In brief: Complex problem

Symptoms of nausea, cramps and non-specific abdominal pain in children are not uncommon, and the cause or causes can be very difficult to determine.
The key is to arrange appropriate investigations to help rule out significant disorders. Management usually entails a broad based approach, including dietary, counselling, symptom control with medications; rarely surgery.
