If you don't eat, your liver will make glucose for you. It may not know when to quit-that's why your numbers are high. This is called the Dawn effect when it happens at night, but your liver will kick out new glucose every time your brain and body need energy and the muscle reserve is exhausted. Your numbers will go up until your energy needs are met.The way to stop the process is to eat. Your body can make the energy molecule out of proteins, fat or carb. Carbs are easiest, that's why they shoot your blood sugar readings up so fast.
Nausea is not a hallmark of type 2 diabetes, but it is a hallmark of anxiety and it sounds like you are very anxious right about now.
Your fasting of 124 puts you in the pre-diabetic range, not full blown D. Your numbers should stabilize once you start to eat and exercise on a regular basis.
good luck and good health
