This is Dr. David

she needs to go to the ER for blood testing and IV fluids to help fix dehydration.

24 hours of severe vomiting can cause lots of loss fluids and dehydration and electrotyle imbalances such as low sodium, low potassium, and metabolic alkalosis.

the dizziness can be from severe dehydration.

she needs IV fluids to help bring her fluids back up.

you should call up an ambulance to bring her to the ER or take her there right away for blood tests and nausea medications
