My daughter was diagnosed with Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome at the age of 8 after suffering for years with on and off vomitting at night a few times a month sometimes 9 months out of the year. She usually vomits at least 15 times within the first few hours and then is very lethargic and vomits on and off sometimes for a couple days. She does get the abdominal migraine with the vomiting where she gets the intense pain in her belly in between vomiting. This is all usually brought on by her being stressed out, good or bad, and some foods that she eats. It is almost guaranteed that she will be vomiting on her birthday and holidays. It is very hard for her and us as parents knowing that this is something that we cannot make go away. They say that it usually moves into actual migraines of the head as they go into the teen years. Right now they have her on Omeprazole liquid for reflux which helps tremendously with the tummy aches that she used to always complain of and we also have Phenergan suppositories to give her with the onset of vomiting which have really seemed to help as well. I was just looking to hear of any other experiences that people may have had with this and what helps them cope?
