child vomiting only at night - Page 2

post #21 of 29

Hi,

I have been having this exact problem with my son, who is 6, this week.  He vomited and had diarrhea once Sunday night.  I kept him home from school Monday.  He was fine all day and night Monday.  Then vomited on Tuesday night, Wednesday night and twice Thursday night.  He has no fever and is fine all day.  I haven't yet brought him to the doctors but if this continues, I guess I will have to.  Was curious to ask what your doctor thought?  I was thinking the possibility of reflux or anxiety, but just not sure.  Thanks and good luck!

My 5 year old DD has had the exact same problem for almost two weeks. Occasional Diarrhea and vomiting at night. She has one or two clear days then in the night wakes up with a stomach ache and throws up. Some times she has diarrhea too. The doc says its a stomach virus. I'd love to know what your doc says. We don't know anyone else with a stomach virus and no one else in the family has gotten it so it makes me a little nervous. Hope your son is feeling better by now!

This might be why they needed a CT of the head. My almost 7 year old daughter has the same problem.

Okay, now I'm all freaked out!

 

My DS, age 3, had two nights of vomiting around Halloween; he was feverish one of the days so I figured it was a stomach bug. Then last night he had the really severe vomiting, every 30 minutes or so from about midnight to 5am (though the intervals became longer as the night went on). I thought maybe it was food poisoning because that is how *I* vomit when my body is rejecting something. He was fine all day,  no symptoms, then puked again tonight. Ugh.

I wouldn't worry! My kids vomit for all different reasons. This has happened to my DD. she has puked been fine a day and then puked again two days later or so. Just keep him hydrated and if it goes on another day I would call the dr.

Or almost an entire food group could do it, when the foods are varied but they all have the offending thing in it (such as wheat, dairy, or soy). Sinus infections, especially fungal ones, are hard to diagnose and persistent too. My dad had that, ended up curing it with a nasal irrigation thing, I think it had distilled water and baking soda in it I don't know what else.
