My 16 mo old son wakes up from naps, screeming and crying for 30-40 min. Tried pain meds before nap and snack, no difference. What is up?

In brief: Depends

How long has this been occurring? Are there other symptoms? Is the toddler healthy? See your pediatrician to look for an explanation.

In brief: Call your doc

Call your pediatrician.
Your child should probably be evaluated. Also call your doc before giving pain meds to children younger than 2... Especially for abdominal pain (call 24/7; the practice should encourage this).
