I don't know what is wrong with my 13 year old son. About a year ago he started complaining of severe stomach pain. We had just moved and had been eating alot of pizza. I thought it was just that. It continued a month later and he said he almost passed out a couple of times on the toilet from the pain after the pizza. Obviously I stopped giving him any pizza at all. His pain continued so I took him off gluten for a week (I have been gf for 6 years now due to Celiac disease), his stomach felt amazing, no pain! After about 9 days he ate gluten again and the severe pain and diarrhea was back. It messed his stomach up so bad he couldn't eat for 3 days! His pediatrician said she didn't even need to test him, just don't give the kid gluten again. Fast forward to this past summer, he was doing great gf and his stomach started hurting again. His bday is the end of June and I particularly remember him not wanting to eat at his favorite type of restaurant (Mexican), due to it killing his stomach the past couple of times. This went on and off the whole summer. He was still active and playing, and eating his normal foods. August came and his stomach just hurt him so bad, he just sat on the couch all day long. He is normally bouncing off the wall with energy. We homeschool and don't start till the day after labor day, so it being August wasn't a reason for any stress. His pediatrician did an x-ray and said his whole colon was full of stool! I didn't even know he was constipated! She put him on Senna and told him to drink alot of water. He did that religiously, including prune smoothies once to twice a day. He was moving his bowels every day, sometimes twice a day. His pain in his main lower stomach is still there. I take him back to the Dr and she said same thing, constipation. I said I want to be referred to a specialist. We went later that month and he was the oddest Dr I've ever met! Talked about how small he was and how he needs to gain some muscle to get a girl and fight with his brothers, he needs to eat nothing but egg whites, chicken with beans soup, and apples for an entire month! Told me if I ate gluten I wouldn't be so overweight. I wish I was making that up! BIZARRE Dr indeed! I'd rather both be in the hospital from gluten,but thanks specialist for telling me that! Anyway, he wanted to do a scope in 2 days, but I didn't want someone that I didn't feel comfortable with touching my son. I start him on the Makers Diet and 2 days he is feeling amazing. We are going shopping and he wants to go to eat a burger, said he was craving it sooo bad. The kid is so skinny we get happy when he wants to eat. Well it was a horrible painful night for him. He ate a bacon cheeseburger on a gf bun and french fries. He had severe diarrhea several times that night and the passing out pain again . He's been on the SCD diet for 10 days straight now. Says his stomach feels better, but is still hurting. 3 days ago we started miralax per his Dr . He is pooping a couple times a day, but his lower stomach is still hurting him alot. I took him back to his pediatrician today and she didn't even x-ray, just palpated his stomach and it wasn't sensitive to the touch. She said she thinks it's just constipation. He eats like a bird and barely drinks water, he will drink smoothies twice a day. And I just finished his SCD yogurt. Does this sound just like constipation to have that much pain in his lower stomach? I'm so scares he's gonna have a ruptured bowel or something. Sorry so long, thank you for reading.
