My 6 years old son always complains about feeling sick... this has been happening for years
JA: The Paediatrician can help. To begin, what are all your son's symptoms, and how severe are they?
Customer: He complains about the sickness, sometimes throws up, sometimes not. When he is feeling like this, he always says he is hot and also he breathes fast
JA: The obstetrician-gynaecologist will be able to answer that. Can I ask what has he tried to relieve the issue? When did he last visit a doctor?
Customer: There’s a long time we have seen the doctor. We usually try to give him some tea, like fresh mint tea or bay leaves tea.
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in his medical history you think the Paediatrician should know?
Customer: No, he is ok, no allergies or anything else

1. What's his date of birth?
2. What's his current weight and height please?
3. Does this get aggravated by spicy food?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
His date of birthday is *****
He weighs 21Kg
He is 1,23m
He doesn’t eat spicy food
Thank you for the information.I understand your concern.
I am glad to assure you that his growth parameters as per CDC standards are quite good.So this rules out any serious medical condition.Now coming to the analysis of his symptoms, I feel that this could be gastroesophageal reflux.
It may not require medical management as his height and weight are normal.But as he's symptomatic a therapeutic trial with Lansoprazole or Omeprazole along with a prokinetic can be tried for 4 weeks please.May I suggest you discuss these possibilities with his pediatrician and get him appropriately evaluated and managed please.I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you, and that I have earned my 5 star rating today!
