One of the most common causes of this kind of complaint in children of your son's age is a condition called 'mesenteric adenitis'. This is due to enlargement of lymph glands in the abdomen and usually occurs at the same time or soon after a child has or has had tonsillitis.If your son's pain a fever persists he must be seen by a doctor.
