I am sorry to hear your son is having pain.<br /><br />Unfortunately, the health care professionals are unable to diagnose over the internet. It is difficult to guess what is going on without an exam and knowing his history.<br /><br />Please contact a health care provider for an exam to get this evaluated.<br /><br />In the meantime, our <a href="http://symptoms.webmd.com/default.htm">Symptom Checker</a> may be helpful and you may want to repost with more information on our <a href="http://exchanges.webmd.com/parenting-exchange">Parenting Community</a> for possible response.<br /><br />Hope you find answers and he is feeling better soon,<br />Elizabeth
