This migraine syndrome causes recurrent attacks of intense nausea and vomiting, lasting anywhere between 1 hour and 10 days. These attacks often occur about one week apart with no symptoms between attacks and can be associated with paleness and lethargy as well. Generally, this form of migraine is experienced by children, but it can happen at any age. Cyclical vomiting syndrome is distinguished from other forms of nausea as it has no connection to gastrointestinal disease.
