Common problem: This is usually due to one of many stomach viruses. The pain is from labor pain like cramps when the injured gut is pushing fluids around.Most last a few days and will respond to simple diet modification /plenty of fluids to maintain hydration. If worrisome have him seen, but this can resolve quickly. Most kids that age have it 2-3 times/yr.
