Right side is appendix. I have no idea what it might be. Just make sure he doesnt get too dehydrated. Plenty of clear fluids. Watch for fever, and dont let him stay with pain too long before going to the dr or er.

Hi, it could be one of two things...

Least inmortant thing is gas...Try giving him something for gas like immodium or maloxx maxx. If the pain is persistant, go to the er immediately. It could be spleen..If spleen, then it could be a life or death situation, but if he is not showing too much discomfot, then it is more than likely gas...Gas can cause a whole slew of pain and problems

It could well be just a bug. If his stomach pain gets worse, then it certainly is worth calling the dr for advice
