That petition has been going around for a few months. We had shared it with the CVSA UK Facebook page, and ours as well. What a wonderful thing that would be to have happen.

There are several people that have been successful, but it has taken a lot. Some three appeals. Gather your info from drs and hospital visits that shows all the times and days of your struggles.

My triggers are lack of sleep and prolonged periods of anger.  I struggle with anger so much there are times I have to step away and let my husband discipline our children.  When I do that for a period of time, I can feel the episode starting.  

I am on gabapentin.  I notice when I stop it for awhile and start up again, my initial dose ALWAYS triggers an episode.  But once it is done, I don't get it again.  

Migraines will do it too.  Sometimes I wake up with the CVS and get the migraine afterwards.  [frown]

Thanks for sharing. Sometimes one person mentioning what sets them off can help someone else recognize theirs.

I'm pretty new to CVS but in reading about common triggers I know sleep is a major one for me, staying up too late or waking up too early.
I've also historically had issues with nausea and migraines in relation to menstruation, that has improved a lot with hormonal birth control.
Alcohol is another. I don't drink often because I will start puking after a few drinks.
Other than that I haven't pin pointed anything but I think just anything that would normally make me vomit puts me into an episode. I caught a stomach bug once that turned into a week long episode for me, and my fiance puked once and then felt nauseous the next day and was fine. There must have been something contagious if he caught it from me but for me it was a full blown episode! In that particular instance I also had a UTI and just moved into my very first apartment so who knows what the actual trigger was (or a combination)

Thank you KT.  All of this is helpful information.  An infection, a stressor such as a move, lack of sleep, hormonal influencers, migraine history, alcohol all are often mentioned.

A friend of mine will start vomiting if she has shell fish and alcohol.  She does not have CVS, she can eat shell fish and can drink alcohol but the combination leads to severe vomiting within half an hour.  It took her a bit to link the two things together.

It is hard to know from person to person if one trigger will set off a cycle or it needs to be two or more triggers.
