My 16 year old daughter has been vomiting for 2 months now with no end in sight. She was recently put in the hospital for 4 days because of this and they could not find anything wrong with her. They did a CT scan and endoscope. The doctor told me she had rumination syndrome. I did research on this syndrome and it does not sound like her. When she vomits it is brown and smells awful. She did this when she was 9 and it stopped when she was 13 and had her gallbladder removed. Now here we go again. The only abnormal test she had was high insulin levels and an ultrasound showed a fatty liver. Every doctor I bring her to runs a few test and then dismisses us. I have seen several ped gastro and an endo Am I bringing her to the wrong doctors. She is totally misrable. I know she is not making herself vomit. I am with her when she eats and go with her to the bathroom everytime she throws up.

  • Hello. I ranacross this post while searching for reasons why I am throwing up several timesdaily for 7 weeks now. Did they ever find out what was causing your daughter togo through this? Your help would be very much appreciated! Thanks!!
