I'm 14. I went to bed at about 11:30 last night. I woke up at 1:05 am feeling severley nauseous and I had the shakes. I turned on the TV because it usually distracts me when I feel nauseous/sick. It lasted about 10 minutes until dying down and I fell asleep. That was it. I feel fine today except I have emtophobia (phobic of throwing up) so I'm kinda nervous I'm getting sick. I had a cold this week and a little bit right now (coughing). So is it my menstrual cycle? (I have not gotten it but I have had symptoms). Should I be worried I'm sick?
*PS I'm underweight for my age...but only by a little.
Welcome to the gastroenterology community! If this just happened this one time I don't think you have anything to worry about. If this continues to happen though, I would recommend that you see a doctor.
