DD1 often complains of having a "sore tummy". No other related symptoms. She then goes on to play or eat or whatever just fine.
Does anyone else's preschooler do that? I'm wondering if it's a stress thing? She's a happy kid, but me and DH are often stressed and she picks up on it.

Hi, my DD used to do this - I thought it was nothing serious as she was otherwise fine so didn't do anything (I thought it was behavioural). However, I did end up seeing a GP about it some time later and he referred her to a gastro paed who diagnosed constipation. Needless to say, I felt terrible, even though she was regular so I had no idea.
So my suggestion for what its worth would be to let your doctor know, just in case.

Worthwhile seeing GP and getting it noted.
Kids can get stomach migraines. I know when I was finally Dx with migraine at 12 GP said that explained lots of my childhood ( I also had appendix out too).

Perhaps keep an eye on her bowel movements (too soft or too hard or regular etc.) and see if you can see a correlation between when she complains and what happens next.
If they tend to be a bit hard, is she getting enough fiber in her diet? Too much processed food used to give my DS a bit of constipation (savoury biscuits particularly for some reason). And lots of fruit like apple and grapes would fix him up!
