When a child continually complains of a physical discomfort with no apparent medical reason, it is possible that the child has emotional problems that he or she is unable to cope with.
Examples of such stress among children are as follows.
Being teased or bullied at school.
Ignore by schoolmates and friends.
Do not perform well in an exam.
Unresolved family issue.
Moving to a new house or changing a new school.
Loss of a family member.
The inability to overcome stressful situations such as the above can be important causes of physical complaints.
Once the problem is identified, talked about and handled appropriately, the symptoms may abate naturally or resolve completely.
The parents play the most important role in handling such cases.
