My son is 8 1/2 years old and started having on and off stomach ache's for a couple of months. When I took him to the doctor's, they told me he had acid reflux and put him on medication. It has not helped at all. As soon as he starts to eat something he feels like he is going to throw up. I am not sure what it could be at this point.

Try a Gastro-interologist.

And sometimes, kids feel their anxiety in their stomachs making anything hard to eat or drink.

I just got my 7 year old a worry stone. It is a little rock he can carry in his pocket and rub when he's scared. The key is it's something your child has to be in control of.

BUT CHECK THE HEALTH THING FIRST!!!! Don't stop at your family doctor.
