My six year old son had been complaining about a sore tummy for about 10 days now. At first we thought it may be due to over eating or mixing too many different foods. We’ve taken him to the docs three times and always felt like we were over reacting and it was just a little indigestion or gas and although I’ve been giving him gaviscon for about three days now his symptoms haven’t changed. I’ve decided that I’m not going to rely on what these GPs have said and made me feel like I’m overreacting, I’m taking him to hospital just to be safe. I’d rather they do scan and say ‘yeah it’s just constipation or indigestion’ then me ignoring it and God forbid it’s something serious.
