My son is 14 years old and since 2 weeks ago is suffering from an acute right lower abdominal pain, with nausea, diarrhea, some headache. Took him to the ER and blood test came back ok, CT scan showed some swollen Lymph nodes but all organs ok. They send him home with a disgnosis of mesenteric adenitis. Took him to the Gastro doctor and he request some stool test and send him home with nexium, tylenol and carafate. My son is still complaining of acute pain so I took him again to the ER and they gave him morphine and advised that he needed to be admitted to control the pain and see a gastro doctor again as his blood and urine test came back ok. what else should or I need to do? where should I take him or what need to be asked to the doctor? Thanks for your help

  • Plz post back if you learn anything. My 9 year old son is going through the same thing. Possibly brought on by mono. Three weeks now doubled over in pain. Not much sympathy in ER other than "he will outgrow it." He was released even though writhing in pain. CT/Ultra sound showed nothing unusual. Is working on a month of missing school. Don't know what to do.
