Thanks for writing in.
I think your son could probably have cyclic vomiting
syndrome. Typically, triggers in children include emotional stress
and excitement, eating certain foods such as chocolate or cheese, eating too much, or eating just before going to bed. Hot weather, physical exhaustion, menstruation
, and motion sickness
can also trigger episodes.
The next time round, the symptoms can be prevented when he is starting to get weak with drugs like ondansetron
. During and after the episode, its important that he take enough fluids with electrolytes like oral rehydration solution or gatorade. Please discuss this with your paediatrician or gastroenterologist.
Hope this helps
