Vomiting may be accompanied by other symptoms such as abdominal pain, fever, and diarrhea. The symptoms often provide clues to the cause of the vomiting. Vomiting may be treated in a variety of ways. Many cases require no treatment or stopping the food or medication causing the problem. Nausea can be controlled by drinking clear fluids and eating bland foods. Treatment for vomiting may include drinking fluids to avoid dehydration and taking medications to prevent or treat vomiting.

Most people think vomiting is controlled by the stomach, but a special area of your brain called the vomiting center is really in charge of throwing up. You can tell what triggers vomiting by where the vomiting center gets its information:
Stomach and intestines (infection, injury, or food irritation)
Inner ear (dizziness, motion sickness)
Brain (head injury, brain infections or tumors, migraine.
When the vomiting center senses problems such as those above, it initiates the vomiting sequence. The windpipe closes and the abdominal wall and diaphragm muscles tighten suddenly and forcefully. The stomach itself is limp, but when squeezed forcefully by the abdominal wall, it ejects any food or fluid up the esophagus and out.
