Every few months I go through a period where I feel nauseous for a week or so. I'm not sure if there is a pattern. Does anyone else experience this? It comes about for no reason, like no one around me is ill. I'm just fine and then I'm not. Usually, eating makes me feel better, but only for a bit and then it all comes back. I never vomit or anything, but I have to lay down or I feel like I'm going to pass out. My skin is really hot to the touch (said by others) and I have no fever. My temp is actually 97.6. I always run lower for some reason, always have. Really weird.

I had this problem for the first few months after I switched to Adderall for EDS. What was it? I would forget to eat, and instead of getting hungry, I would become super nauseous. Weakness and/or lightheartedness also happened, because I would forget to drink and would become dehydrated. I had a hard time figuring it out, because sometimes I would have a regular schedule that ensured regular eating.
I kept a box of "emergency crackers" (for me, wheat crackers with low sodium/salt) and water in my bedroom at night and carried similar foods around with me--palatable, simple foods that settled my stomach and had high fiber, too.

Those symptoms sound similar to the ones I had when I tried to take nuvigil and Xyrem. Only I had it way worse and had to quit altogether. However, eating did calm the symptoms down; also herbal teas such as oat straw, and lemon balm were very soothing - you can get those at a local health food store I think.
Honestly, it sounds a lot like my husband. He's the one diagnosed with narcolepsy, but I've helped him out a lot since I can notice patterns he doesn't see. He would go through times when he would feel sick to his stomach but never actually got sick. His skin would be boiling hot sometimes and others he'd be like an icebox.
I did some research on-line this year and diagnosed him with celiac's disease. He had been to dozens of doctors over the years and now he finally knows what is really triggering his narcolepsy and migraines. If he eats gluten, I can tell within minutes. He gets really groggy and moody. He could never gain weight and was at 120 for a long time (6 ft tall) but after two months he's up to 143 lb!
If these feelings keep happening randomly, I'd get the blood test done for celiac. You'll need a referal from your GP to go to an allergist for the test. It has changed my husband's life (and mine too!) to finally know what to control in order to treat his narcolepsy and migraines.
