yes hes 9 years old, and has been ill since dec 13 2010, started with viral temp, then croup, and then since 18 dec 2010 has had constant stomachache, hes been hospitalised x2 with suspected appendicitis, had trip to a & e with a cluster headache and spent another night in hosp[ital because i couldnt control his pain. he can be on a 'high' then just goes 'down' which can last few hours, but when he 'snaps' out of it its not down to calpol or ibuprofen because they were given an hour or so earlier. doctor now given him merbentyl syrup but hes still in pain. is there anything you can suggest i can do to help him?

He seems to have digestive issues that stem from something else. Celiac disease or Chrones? Like the other mom said on here, get another opinion.

My only suggest is get another opinoin. That is a long time for a 9 year old to be sick or in pain.
