For the last week (on and off), my 7 year old son wakes up in the middle of the night to vomit. Some of it is undigested (but this averages about 5 hours after he ate dinner), then it it followed by vomiting mucus-some of it "bubbly". When he is vomiting the mucus, he occasionally burps and belches. He says it hurts in the abdominal area. No specific area-just all over (in the area under the belly button). He does not have a fever. When he wakes up in the morning, he is hungry and gets on with the day and is completely fine, is active, has an appetite, does not have any pain.Last November, he had a week long period where he was "backed up" (so to speak). The peditrician put him on a laxative which helped. He occasionally has a period every so many months where this happens. It is not the case now-his bowel movements are fine. I have added benefiber for children to some of his food and that has helped with thisituation. We dont eat alot of junk in our home, so I dont know why he would have this. He cant eat alot of fresh fruit however, due to seasonal allergies. He has many tree allergies and cant consume the fruits from those trees as it will cause his mouth to itch. This has been confirmed by our allergist. If anyone has any similar experiences, please let me know. We are going to the pediatrician today and will plan on seeing a ped. gastroenterologist as well as the allergist. (Im thinking food intolerance? or maybe acid reflux?)Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
