My son has been puking on and off since the beginning of the year: Advice?

My two-year-old son has been puking randomly since the beginning of the year sometimes he has a fever with it other times he does not he pukes a few time, and it’s over well last night we took him to urgent care because this episode was way worse than before I’m making an appointment for him this week to get some tests, but urgent care does not know why he is throwing up with no other symptoms and sent us on our way we don’t know if its a virus that won’t go away a food allergy that we do not know about or other issues has anyone else ever experienced this with their little ones because I’m at a loss and so far no one has been able to help us figure this out

Make an appointment with an allergist

The first question I am asked at work if someone starts to vomit is when was their last bowel movement? Is it possible he could be backed up?

My daughter had the same exact symptoms and she was also two. They did a blood test to check for allergies. She ended up having a milk allergy and as soon as we stopped milk all symptoms were gone. She was also always constipated and that too went away and she’s never had a problem again. I hope you get some answers it’s always scary when your child is sick and you aren’t sure why.

Have jim tested for H-pylori.

Take him to a primary physician not an urgent care.

Make see a gastroenterologist and immunology/allergy.

Ask about his pancreas. My little brother did that and it was his pancreas. Idk what exactly it was because we were so young.

My daughter did the same think for about 6 months when she was a toddler. Turns out she was allergic to dairy

Is he pooping every day? My daughter was having issues with throwing up, turns out she was constipated.

I think it’s quite likely to be a food allergy, or something that upsets his stomach. My daughter knew she wasn’t supposed to drink soda but when we were visiting friends she would drink it when I wasn’t looking. She threw up every time she drank it. I didn’t keep it at our house for that reason.

My child has cyclic vomiting syndrome. It is a migraine of the stomach and he vomits for hours at a time.

This was happening to my daughter and found out she had a massive cyst inside her stomach that needed to be removed. It can also be his appendix

Start a diary of when its occurring and the circumstances. My friends son had this issue and it turns out they had mold under their carpet. Everytime he would play on the floor, he would be sick.

Take him to his pediatrician instead of urgent care. Let the doc know what’s going on. They’ll do tests and refer to GI if necessary.

My son had problems throwing up but that’s because his tonsils were way too big. He would only vomit after coughing a lot. After getting a tonsillectomy he stopped throwing up.

I don’t want to scare you at all just something to look into but my daughter did the exact same thing but only in the morning at 2 years old and was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Just follow up with her regular doctor and get him fully checked out.
