My 4 year old has been complaining on and off for about a week of being "dizzy" and occasional stomach aches. While I'm not sure a 4 year old knows what dizzy actually means, its a little concerning to me. Not sure about the stomach aches either but there has been no vomiting or loss of appetite. He also has just gotten over a bad cough. The doctors work with us but I'm not finding them all that helpful. Anyone have ideas or kids complaining about similar issues?

Dizziness could indicate an inner ear infection.

I would say a secondary infection of an ear infection, that sometimes shows up after an illness

I was gonna say the same. And OP kids at that age know what dizzy means. Your Dr is an idiot.

Of course a four year old knows what dizzy means. Get a new doctor. One that doesn't think kids are stupid.
