What causes hiccups and vomiting in a child?

My 2 year old son spiked a 107 degree fever last week Thursday, which resolved itself overnight with Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen. Tuesday night he woke up and vomitted x1 in his crib, I gave him Zofran and he was fine the rest of the night. Last night, Wednesday, he vomited again after drinking a lot of water and having the hiccups. This morning he has been having so many hiccups, should I be worried?

Hi,

You need not be worried at all as what you are describing seem to be normal and physiological hiccups.
These are not related to the fever which he had and which could as well be a simple viral illness from which he is already recovering.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

my son is on these meds. Pristiq, My son thsts theses meds. Pritiq, Lithium Carb, Olanzapine. Hes been noticing and myself that he has acid reflux and gets hickups bad, plus when he lays down at nite the acid reflux seems to be worse, im not sure if he has swelling of the throat, but i,m concerned because he seems to get chocked and can,t swollow sometimes when eatn. Is this a big concern, sholud he let his doctor know. Now when he was on someother meds in the past, he was throwing up in his sleep and was inhaleing or you,d call it vomiting and it got in his lungs one time, and they collasped. That was back in 2010 when he was on seriqiul he no longer takes that. so the new 3 meds he,s on now is what i,m worried about. please give me any addvice. Thank You concernerd mom.
