In brief: If with fever.

Some cases of jia (it is not RA in a child.
We now call it juvenile idiopathic arthritis. In some with a variant called "still's disease, " hectic high fevers can occur. Vomiting is not uncommon with high fevers. Otherwise, if your child is not having fevers, it could be medication. Other issues are then probably present!

In brief: Most likely not

The disease itself should not cause a significant amount of gastrointestinal complaints.
However, the medications that are used to treat the disease may cause GI problems which include nausea and vomiting.
