Tests and diagnosis

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Your baby's doctor will do a physical exam to identify any possible causes for your baby's distress, such as a blockage in your baby's intestines (intestinal obstruction). If your baby is otherwise healthy, he or she may be diagnosed with colic.

Lab tests, X-rays and other diagnostic tests aren't usually needed, but in unclear cases they help to exclude other conditions as possible causes.
