Cyclical vomiting syndrome

Everytime my daughter is due to get her period (16yrs.old) she
begins to vomit approx. 20x per day which lasts for 7 to 13 days. Becomes dehydrated, and hospitalized. Can't keep any food or drink down at all. Doctors are at a loss. All tests have been Neg.(brain MRI, Gyn. consult,upper GI,sonograms, blood work.) Any suggestions? Any ideas? Tried everything to stop the vomiting including Zofran. Nothing works.
Occurs the day before, or the day of her period. Obviously somehow tied into hormones. Plase help. I look forward to your reply.

Dear Phyllis,

It must be very frustrating, when the docs "are at a loss" to tell you how to solve your daughter's problem!

I urge you to get a SECOND OPINION by another GYNECOLOGIST, and an ENDOCRINOLOGIST (gland doc). Make sure these docs know all about PMS (Pre-Menstrual Syndrome).

Is your daughter maybe having hormonal migraines? Hormonal migraines can cause nausea. See a doc that is an EXPERT on MIGRAINE HEADACHES.

Also, maybe see a second GASTRO-enterologist, just in case there's a digestive problem, too.

Another thought is to see a very good acupuncturist. One acupuncture point that helps some with nausea is near the wrists. Ask the acupuncturist to show you exactly where P6 (pericardium 6) is located. It's on both arms, and has a calming effect too. This point can be gently pressed on, as an acupressure point, for a short time, from time to time. Don't continuously press on it.

Also, some find the herb/spice ginger helps stop nausea. (like ginger tea).

Good luck to you! Don't give up until you find the right docs to help your daughter!

Sincerely, Concerned lady

For anyone PREGNANT that may have read my message: DON'T use the ginger during early pregnancy. I've read that ginger can bring on a period, causing a miscarriage. Check with a very good herbalist about this.

You might also try the product shown at www.reliefband.com
It's available at many drugstores, and it does the acupressure for you.
