    My 11 year old son has been suffering from stomach pain for the last few days but only told me last night. He said that it has him short for breath and the pain is quite sharp. He has woke this morning saying he feels sick and his tummy is still tender. I pressed on his tummy and it feels quite hard but he has been going to the toilet as normal. Can anyone offer any advice?

    Hi periods are normal and every woman goes through the experience. Some women get very heavy sore periods, some women get very light ones it really just depends on your own body. I had a bit of pain, kind of similar to a sore tummy, like when it hurts after eating something bad though it also goes away pretty quickly. Mine always came the day before my period started-so i always knew it was coming :) If the pain is bad you can take some painkillers or, the best cure I have found is a warm bath followed by cuddling up in bed with a hot water bottle at your tummy. The heat helps relax the muscles and eases the pain. Always be prepared as well and make sure you have enough sanitary pads. Also make sure you change them every 4 hours. For nighttime get some with 'wings' as these will hold the pad steady so it doesn't move about while you sleep. I hope this helps. If you need anything else ask someone close to you.

    Hi im 14 and I have massive boobs for my age, they give me back ache and cause lots more problems, but the thing is my mum and two older sisters have quite small boobs so it doesn't run in the family, I started my period when I was 7 so quite an early developer but surely they shouldn't be MASSIVE ( 38 DD) It makes me feel out of place...

    Hi- if your child also is very flexible (double jointed etc) it might be worth checking out the Hypermobility Assoc website as long term constipation is a symptom associated with the illness and many of the laxatives do not work - we had 5 days of 12 sachets of movicol and it did no good at all.

    hey i'm chloe and i have trouble going to the loo.I am on movocol and senna the same amount as you.I always get tummy ache just before i need the toilet, but i find it hard to go ! But my local doctor has never refered me to the hospital, just loaded me with medication over the years.

    Hi sue hope you get this message in reply to yours, sorry to ear bout your daughter, I took my son to the out of hours doctors a few months ago and demanded answers and told them I was sick of being fobbed off, the doc was lovely and said. My son defo does have ibs and he is not too young at all, they gave him movicol again but also put him on tablets for the tummy spasms which really helped him, few months on and he is now off the movicol and tablets, he still gets the odd tummy ache but usual he goes to the toilet and he is ok, I think he will always have this problem but fingers crossed hrs over the worst of it, I hope you get some answers soon and your daughter is ok, as a sufferer myself I know how awful it can be I can only say the older I got the better it got

    From the age of 7 my daughter was back and forth to the doctor for 4 years with tummy ache. We were just fobbed off and told don't worry, it could be tummy migraine, it could be anxiety, it could be constipation. She was in pain on a daily basis and at times she was doubled over in pain. We asked about tests, but were told they are not very pleasant for a child, so don't worry she'll probably grow out of it. After 4 miserable years we were offered a hospital appointment. Within 8 weeks she had blood tests and an endoscopy biopsy and she was diagnosed with Coeliac disease. She is now on a gluten free diet and a completely different child. No tummies aches means she is happy and carefree like any other child her age.

    Hi my son is 4, was diagnosed with throat infection yesterday. Last night and tonight he has woken very distressed saying his tummy hurts, it's below his belly button straight across his tummy. The dr felt all his tummy and was happy, this was my main reason for taking him to the drs. During the day he's not mentioned tummy hurting only these last two nights its woken him and he's really upset by it. Has been drinking lots of water and been going toilet with no issues. Any ideas it's worrying and upsetting?? Thanks

    My son is now 10 years old, since he was a baby i have always thought that he has had problems with his tummy/bowels. He would moan/cry after eating due to pain in his tummy, full of gas, always constipated (would hate having to pass a stool) and tummy would bloat up badly. After years of going to the GP they finally decided to give him a blood test, but that came back negative for CD. Symptoms persisted so went back to GP and they gave him a scan of the tummy, it showed he had 2 hernias that were trapping nerves. He was sent in to have these removed which improved his pain a bit, but he still gets tummy pains so am i wrong to still think that the problem is still there. He has a very good healthy diet, drinks lots of water, also the thing is family on both sides have been diagnosed with intolerances to lactose and gluten. Please can someone give me advice on where to go next as i feel my doctors are just fobbing me off and think im overreacting. I just want my son to be able to eat a meal with out having pain after it.

    Hi Sarah, you should definitely go back to the GP and ask for him to be referred to a gastroenterologist at your hospital. Just because the blood test was negative doesn't mean that he doesn't have CD - I should know - mine was negative but further tests (colonoscopy and gastroscopy) by the hospital have revealed that I'm both CD and lactose intolerant. He needs to have biopsies taken to make a firm diagnosis but given that he's not improving then you need to be firm with the GPs. From personal experience they tend to know very little about it as a disease and how it is actually diagnosed. I 'phoned my GP surgery to get the results of my gastroscopy to be told that I had "a touch of gastritis, nothing to worry about". Luckily I decided to phone my consultant direct who confirmed the CD diagnosis. The GP failed to read that part of the results to me! Given that there is also a family history of CD then he should definitely be tested as it is genetic. Hope you finally get to the bottom of it. Good luck!

    Hi, It's Juliet again with an update as I've had quite a few replies to my posts so thought it would be a good idea to let you know how we're getting on. I think things are moving in the right direction. We haven't changed anything much that we're doing except that we tend to give our daugter the movicol every other day rather than every day. The theory being that if given every other day, it gives the body a rest from it and an opportunity for a decent sized poo tobuild up, rather than smaller ones, so that our daughter is more likely to feel the signals and go to the loo. It's not perfect but she has sometimes gone full weeks without anything much of an accident. She's had a bit of a relapse this week as she's got herself a bit bunged up, but is now getting to the stage where she will tell us that her tummy is sore and we can have a logical discussion with her about the fact that this is because she really needs to do a big poo. She's starting to understand now that the food goes in, is digested and the waste needs to come out as poo, otherwise it gets stuck and she ends up with a tummy ache and accidents. Today wasn'tlooking good, a couple of accidents yesterday but no proper movement, so a bit extra movicol today as well as some Andrews last night, and she's been on and off the toilet since she got home from school. I was feeling that I had my head perpetually upside down wiping her bum but in the end she stuck with it and eventually took herself off and did a good poo and told me that her tummy felt better. So at the moment with us, it's a combination of keeping a constant eye on how much movicol to give her, encouraging her to have toilet time and discussing it with her as calmly and supportively as we can. Also we try to have dinner early enough to give her body time to process some of it and go to the toilet before we're straight into bedtime, but as we're both working parents that isn't always possible. One key I think is to take the blame out of it and try to get them to at least tell you when they've had an accident, and if they do, explain that it's because they need to do a proper poo, get them to sit on the toilet while you clean up the mess and try for a decent poo there & then and discuss it calmly with them. Not always possible I know, especially if they just refure to cough to it and it's left up to you to sniff the air and know!! You have to somehow get through to the child that they are the only person who can sort it out, but you have confidence in them to sort it out and you will help them as much as possible, and then if they do show some responsibility for it, like my daughter did today, tell them that you are proud of them and you're sure that they're going to be able to sort it out. I do think that our daughter is going to be on movicol for a good while though. We have found that when she is in a good patch, her poos do get softer and we need to reduce her dose, which to us shows that at those times, her bowel habits are getting more healthy and in time, her habits will be healthy enough to cut the movicol right down and eventually stop it. But it has to be done in v small increments, otherwise before you know it, you can be back to square one! It takes concentration and dedication this lark, and a lot of hand cream to moisturise those hands which seem to spend all day washing knickers, but I think all these lovely children will get there in the end. x

    My son had Hirchsrungs when he was just weeks old he didn't have a poo for over a week they told me to give him pure orange to help him go to the toilet but then his tummy was so big and he was grey in colour I was scared cos I knew that somthing serious was wrong he had 3 massive operations and he had a bag on for five months of his life he was close to deaths door, He not only had Hirchsprungs but he also had Toxic Colitise or whatever the name is for it when the tummy is so badly infected he was a very lucky boy and I have loads of great doctors to thank for saving his life xx

    My 5 year old son has them, we have had him at docs twice and both times told to do nothing as they will go. That's been about 4 months and they are spreading. Back of arm, under arm back of leg and tummy. Bought tea tree oil and savlon , applied tonight on tummy first so we will see if that works over the next week.Previously some of the cores from the spots have come out already and we managed to squeeze them out and spots have gone black or red. That was before the tea tree, let's hope this oil works wonders!

    DermAllay! Try it, my sons were awful and so uncomfortable and were spreading all over his bottom , inner thighs and down towards his knees. I used DermAllay, shipped from States, fantastic results! I was very sceptical and wondered if I was guilty of being a marketers delight but they are nearly gone after a week of using :)

    As above Linda. Hope your okay

    Hi Teressa it is worth having her tested again after a high intake of gluten for 6 weeks as if she is eating to little of this it can be missed when tested, I wouldnt settle for IBS as I was diagnosed with this when I was about 6 and remember being called a fussy child as I wouldnt eat anything but I assiated food with pain and no matter how hard I tried I just didnt want to eat anything which meant I had a animia would go dizzy and fall asleep at school, Uni was a nightmare too I kept going back for tests but my GP just kept saying It was IBS, I also lost my first job out of uni because I fell asleep at my desk and was ill at least once a week with all sorts of infections because my immune system wernt strong enough to fight them off, since being diagnosed I have such a better quality of life and havnt been sick for 7 months now!!!! Please all parents do not just settle for IBS as I wouldnt want your children to go through what I did and now at 24 im just about adjusting to a new life, Good luck

    my child is 12 and is a 36E .she keeps complaining of back ache and her periods are painful for her.i have gave her pills for it but she says they dont work!she has been having days of school because of them and is missing important lessons!!!! what can i do ???? + how do i help her??? .
