Why is my five-year-old vomiting constantly? And what do I do?

I know YANAD. Just looking for some hive support. We have seen pediatrician and all that, who seems less concerned than I am.
My son, 5yo, has been throwing up with increasing frequency over the past week. Started with once every other day for a few days, then couple times in one day, then a day off, then a couple times the next day, and now -- the past 36 hours -- it's pretty much everything he eats. He managed to keep crackers down this morning, the first meal in 36 hours. Otherwise practically everything -- including Pedialyte -- comes back up.
He had some better luck with a bit of liquid today too.
Other than that: zero symptoms. No fever. No loss of energy. Increasing appetite. He is back to "normal" as soon as he's done vomiting.
Any reasons I should be more or less concerned than the doctor or I am, respectively? Any other commentary? Thanks.
