Hi. My 4 year old has had a stomachache behind his belly button all day. It comes and goes but is so bad that he screams and now it is has him moaning in his sleep. I have given his meds for pain but Im worried about appendics. Its 1am what should I do? Should I take him to the emergency room?

I went through this once! After a sleepless night I brought my daughter in around 6am. She passed a big gas bubble in the car, and was fine when we got her to the hospital. I am glad we decided to take her in, though, because it could have been something worse. Call your pediatrician and ask- they will want to help no matter what time it is.
Good luck!
