I am suffering from neck pain from 9 years

My 9 year old daughter started complaining about neck pain 3 days ago. It was hurtring her to turn her head side to side and to look down. Now she is running a fever of about 101, has some vomiting and diareah, and is complaining of being lightheaded Is this maybe just a virus or should I be concerned that it may be something more serious?
