  • Does this happen after she has eaten?  Because it sounds like a food allergy.  My daughter has a peanut allergy and that is exactly how she reacts when she is exposed.  Each time she is exposed her reactions get worse.

     You should take her to the doctor.

  • I am an RN. Take your daughter to the nearest ER. This could be the beginning of something serious, or a symptom of something that is already there. Please don't wait until she gets in so much trouble you can't help her. I will pray for her and you and your family. Love in JESUS, Carla the LORDSlady

  • I agree with Lordslady. Get her checked out to make sure it is nothing serious. It could be that she is hyperventilating when she vomits.
