Your child is suffering from Upper respiratory infection ,probably viral one ,being most common.Since following the illness she is unable to balance, can be because of generalized weakness due to decrease food intake or may be it is muscle weakness .You need to consult neurophysician to sort the difference between too.She is not eating as part of illness which will produce decrease apetite, other cause for vomiting may be secondary to gastritis due to decrease food intake. Dont worry consult neurologist / Pediateric neurologist . Bye
