5 year old vomits frequently, what could this be?

We noticed on 12/25/17 our son had thrown up after he played for a while. He had been running around all day, as well as eating so we associated it with that. A few days later it happened again so we had thought it was either a stomach virus or something

Answers:

Tell the doc you need to get him in sooner. If he can't accommodate, ask someone you know for a recommendation.

A sick child should not need to wait that long and especially with flying going around, which has not been good to kids.

I wouldn't wait. Hopefully not Reyes Syndrome. But, many people are catching the flu a second time in the safe season, so it's a possibility. Tamaflu can be administered if caught soon enough, which is a very good reason to try.

Fever is not a cancer symptom. I have no idea why someone would be stupid or ignorant enough to deliberately scare you like that. Allergies are possible, but fevers aren't an allergy symptom either. (However, allergies can make you more susceptible to viruses and bacterial infections.) You're seeing the doctor in four days. That should be soon enough. Possibly keep a food diary starting now, to see if it coincides with the symptoms.

There are lots of reasons for vomiting. Could be food allergies, could be that he has some type of stricture or mechanical issue that increases chance of vomiting, could be viral. It is very unlikely to be cancer, and people who throw out major diagnoses on a whim are just not people you need to be friends with. If he has a fever right now then he may indeed have a virus or something else going on, which may or may not be related to the original issue. My LO vomited regularly until we diagnosed his food allergies and started avoiding what he was allergic to. If this has been going on for weeks, then four more days is unlikely to make much difference. Try to pay attention to what he eats (or even better keep a record of it) and see if you see any pattern in the next few days. Good luck.

It might be food allergies. Make sure he stays hydrated and that his temp never goes higher than 102.

This sounds like a really good reason to make an appointment with the child's doctor.

Don't use the ER as suggested by someone else. The ER is for emergencies and something that has been ongoing for a few months is obviously not an emergency. Also, the ER will only make sure it isn't life threatening and then send you home with instructions to contact your regular doctor. The ER won't look for the cause of the problem. That is not what they do.

Just take him to the emergency room and they will conduct all the needed tests their

'a few days later' does not sound like a stomach bug. overstimulated ??? a visit to your doctor sure wouldn't hurt, tho.....
