What Causes Vomiting Along With Pain In The Head And Neck?

My son, 13 years old, vomited at 12:30 am and then again at 4am. He had a temp of 99.9 F at that time. He has minimal appetite and is now complaining of head and neck pain. He has been drinking water and Gatorade and did eat 3-4 crackers thru the day. He has been taking ibuprofen q 6 hours. Should I seek medical care due to the neck and head pain?
