Coughing fits and severe stomach pain

Patient : Hello Dr. My 3 yr old son has had a pretty bad cough for the last week, ive brought him to the dr office where he was given antibiotics because his tonsils were inflammed, and told me to increase his inhalers to 4 times a day 2 puffs he was diagnosed with asthma when he was 1 yrs old. after three days of anitbiotics, and increasing the puffers, nothing has changed. he is still coughing a lot, and complaining that his stomach is really hurting him. he crys after every coughing fit and the puffers dont seem to help. i brought him to the hospital because i wouldve like for them to do an xray and see if anything was wrong with his lungs. he didnt do an xray and im still conserned that there is something else wrong with my son. i know him better than anyone and he is just not acting like himself. he is unresponsive, he doesnt want to eat, and the look in his eyes tells me something is terribly wrong. i want my sweet baby back. please help. i dont know what to do!
