Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

symptom vomiting with loss of appetite and sleep disturbances could be sing of some infection and hepato-biliary disease could be the reason it may be hepatic infection, it may be viral disease, such case really demands several investigations, one more possibility of functional disorders the disease called "Anorexia Nervosa" it need to be ruled out too.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I woke up yesterday with a nauseous feeling, and didn t want to eat anything. Shortly after, I thought I was going to vomit, but it was just dry heaves, and my stomach felt a little better, but I still didn t want to eat anything, and didn t feel hungry. Shortly after THAT, it developed into diarrhea, and I ve had it for more than 24 hours--perhaps over 34. Also, I have felt tired, especially in my lower extremities, and I feel like I could sleep all day.
