What symptoms may accompany abdominal pain in children?

“Symptoms of abdominal pain may come on quickly or they may have been present for a while. The pain may be steady, worsening, or it may come and go, and it can be either mild or severe.

Noticing the pattern and the location of the pain can help your doctor with making a diagnosis.

Abdominal pain in children may be accompanied by other symptoms, such as wind, burping, passing gas (farting), vomiting, diarrhea, constipation or fever.

You may notice behaviors in your child that suggest they might be in pain. These include crying, curling up in a ball, wanting to stay still because of the pain, not wanting to play, refusing food or drinks, becoming fussy or grumpy, and facial expressions.”
