I'm sorry your little one is sick, but this is worth trying. When Juniper was one time vomitty I made a ginger infusion and sweetened it with honey. Ginger is renowned for its anti inflammatory properties and she benefitted really well.
What I did was peel about an inch of root ginger, sliced it thinly then mashed it. You can use a rolling pin for this, or a pestle and mortar to grind the ginger root into a mush. Add a cup of water, up to 1.5 cups and boil the ginger root for about 10 minutes or more. Remove from the heat, add honey to sweeten and that's it. Even a little more ginger wouldn't harm, about a thumb-sized piece. Again, peel off the hard outer skin, slice and mush down, and this time boiling it for longer. Ginger is also very good for sea sickness, always chewed some crystallized ginger. It really does work and sits well on the tummy.
Someone I know whose daughter was around 18 months started vomiting at night. They got her checked and she had cancer. She is good now but that is what I thought of and you mentioned a CT scan of the head. Another note though is that she was projectile vomiting and you didn't mention that. It probably wouldn't be that but maybe that is why the doc is checking just to make sure? Seems like a lot of kids just get sick at night! Seems like a precaution they take.
I believe this disease describes my daughters condition almost exactly, but we are still going through tests. She is almost 5, she will vomit at 3am, wont the next night or 2 and then 3am again the next night, just in time to wreck the mattress protector that had finally air dried. All with no symptoms during the day, other than possibly a sore tummy prior to going to bed.
Unfortunately it looks like there isn't much knowledge or any known cures, other than it has a link to mothers with migraines, which my wife has. It also says she will likely grow out of it, and likely have migraines in the future.
