I have a 7yr old boy who has been suffering from cronic abdomim pain for over 2 weeks now. He seems to be more effected by this pain in the early mornings, its non stop pain from about 12:30am straight through till about 4-5am, the pain doesnt seem as bad during the day.
I have taken to the hospital on a coulple of occassions, where they gave him the diagnosis of constipation, i thought that this could be a possibility due to pass problems with occassional constipation.
They gave him an enema and peg-light to drink along with a high fiber diet and healthy eating habits.

My son now has regular bowl movement(diarriea) but
The pain has not gone away at all!!!

I took him to my family doctor, he felt his belly and said " his colon feel empty"

So if he is no longer constipated, no fever, or vomitting, What the ***l could it be!?

We are both physicaly, emotionley and mental exhausted. We need some answers please
