Hi, my son is 10 years old and from last 3 to 4 months he is not going to school. As soon as he step into the School his stomach starts paining. We have done Sonography twice. He is not acting also for not going to school. We can fee his severe pain when we insist for School or tuition. My family is thinking that some negativity he is facing from. We also shown to 2 religious gurus they also tried. Please advice.Ans: I can understand your concern for your son's health and education. It sounds like he is experiencing a lot of physical discomfort when he has to go to school, and this is making it difficult for him to attend. It's good that you have already taken him to a doctor for a sonography and have sought advice from religious gurus, but there might be other options to consider as well. One possibility is that your son may be experiencing anxiety related to going to school. Anxiety can manifest in physical symptoms like stomach pain, and it can be difficult for children to understand and express what they are feeling. It might be helpful to talk to your son and try to understand what is causing his anxiety. You can also seek the help of a counselor or therapist who can help your son develop coping skills to manage his anxiety. Another possibility is that your son might be experiencing bullying or other negative experiences at school that are causing him distress. It's important to talk to your son's teachers and school staff to find out if there are any issues that might be contributing to his discomfort. They might be able to provide additional support or resources to help your son feel more comfortable at school. Finally, it's important to continue to monitor your son's physical health and work with his doctor to rule out any underlying medical conditions. If your son continues to experience pain or discomfort, it's important to seek medical attention and follow up with any recommended treatments or interventions. Overall, it's important to be patient and supportive with your son during this time. By working together with your son, his school, and his healthcare providers, you can help him overcome his difficulties and feel more comfortable and confident in school. Now condition of my son got more worsen now we cannot talk to him if we talk his head start paining you can't talk to him in any manner anything we met Psychiatrist many time he suggested to some medicine of no use.
