Brief Answer:
the ER sounds appropriate

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

uncontrolled vomiting is a very good reason to visit the ER. Not only for a diagnosis but also for assessment of your condition (particularly for dehydration) and perhaps for treatment.

I couldn't suggest any diagnoses from afar obviously but I can say that in most cases such symptoms are due to gastroenteritis. Other potential causes may include stomach issues (like peptic ulcer), esophageal issues (serious esophagitis or esophageal motility disorders), abdominal disorders (like cholecystitis, pancreatitis, etc) and even heart disorders. Clinical examination and testing may provide useful clues to help the doctor find the diagnosis.

Treatment for vomiting is also required as you may quickly end up with dehydration. Treatment will depend on the cause.

So in conclusion a visit to the ER is recommended.

I hope you find my comments helpful!
Kind Regards!
