Infant puking all of sudden, no fever, lost appetite, diarrhea. Could this really just be teething or something more serious?

My 21 month old son started off puking all of the sudden early Friday morning but had no fever . He then had lost his appetite and had diarrhea for about three days, we kept him hydrated. Its now Wednesday and he still doesn t have an appetite and is extremely clingy! Could this really just be teething or something more serious?
