FAO Herbietea - Cyclical Vomiting Syndrome

In March this year you replied to my posting about my son's vomiting bouts...
Following your reply, I discussed with my Dr and she referred us to a consultant straight away (which I was relieved about as she knows about my vomiting phobia and I was worried she might think this was about me and not my son).
At no point did I suggest CVS but described his symptons and the regularity of it all. The Consultant immediately said he thought it sounded like CVS and didn't want to subject DS1 to other tests only to arrive but at his original diagnosis (will review in four months).

So, just wanted to thank you so much for pointing me in the direction of cyclical vomiting syndrome. I am so relieved to have a diagnosis/reason.

We are currently going through another "episode" and I am coping so much better than previously and his symptons/behaviour make so much more sense. Although we are still struggling to get the anti-sickness medicine to stay down!

Have you found any other sources of support other than the CVSA?
