A person in her 60's who feels "awful" and is vomiting, febrile, and has a "pounding" headache sounds like she needs a doctor... unless she suddenly starts feeling better each hour. If traveling in a foreign country, she may look online or ask the hotel front desk to see where to go for doctors who speak her language (such as English), or where the ER or hospital is, plus how to get there.
