Okay parents, anyone heard of this doozie?

History: my four year old has had three episodes approximately 4-5 weeks apart. She goes to bed normally then wakes up 6am'ish vomiting. Back and forth to the bathroom for 7-10 times to throw up. Then she is exhausted and sleeps till noon, understandeably eats pretty much nothin all day then next day back to normal. After her nap she is back to normal just a little "off."
She gets no fever, none of us, parents, little sister get sick. Took her in once but of course they say stomach flu like we are idiots.
So she should be getting this again in 4-5 weeks. And will post again if she does. I "found" this vomiting syndrome and it sounds like what we have going here. Any ideas, much appreciated!

signed, concerned mommy

I'd heard of something like this for fevers, but not for vomiting. Very interesting! Have you read this? cyclic vomiting syndrome - Bing Health

Be prepared for your doctor, (and 17 more after that!), to tell you you're crazy. BTDT!! Stick to your story, though. Keep a very detailed journal. Write down anything and everything that happened the day before (foods, drinks, activities, stressors, seasonal allergies, etc.), even if you think it's not important. Try to see either a gastrointerologist or an infectious disease doctor. You may even want to see neurology and/or endocrinology in case these episodes are being triggered by migraines or seizures.

I hope you get an answer and that it goes away sooner rather than later.
