Only at night...

Help me,
I'm a 33yr old female. For about 7 years I've had these symptoms, enough is enough I need to figure it out.
7-12 times a year I wake up from a sound sleep feeling extremely nauseous. I try going back to sleep but end up getting worse so I head to the bathroom. I have to sit on the toilet because I end up with diarreah and a bucket in front of me cause I think I'll be sick. Along with this I feel very dizzy and like I'm going to faint. I also get HOT and break out into a sweat. This will last anywhere from 5minutes to an hour.
This last time I ended up in the ER because it lasted a lot longer and from my elbows down went completely numb. I couldn't feel the, at all and my hands cramped up and I couldn't move them, my feet were also starting to go numb.
Does this sounds familiar to anyone. Please help me!!!

Insulino depend DIabetes (type 1) would be my guess, does carbohydrates intake helps? Try to take 15 to 40 grams of carbs when you feel that way, 10 minutes later if you feel better, my guess is you need to see a doctor of the hormones I dont know the real name in english ("endocrinologue" in french).
Hope this helps.

I have exactly the same sypmtoms and I've been told is related to begining of diabetes type 2 and posible ulcer where you can manage it with diet, for me its when I don't eat regular meals for a day or two or if I skip a meal so at night when the bile should be doing its job of digestion at night, I can literally feel the burning sensation in my stomach that wakes me up and I get diarrhea like and end up throwing up at the same time,it then whe your blood sugar is too low and even your blood pressure drops that why you feel like fainting, also that happens to me when I eat a lot os spice or deepfried food STAY AWAY FROM THIS!  Eat regular meals without skipping them, and. Ut down on sodas too much sugar and too much acids going on for your stomach, specially overnight so far I still get it every now and then but it bc of my negligence of diet. I hope you get to feeling better.
