Is appendicitis a possible cause of migraine and vomiting?

Hello. My 7 year old son is experiencing headaches (migraines) and vomiting. This has happened once before and we were concerned it was due to him getting less sleep. He has had stomach pain since 1:30 PM CST. Began throwing up around 5:30 PM CST. Thrown up 3 times between 5:30 PM CST to 6:51 PM CST Is appendicitis a possible cause of this? We ve taken him to our family doctor who has suggested that this was simply due to migraines and that it s something he will grow out of. I am concerned.

just wondering if it is possible to live through undiagnosed appendicitis? instead of vomiting, it was diarrhea. then constipation, mostly diarrhea for months. literally felt like being stabbed for 10 months, before the pain was dulled by pain meds. they had to be increased up to 100mg. s of oxycodone a day, and i finally got so sick, i vomited ,hallucinated and my upper right abdomen and right kidney was hurting. but after receiving antibiotics, i am no longer on pain meds, tho i do believe i suffered alot of damage to my peritoneal membrane. this happened immediately after robotic surgery, which happened right after exploratory showed pus wheths before ovaries had been removed 3 months before. three weeks after ovaries were removed, i hurt myself trying to save my neighbor, when she went into respiratory arrest. the infection was, i believe, misdiagnosed as blood clots. after all this, i don t have any money in the bank right now. but i will on june 3rd, if you ll keep this and send me an email to answer.
