotics. Good luck at the doctors.

God, nhs direct are either 'he's fine' or 'go to a & e' ime. I wouldn't have taken him before now either ks, bet it's just a bug and he'll be better in a couple of days but take him tomorrow to be reassured. Poor love, hope he's better soon.

Poor little chap. ds had a bug a while back which caused tummy cramps, he'd wake yelling in pain and it was worse at night, and was prescribed a small dose of muscle relaxant, Buscopan, I think.

I would say not a great idea to give milk if he's still puking

DS had a tummy bag a couple of weeks ago .. he got bad tummy cramps and puked but it was ONLY at night (as in 3am) lasted for 4 nights .. he was fine during the day

hope your DS feels better soon

No fat, no dairy and if you can starve him for 24 hours, so much the better. Flat coke is meant to be good, as is cooled boiled water with a teaspoon of sugar in it.

I went through a bout of being susceptible to tummy bugs and this always made me feel much better.

Agree with soupy

Flat coke is excellent, the phosphorus in it is good for the stomach i was told (by a doc). To make it go flat instantly drop a pinch of sugar in it. If you haven't got coke then flat lemonade will do, but it isn't as good.

I was also told by another gp that the water from boiled rice is good to drink when you have had the runs, but could never quite bring myself to give it to the kids, it looked so rotten!

think the calpol might be to just take the edge off the pain when the cramps start .. maybe?? which is why continuous dosing

I would be worried it was a bug too and I do agree with everyone--especially about leaving food for at least 24 hours after his last vomiting. Aciodophllis (can't spell either) can help to rebuild the bacteria in the intestinal tract, but I wouldn't try to add anything until you've given his system a complete rest (so hard to do). He still needs liquids to keep the kidneys going. I hope he feels better soon KS.
