A 10 year old boy keep wanting to vomit for a month. He saw a doctor, did a lung x-ray, no problem but one month later symptom still persists. He lost some weight since a month ago and has asthma. What could be some of the problem as the doctor said he’s fine. He doesn’t vomit, just gag. Sorry for report, slight edit as wronly wrote coughing just now.
