Cyclical vomiting syndrome is a highly unusual condition characterized by frequent bouts of vomiting and a feeling of malaise. This is a condition that mostly affects children, but people of all ages may be affected. Cyclical vomiting syndrome doesn’t have a definite cause; however, factors such as age and overall physical condition are thought to influence the chances of developing it. In this article, we review five symptoms and five causes of cyclical vomiting syndrome.
The most typical symptom of cyclical vomiting syndrome is, by far, nausea. Nausea is the feeling of having to expel the contents of the stomach by vomiting. A special mechanism in the brain triggers nausea. People affected by this condition can experience sudden and intense feelings of nausea, which may interrupt daily activities. Over the counter medication and home remedies may help alleviate symptoms. Nausea usually leads to vomiting, but this isn’t always the case. Symptoms persist for some time, before slowly disappearing. If you experience nausea that continues for a long time, consult your doctor.
