Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome: Dr. Kumar, please?Dr. Kumar, My son has had a tendancy to vomit easily since the day he was born. As an infant I could control hs vomiting by feeding him less at a time, with more frequent feedings. As a young child he began to develop psychological triggers to the vomiting. I have dicussed this with our pediatrician, and was often told not to worry because he has always been in the 90th percentile for his weight. He is now seven. I have had him tested for thyroid disorders and diabetes. a number of years ago I gave him prescription antacids for a short time before I could no longer bear the idea if it. They did not help. I will describe his triggers:
Restaurant visits, regardless of food eaten
The school cafateria (no one wants to sit next to him anymore)
Foods I think may bother:
Not milk, has no trouble with dairy
Sights and smells or mere suggestions or ideas that he thinks are "gross".
sometimes the vomiting is sudden, he doesn't expect it,and sometimes its preceeded by a bout of slight nausea. He often feels completely better after vomiting and will even ask to finish a meal if he was eating.
Occasionally he will vomit and then become afraid of vomiting again which in turn makes him continue to vomit for the rest of the day. By the next he is fine.
He does not get dehydrated, and is otherwise healthy. he has mild asthma which goes away in the summer. He is not on any daily medications.
He is an emotionally sensative and highly empathetic child. He is very kind at heart. He loves openly.
He does have occasionaly periods of anger, frustration and hyperactiviy which last for about a month and appear twice to three times a year, in which vomiting episodes seem to increase.
If I press this issue with the pediatrician he will end up being prescribed medication that I belive will do more harm than good. I can not afford to visit a homeopathic doctor.
Please any advice will be much appreciated.
