Should I be worried? 10 year old, vomiting in the night, very lethargic today but no other obvious cause for concern.

111 for sure. Kids can go downhill VERY quick, sounds like they are already but don't risk it.

Is it going down with paracetamol? If so I'd assume a virus, make sure you are aware of red flags to look out for and just keep a close eye on them

Have you given paracetamol or nurofen yet? Make sure they are drinking.

For the very lethargic alone I would ring 111z

It wouldnt make me worried if those were the only symptoms and for that duration. I would be keeping an eye on their temperature, urine output etc and encouraging plenty of fluids. On its own it sounds like standard unwell child.

Thanks all. The high temp was scary because he was confused and frightened but once it was down he was ok. & almost back to normal today.
