What causes body chills followed by nausea and vomiting while sleeping?
Most likely seizures
Thank you for posting your query.
I have noted your symptoms, they are most probably due to complex partial seizures. Consciousness may or may not be lost, however, minor alteration in the consciousness level is usually noted.
EEG (electroencephalography) and MRI brain epilepsy protocol should be done for further evaluation.
Medications such as oxcarbazepine would help in preventing these episodes in the future. Consult your neurologist and get yourself evaluated.
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,

May occur in wake times also.
Thank you for getting back.
These episodes may occur in wake time also. However, the chances of that happening is low. This is because certain seizures most commonly occur during sleep.
