Hello and thank you for your question. I’d be happy to assist you.

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

If she is unable to keep liquids down then she needs to be seen by a doctor at ER.

Otherwise try some self care measures-

Give her Gatorade.

Also OTC Emetrol/Meclizine and Motrin can be given.

Such ice cubes.

Also do gentle massage with muscle relaxant ointment on back of neck.

Monitor her blood pressure.

If her symptoms'll persist or get worse over the time then visit ER.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.
May I help you further?
