Answer
Hi, Adeline,

This is something where you really should see the doctor.  If it is long term pain, it makes it less likely that it is serious.  I suspect this is something like a lactose intolerance or other food intolerance, but please see your doctor.  A trial of no milk or dairy for a week or two would be reasonable to be sure this is not a lactose problem.

Good luck, Dr. Olson

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
