My very sweet 6year old has recently been diagnoisised (after nearly 12months) with cyclic vomiting. He is currently being medicated for it - although we are having some trouble getting the dosage right.
At the moment our paed believes that the main trigger is stress and since the majority of vomitting occurs at school - he also believes that this is the major/only trigger
The school assures me that they cannot pin-point a "stress" at school - they say hes not being bullied, socially hes quite popular and academically he is easily in the "highest achievment" groups - but they have stopped extending him in case this is stressing him
He is an emtionally sensitive kid who tells us everything (and always has) but even still he hasnt come forth with something that is stressing him badly.
Our paed also recommends NOT going to councilling at this stage as, he believes that will reinforce the cycle of stress vomitting (ie highlighting my son has "a problem" will give my son something else to stress over - causing more vomitting)
I am wondering if anyone elses kid has this syndrome (since it primarily found in girls) and what you found helped the situation
