Have lump on lower neck with vomiting, headache and diarrhea

My 37 year old sister called and said she woke up with a small knot on the back of her lower neck upper back. Its tender and she has been vomiting. She has a headache and diarrhea to. Vision is normal. No fever. No back injuries or history of a recent back injury.Should she seek a medical evaulation or wait 24 hours to rule out viral infection? Not sure if her lymph nodes are swollen. If she waits are there any symptoms that would strike a immediate concern?

welcome to healthcaremagic
it is better you get a medical check up without delay
a clinical examination will make out the complain you are talking about
it may be lymph node swelling if it is in posterior triangle of neck you are talking about clinical exam and investigations will help nreach a diagnosis and proper treatment
