it's been a while since i've been on here! my lad (just 5 years) keeps telling me that he has tummy ache. i kept trying to brush it off as tummy ache but have a sneaking feeling that it might actually be his asthma flaring up as i try to do all the usuals - keep off food, rub him tummy, dristraction etc but it doesn't work. however, if i give him his salbutamol he doesn't mention it again. he's also sounding like he's getting a cough. has anyone seen this in their child re. chest pain/tightening? he doesn't have any other signs i.e increase rate of breathing, using his tummy, noist breathing etc.
