5 year old with stomach pains?

My 5 year old son complains of stomach pain everytime he has to poop. Sometimes he doubles over in pain. The doctor said he needed to be on constipation meds but she didn't give me anything or tell me what I should get at the doctor. Is there something that I can feed him differently to help with it?

Flax seeds will help move things along. You can sprinkle them on just about anything. Increase fiber intake, such as fruits and spinach less milk and more water will also help. Does your child drink alot of milk? If so maybe your son is allergic to cows milk? I personally wouldnt use meds i would just change the diet and have things moving along in a natural way :)
