my 2 year old throwing up everytime he has a coughing fit Normal?
my 2 yr old has had a nasty cough for weeks now and 4 days ago he couldnt keep anything down including liquids and constantly vomiting well hes now over that and eating fine but his cough has got that severe its causing him to vomit, even in his sleep i had the doc out who said his chest is clear but the cough sounds horrible and keeping him up all night and the vomiting is really worrying me anyone else been through this im scared he has something serious but 2 docs have said his chest is clear
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.
awww no way i swear some doctors P me off seriously, im so worried about him but dont want the docs at the hosp to say the same :/ i actually think its more than just a cough as hes had coughs and colds before but not to the extent of vomiting im also exhausted i was woke up last night to him vomiting in my hair bless him really is getting me down now has gone on for to long hope ur LO gets well soon hun x
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.
