[IP] rollercoaster levels and nausea

I feel *awful*, beyond awful today...

last night I woke up with a major low - so low that I couldn't get the food
in my mouth - wasn't fully aware of what was going on - even though I had
glucose tablets on my table for some reason I thought they were sugar-free
(yes, I swear to goodness that is what I thought).  So I ate a lot of
cereal, knowing that that spikes me fast. (yes, bad choice probably, but
hey, it worked)

Of course, I ate too much and knew this when I started to feel normal/had my
mind again.  So I set an alarm for an hour to get up test and bolus - I was
still shaky and didn't want to give anything yet.  I also didn't know how
low I had been because I was so "gotta get food" mindset that I didn't even
test.  The reason for the low was an overcorrection to a high earlier in the

So then I slept through the alarm, and of course wake up beyond high
(380!!!).  Now I am finally leveling out at 85, but...

I am so nauseous I feel like I cannot even stand up... has anyone else had
this after a rollercoaster day?  (278 -> beyond low -> 380 -> 85...)  Or do
I have another reason to be concerned, ie. getting sick or something?  No
