Health Tip: Is a Stomachache Serious?
Signs your child should see a doctor

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- When your child complains of a stomachache, it's usually nothing to worry about. But sometimes stomach pain can signal a more serious problem.

The University of Michigan Health System explains these warning signs that a child's stomachache requires a doctor's attention:

  • If the child is growing more slowly than typical, or is losing weight.
  • If the child has excessive vomiting or chronic, severe diarrhea.
  • If the child is losing blood from the gastrointestinal tract, or has a fever that can't be explained.
  • If the child has persistent right-side abdominal pain.
  • If the child has a family history of inflammatory bowel disease.
