My 10 yr old son has been throwing up for months now.

My son has been throwing up for months now, more severely for the past 3. It's always about a mouthful, sometimes food sometimes just bile. He has been to different doctors and they can't seem to find a reason. We've had biopsies of his stomach, upper GI series, gastric emptying exam, and some allergy testing. They want to call it Rumination Syndrome but my son doesn't have a lot of stress in his life (besides an older sister!), loves school and has good friends. Could there be something that they're (I'm) missing? Reflux medicine doesn't help. He throws up several times a day, every day.
