Any connection between SPD and Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome?

I'm a psychological associate with a 21 yod, 14 yos, and 10 yos. All of my children show some signs of SPD, but the older 2 for sure would be diagnosable.


My sons both have Migraines/Abdominal Migraines (also known as Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome). I'm wondering if there is some kind of correlation between them . . . .

Anyone else noticing these issues together?

thanks!

My son has both as well
by: Moe

My son has SPD, cyclic vomiting, abdominal migraines, and Chiari Malformation. He was decompressed for Chiari at age 5 and is now 13. His cyclic vomiting and abdominal migraines stopped after a neurologist told us to start him on 75 mg of Butterbur a day. He's never gone this long without stomach pain or vomiting. It has be 3 months with no episodes. He also has other stuff wrong with him. One of the big ones is Eosinophilic Esophagitis. The doctors think he has a syndrome but don't know which one yet. I hope this helps someone. The Butterbur has been a godsend and can be bought at any vitamin shop.

7 YEAR OLD SON - SPD - SICK
by: Anonymous

In May, I am having my son tested for SPD. I notice that along with a lot of the symptoms of a seeker with SPD, he is always sick. Most of his illnesses are Migraines and vomitting. The other are respiratory. I have been seeking clarification to this as well.

Investigate Chiari Malformation
by: Deana

My daughter has SPD and has cyclic vomiting syndrome/migraines. 2 years ago she was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation after an MRI because of the migraines. She currently goes to OT and they have noticed a great deal of the patients with SPD and migraines have been diagnosed with Chiari. Chiari is a congenital condition where the brain doesn't fit in the skull resulting in pressure on the brain stem because the lower portion of the brain is descending into the cervical neck area.

Same question
by: Anonymous

I also have a 6 year old son who was diagnosed this year with Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome/abdominal migraines and now with a sensory processing disorder. I wonder as well if there is a connection with all of this! He also has horrible allergies and asthma as well. Too much going on for there not to be some connection there!!

I do!
by: Cody

My stepson was diagnosed with Autism around three years of age, years before I met his father, (somewhere on the spectrum) and within the last year, especially last few months (he is 10) has begun to have episodes of unexplained and abrupt episodes of vomiting usually at the home of his mother. His is a mild case, both with the vomiting and Autism (what I would consider much more close to Aspergers). The kicker here is my own son who is now 8 years old, started having severe migraines at age 2 years (he couldn't say his head hurt, just hours of sleepy vomiting), which I was told by docs was caused by and could only associate with my own observations with certain foods. He was born 'colicky' and had always been hypersensitive and hyper-reactive to tactile, auditory, ocular, and emotional stimulation. This I was told was just a 'tense' and 'high strung child'....

It won't allow me to write more here. But I will try to add another thread or if you like you can contact me via email, codyholewinski@yahoo.com
