I'll start, but there are several others who actually have children suffering with this and I'm sure they have advice for you. But, it concerned me about the heavy eyes and headache - has he been tested for food allergies or allergies, in general? When I have a flare up from a food allergy, it also affects my head and eyes + my stomach. Or, has he seen an ENT or maybe even a Neurologist to make sure he's not having migraines? Even as a child, the drs. told my parents I should see a psychologist/psychiatrist because I had a "nervous stomach" - and, at the age of 59, I can't tell you how many times, in my younger years, I heard "it's all in your head". Honestly! - you would think the medical profession had progressed beyond that. IBS is a real disease, not a psychosomatic illness - it is well documented - look at Shawneric's posts on this website, he references many other sites, as well as his own which has much valuable information.

Poor baby. Does he have diarrhea? If so, can you get him to eat potatoes, bread, rice, bananas, bagels, applesauce???? Those are excellent.

Take the time to read Heather's story - explore all the diagnostic information on this website and the other posts-it will be well worth your time.
