My son is 13. Around a year ago he started getting food stuck in his throat while eating. He will run to the sink or toilet and throw up a lot of what he's eaten. This happens with liquids also. When he has an episode, he makes a sort of wheezing sound while he eats. This lasted until last Spring and then seemed to taper off. Now it's back with a vengeance; he's throwing up around ten times a day.
When it first began we suspected GERD, since his symptoms are GERD-like. He was given standard GERD medication, which didn't help. (I don't remember the drug, off hand.) He was seen by a pediatric gastroenterologist and had an upper endoscopy. At the same time his stomach was checked for ulcers. All of the tests were negative. They suggested that he see a psychologist, since the docs had no clue what his problem was. He's very bright and well adjusted. He is happy at school and is strong academically. I am somewhat skeptical of the stress angle, though his life is not without stress, mostly it's caused by this condition!
Any thoughts as to cause or treatment would be greatly appreciated, since it's stressful for all of us.
