Could it be whooping cough? Even if he's vaccinated it doesn't give 100% protection. Me and my brother had it in our late teens, he coughed so hard he threw up after every meal, whereas I had the classic whooping sound with each coughing fit. But the cough lasts for a long time after the actual illness has gone- I had the cough 10-11 weeks and docs said I was fine too (they never actually said it was whooping cough but my brother was exposed and started with the cough then I caught it from him).

i literally could have written this post, my 16 month old is going through the exact same thing, every night for the past week nearly he's been sick coughing in his sleep we're both exhausted! i took him to the doctors this morning who wasn't even interested she listened to his chest and said to go back in 5 weeks if he's still ill - i was like what? 5 weeks my poor little boy is petrified every time he coughs now and i'm meant to do nothing for 5 weeks.

Oh- try steam inhalations ( bring them in the bathroom while you have a lovely hot shower) it sometimes helps soothe a cough.

My older son used to do that when he was a baby and had a cold. He would cough so hard he'd throw up a whole meal. The pediatrician told me that babies and small children just have very sensitive gag reflexes, and a hard cough can easily make them throw up. She told me to keep an eye out for fever or other signs of more serious illness, but not to worry too much about throwing up from coughing. obviously if it keeps happening though, more than a few days to a week, I would get your son checked again to see if they missed something.

It sounds like typical whooping cough symptoms, I would give nhs direct a call, and try and get in to see the doctor again x
