if you are in college, why not go to the medical center. They may be able to help. I know when I went, it was free to students and teachers.

It is possible that your blood sugar is low and the response is related to that but gone when you wake up a few hours later because your liver kicked in and filled the void. You really want to talk with your medical provider to share with them what is going on.

You can make sure you have a balanced snack before bed especially if you are already feeling hungry (which can be your body telling you it needs more fuel because of the activity of the day) to see if that prevents the early morning response.

I am hoping it is some weird hunger mechanism (I did just cut back on calories after adjusting my weight loss goals), or maybe a dream thing. I'm up in college right and my physician is still in my hometown, so I was hoping I could get some insight before trying to track down a new person here (my insurance severely limits my options in this area)..but if it persists I will definitely do that.

two things if this is happening right when you wake up. one, is it possible that this is coming from some weird dream? i know i have incorporated text message noises into my dreams and i've also dreamed about going through my daily routine. so it's not that odd if you were sick in your dream and needed to puke, but woke up a little disoriented and though it was happening for a few minutes, basically until you fully woke up and realized it was a dream.
the other thing is that for me, there is a point of hungry that feels exactly like a point where i need to puke. or rather that the light on the mental dashboard that lights up is the same one for hungry and need to puke. basically it's a something's up in your stomach notice. i find the hungry variant tends to happen when i'm not eating enough food close enough to bed. a plain snack generally takes care of it when it happens and eating more food closer to bedtime generally makes it not happen in the first place.

This is something that SP members can't really help with because there could be many reasons for it - medical and emotional, etc. etc. You are best to talk with your Dr about - then you can be properly assessed.

In the meantime, it MIGHT be helpful if you raise the head of your bed a little.

Good luck.

Hey everyone,

This used to happen to me a lot before (when I was actively losing weight), and it happened early this morning, so I thought I'd ask.

I went to bed a little hungry (I was in a healthy calorie/fat/etc. range according to my very recently updated nutrition tracker), and at about 6a this morning I woke up in almost a panic, certain I was about to vomit. My mouth was full of saliva, and I even rushed to the bathroom, but nothing happened. I calmed myself down and went back to sleep, and at 7a woke up fine.

This used to happen to me fairly frequently before, and I'm not sure what to do to keep it from happening, as its quite unpleasant. To clarify, I never actually vomit, I just wake up feeling like I need to. Anyone have any experience with this?
