Finally Dx with CVS

Recommended Posts

After 2 years of this insane naseua and vomitting, They finally dx me at Cleveland with CVS. I've been on everything you name it..Zofan, Phenergan....ect. Well On tues we are starting at home Iv treatments once a week of Anzemet and fluids. I have recently been on the ancement pills and no luck.

I am excited about this for two reasons 1. hopefully on a weekly regimen this may actually stay in my system 2. Bring on the fluids!!!!

But I've never had Anzemet in IV.. has anyone??

I'm really having some complications with all this vomitting. I've been on Coummidin for a year now due to my blood clots and I've been vomitting so much that there is often blood. I get really worried that if I can see it, what is going on on the inside of me. It has to be tearing me up.

Any advice would be great

I'm not sure about the med but it's certainly nice to have a diagnosis and plan. I believe CVS is aka Abdominal migraine so you might be interested in this website as there is a listing for NORD towards the bottom and they usually have some good info.

General Discussion

Cyclic vomiting syndrome is a rare digestive disorder that affects children and adults. This disorder is characterized by chronic nausea, vomiting, extreme fatigue, motion sickness, abdominal pain and, in some cases, dizziness (vertigo) that may last for hours to days. These episodes of symptoms seem to be similar in onset and duration for each affected individual. The exact cause of cyclic vomiting syndrome is not known.

mindy -

congrats on the diagnosis. i know that it isn't a magic answer, but also know what a relief it can be to have a name in terms of moving forward. as someone who has had lots of issues with nausea/vomiting in the past year, i'm curious as to what the diagnosis of CVS was/is based on? i know the symptom patterns, but is there any specific testing other than ruling other things out? such as if one has gastroparesis does that negate the possibility of CVS? just curious! hope your new plan gets things headed in a better direction for you....
