  • Feel of his stomach. The stomach is located on his left side close to his ribs. If there is any kind of swelling there get him to the doctor as soon as possible. Has he complained of shoulder pain on that side at all? I don't want to go into why I am saying to do this or asking you about the shoulder pain because I don't want to scare you needlessly. Make sure to get him into the doctor. Don't wait. Also, I knew a kid that had symptoms similar to your little boy's and it turned out to be his appendix.My 8 year old child has had no appitiate, very sleepy all the time and was running a fever and everytime he eats his stomach hurts more then it hurts normally.
