I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

I wanted the reason behind Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome and its solution.

I'm a sixteen year old girl with no past medical problems besides Seborrheic Dermatitis in my ears. I've been wondering if I have an anxiety disorder, Gastroduodenal Crohn's Disease, or Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome. On and off in the mornings I'll wake up with nausea or bad stomach pain. Many times it will cause me to vomit and sometimes the vomiting makes me feel a little better. Although, sometimes this would come on in the middle of school in the past school year. This morning I also have gas associated with it. I've has this problem mildly since I was probably 11 or 12. Although, in this past year it has flared up a lot. Any ideas of what could be wrong with me? Thanks so much!

I forgot a detail... Last December it got really bad during my period and before a two week vacation I weighed 113 and ever since then I've weighed 105. I do not gain weight and I never have really. I had period pain so bad then I couldn't move or speak.
General & Family Physician Dr. Gautam Das's  Response
Hi. Please take a note of what factors cause aggravation and consult a gastroenterologist for an upper GI endoscopy. This will help to establish a diagnosis. In the meantime please take care to avoid hot and spicy food.....and long periods of hunger.

No you do not have the diseases mentioned by you so kindly do not worry.Suggest consult a Gastrenterologist to rule out any stomach ulceration or gastritis.

my son who is 34 years old has what was diagnosed as cannibald hemersis syndrome, which i believe is cyclic vomiting syndrome. It has been going on now for the last 5 years but more frequently at least 2-3 times per year. His father has an autoimmune disease graves disease, diabetes and either hyper or hypothyroidism. As if that is not enough I have an autoimmune disease sarcoidosis which became neurosarcoidosis at one time in life but now I do not experience all of the symptoms. We have lived in environments with mold and I was wondering if that could be the culprit of his sickness along with a mixture of inherited diseases from his father and me. I also wonder if he is being poisoned? When he goes to the ER, his heart rate, liver (ketosis), dehydration, blood pressure high help us please. This is the first time that a doctor has told us about cannibald...he has too much MJ in his system which is causing it, oh, he takes showers/bath at least 10-30 per day which makes him feel better when he is sick.

I think that my 4 year old daughter is currently going through an episode of cyclic vomiting syndrome. This is the third time this has happened this year and seems to to be triggered when she does not eat dinner the night before. She has food allergies, as well, but they have under strict control for the past year with no reactions. Her father has a history of migraines which can be a cause according to the literature I have read. What do you recommend for treatment/prevention and do you know of any physicians in the Charlotte, NC area that can be of assistance to us? Thank you for any help you can provide. Myra Mason

I have had a small red patch on my neck for around 4 weeks now but in the last week it has started to spread, the colour is less prominent but the area is growing quite large. I also have seb derm on my face especially the brow region and wondered whether it could be related to this. I am currently at university and the earliest doctors appointment is a date when I have returned home for the summer, are there any over the counter items I could buy to help with this? All the best, Sean Walsh.

For years, I've had chronic thick white ear flaking in my left outer ear (much less in my right). I clean it and within 24 hrs or less, more flakes have returned. Have tried an anti-dandruff shampoo in my ears -- This doesn't seem to make much of a difference.
