Please help! My 3yr old son wakes up screaming 3-4 times a night with severe stomach pain. This has been going on since birth. I just don't understand why he seems fine during the day, but is up at night screaming. He is inconsolable. He's so exhausted and all he wants to do is sleep, but he will jerk as if it's a sharp gas pain then starts screaming and will pass gas here and there. Gas medicine does not work.
We've been to doctors and specialists but all the testing comes up negative or normal. We kept hoping that he will "grow out of it", or that as he got a bit older, we'd be able to know more about what exactly he's feeling, but that's not the case. It has been going on for too long and I keep hitting dead ends. The doctors do not care to help and after they do the routine testing and all comes back normal, they are not interested in investigating any further.
If anyone can help, or has any suggestions, we would reeeeally appreciate some input. Thanks for your time!
