For the past few months I've found that if I eat a light supper I wake about 2-3 a.m. very nauseous - I need to have a BM and have dry heaves/vomiting and lots of gas. Why would an empty stomach cause me so many problems? I have lost 2 nights sleep this week alone from this problem! I have even tried eating cereal before bed. After the dry heaves I choke down some saltines just to make the nausea stop, but I am in no way hungry at the time. What causes this reaction in the body?
