Since being diagnosed with Cyclic vomiting, have you ever vomited once for any reason and it didn't start a cycle?

Recently I vomited from what I thought was motion sickness driving on some windy roads, and it started a cycle. 

I'm wondering if now any time I throw up for any reason, it will trigger a cycle.

Anxiety seems to be a huge factor in my cycles, so I'm not sure if any time I vomit the anxiety/fear of a cycle is what ends up starting it.

My daughter was able to tell a sick vomit from a CVS vomit.  Many with CVS will tend toward being car sick so maybe you could try one of the anti motion meds before venturing on those kinds of road trips.

Anxiety is a factor for many so you might be correct that the vomit caused you to increase your anxiousness which in turn might have been enough to trigger a cycle.  Do you have a medication that can help with anxiety?

I take **mg elavil daily and have *mg ativan for use when needed. 
I did take an ativan when I started to feel nauseous in the car, to maybe calm my thoughts of "oh no am I going to vomit" but it clearly didn't kick in in time.

It sounds like motion sickness to me. We use dramamine and sea bands, salty snacks.. try to BE the driver as a passenger has greater effects. Cool air..  Motion sickness is a trigger for my son, so we have to be careful.
