When my daughter was about 2 she had a similar experience. We took her to the pediatrician and were told it was something "going around" and she would be fine. And she was. Then, a few months later it happened again. Same diagnosis, same result, and a few months later it happened again. Each episode was accompanied by high fever as well as vomiting. As she got a little older, say by the time she was 3 or so, the vomiting was reduced to a single event per episode. Always the pediatrician said it was merely a bug going around. I found another pediatrician, and told him I was not going to pay the bill if he told me it was a bug. Some instances might have been bugs, but many or most were preceded by some emotional outburst as well, typically when a visiting Grandmother or Aunt departed, or worse, when we would be visiting one of them and left - the symptoms would inevitably set in before we got home and she would vomit in the car.
Well, the new pediatrician listened and determined by testing her that she was allergic to milk. And, when we went back to almost each event, we recalled it was after a dinner, when she drank milk, and usually had some ice cream after she turned 2 years old (we just never gave our kids any sweets until they were two years old, and should have never let them have chips and junk until then either). The crying goodbye and so forth merely made the conditions for the allergic response more likely.
Once we adjusted her diet, no more fevers and no more vomiting. Sounds like you have a good pediatrician, and glad to hear all is well. Few things are worse than watching helplessly as your child goes through one of these events. Good luck, Jim
