My son is throwing up but not sick.

Has anyone else dealt with this? DS is in Kindergarten. Yesterday the school nurse called me to come get him because he threw up. When I picked him up, he was happy as could be. He told me he just ate too much. I believed it, because he acted like his normal self and had no more problems.

Today when I picked him up at the end of the day, his teacher told me he threw up again. This time it was 2 hours after he had last eaten. He is still acting like his normal self. He still says he just ate too much. I know well enough to not believe that this time.

I called his pediatrician. We only spoke on the phone. She just told me to watch his temperature and bring him in if he gets a fever. She said that she has had to admit other children to the hospital with strep, and it started this way. His temperature was 97 degrees, so I don't see a fever coming on. I'm thinking about seeing another pediatrician.

Has anyone else dealt with this? Any suggestions?

  • I would wait a few more days and if it keeps happening I would take him to see another doctor. It may just be his eating to fast and/or to much

  • Agree with above, also this is only happening at school right? Do you think he might be getting picked on at school and this is his nerves? I am not saying it is but I know when my DD was having issues at school she did that or would complain about a tummy ache but still act "normal".

  • There is a strain of strep going around that starts with vomiting and no temp. Keep an eye on him and, if you pack his lunch for him, try and pack a little LESS...see if it's really "eating" too much that's causing him to get sick...if he has school lunch, ask the teacher to see if someone can keep an eye on him for a day or so to see if he's eating too fast/too much.

    Good luck!

  • My neice does this..but she makes herself get sick to AVOID going to school..(not sure how she does it)..but she has serious issues mentally with worrying about what other kids think of her--she is only 11.

    However, it sounds like nerves, or avoidance to wanting to be in school.

    I've posted this a lot on forums, but Apple Cider vinegar always helps with:

    -acid reflux
    -blood pressure

    Look up Apple Cider vinegar cures

  • I had this issue as a child, now my child has it. Celiac Disease. You feel like you ate too much because bread makes you feel bloated, nausea, and overly full. However, you still feel heathy, active, and fine. Then all of a sudden you are nauseus and throwing up...then fine again. Have him tested. As a child the syptoms come and go. His symptoms may disappear and reappear when hes two years older. Thats what happened to me.
