My six year old son has recently started vomiting at school. This is new and just started this month. He has been going to school extremely excited to be going. We have taken him to the doctors and the doctor has said that there is nothing wrong with him. We have changed what he takes for lunch everyday just a couple of days ago and my wife has been going to see him at lunch time for the past couple of days. Even on the days that he comes home from school when he gets home he is perfectly healthy, with a good appetite and playful. Then now this morning he asked to miss school. We do not want to force him to go but it is important that he does not miss much school. We don't know what to do since while at home he seems to be fine. We have asked him if some one is bullying him or something to that affect and he says no. Thank in advance for all of the help!View Thread
Thank you for the reply. As of now we have learned that he is constipated, we are treating him with miralax and seems to be doing well at home and will see tomorrow when school starts. It took three visits to the pediatrician in a week but it was determined through x-rays that he has a bit of constipation and maybe some reflux issues.View Thread
