Yes but...: It is rare. I am presuming that you are referring to the syndrome seen in young children; dehydration and electrolyte abnormalities can lead to death in these patients if not treated, but this is rare in modern medicine.

Yes: If dehydration gets out of hand without adequate medical care - yes.

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.
