Hydration, meds: During a bout of vomiting, a patient might be treated with hydration and anti-emetic medication to decrease nausea and vomiting. No definitive treatment has been proven to be effective in clinical trials. However, because there is an association between cyclic vomiting and migraines, an anti-migraine medication is sometimes effectively used between bouts of vomiting.

Not entirely: The clinical presentation might be slightly different, especially in terms of triggers (more common with children) , they are not considered different conditions.

See your PCP: It will be the typical history of repeated attacks of nausea and vomiting lasting days to weeks followed by normal period for weeks to months and then again attacks. It has a strong association with migraines.
