Stomach Ache Like Wanting To Defecate?
My son has HSP, for the pain in his joints has subsided and the rash has also started to subside. Urine test results are good. What I want to ask suddenly is that my child complains that his stomach is throbbing like he wants to defecate. But if you only go to the bathroom to defecate a little, then your defecation is not solid. Does this have anything to do with HSP? Please enlighten. And what should I do?? Thank you in advance.
