Cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS) is characterized by abrupt, repeated, sometimes prolonged episodes of severe vomiting. CVS commonly occurs during the night or early morning hours and may last for several hours or days. Cycles alternate with symptom-free periods. Patients with CVS often have a personal or family history of migraine.
The exact cause of CVS is unknown, but there appears to be a link between CVS and migraine headaches. In children, CVS can be triggered by emotional stress and excitement. Other triggers include infection, certain foods, menstruation and exhaustion.
