teen boy with morning nausea and vomiting
I am writing on behalf of my son. He is almost 17 and has had issues with morning nausea and vomiting for several years. It comes and goes and lasts 3-5 days. It will wake him up in the morning for several days and he will either vomit (most often only once) or feel nauseous for an hour or so and then is perfectly fine the rest of the day. When it ends he is fine for several weeks or months before it starts again. He is otherwise very healthy and active although quite thin, even on the edge of being underweight. He normally has a good appetite except during these episodes when he seems to get full very quickly.
I am hoping for some insight on what could be causing this or how to help with it. I strongly believe it is NOT linked to stress (I have been doing a lot of online research and this has come up often) as he is a very confident person and not at all a worrier.
thanks so much for any help.
