Strange nausea last night?

So last night around 11:15 or so I started feeling kind of nauseous, then not long after it hit me and all of a sudden I felt really sick. I went to the bathroom, but that seemed to make it worse. I sat up for a while, trying to calm myself with deep breathing, and I sucked on some mint. I thought for sure at any time I would throw up. It was a while later that I started feeling gradually feeling better. At 11:45, I went and layed back down on the couch, and half fell asleep. A little after midnight, I felt fine enough to go to bed, but still not completely normal. I slept ok, but it was a bit restful as I still felt slightly nauseous. At 4 am, I woke up feeling pretty sick again, so I went downstairs and layed on the couch. I felt pretty bad, not as bad as the first time but still thought I might throw up. Then I felt better; by that time I felt pretty much normal, went back to bed, slept fine, and just got up a little while ago. I no longer feel nauseous, I've eaten something, I'm now just tired from the lack of sleep. Anyway, I found this whole episode very strange, because even though I felt horrible I never got sick, and for hours it lingerered, then came back again strongly, and now it's gone. Any idea what this could have been?
Also-I had a headache and chills, but no fever

Could it be some kind of stomach bug or food poisoning which just made you nauseous but didn't make you to throw up?

I think that human body is the system which can have 'errors' like that at times.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

When I get sick like that I don't throw up either. It's usually a stomach bug or I ate something that irritated my stomach lining.

I would have thrown up & been done. I'd be worried about the diarrhea that often times follows such an event.

That happens to me sometimes if I eat something too late at night. But I usually do end up throwing up. Which sucks.

Could you be nervous about something?

I know whenever I get nervous, I have similar reactions. Often I'll feel pretty chill inside prior to an stress-inducing activity...but my body will be freakinggggg out.
So then I do some stress reducing activities [that didn't feel necessary! haha]and 'magically' feel better. haha

Sorry you didn't feel good!

Were you stressing out about something or just too hot?

I know little things like that can be symptoms of quick nausea. Or, it could even be a little stomach bug.

I had something kind of similar. My stomach felt bloated and all of a sudden, I had this bad lower abdominal cramps and loose stool. I shook it off as something to do with my new medication and went on with my day. The next day, I woke up and felt fine, ate something, and then got really shaky and felt like my head was swimming. I ate something and felt a little better. I went down to work on the treadmill as I thought it might be stress and drank some water, and then I had those terrible "I have to go NOW" cramps and diarrhea. After that, I was nauseous and felt like I could throw up. I also might have been running a fever. Three hours later, I was just fine, and the next day, I was perfectly okay.

I would guess something like stomach bug, or food poisoning type something too. Or you could have just had a weird episode of the flu. I was sitting on the couch one day months ago, and was had been fine when I woke up, was doing some stuff, then all of a sudden all my joints just started hurting really bad. No other symptoms, no fever, no tummy ache, nothing, just extremely sore like when I do have the flu. Lasted for most of the day, then the next day I was completely fine. Then two weeks later I actually did end up getting the full blown flu. Sometimes our bodies do really weird things.

Edit: is it possible at all that maybe you are pregnant? Sometimes hormones pregnancy and otherwise end up having really weird affects on our bodies. I know that for me the week before my period, I feel like I have a cold, not a bad one, but just generally under the weather, stuffy nose, little bit of a sore throat, etc, but as soon as I start, my body goes back to normal.I hope that you are okay. If you are really concerned, do you have a nurse hotline you could call, through insurance or the drs. office, or you can go see the doctor just to make sure.

There was a gastric bug making the rounds here a few months back. Try as I may to heave it up and get rid of the nausea, no dice. It lasted a couple of days. Every bite I ate put my innards into spasm. Same if I had a sip of water.
