I am not sure if this is related to my MS or not but I have been ill with a stomach virus for 3 days.  I am finally over it I hope.  I've been getting nauseated and really hot during the evenings.  I feel like these are hot flashes. (I'm 38 but my mom finished early with her menopause age42).  So if I am getting any hot flashes and it is causing my core temp to rise would the effect of MS make me nauseated?  Today was the first day this week I actually ate breakfast and lunch.
 
I haven't gotten sick/thrown up yet.

Are you asking about 2 separate issues here -- a stomach virus,
 
and also hot flashes?
 
There are lots of "bugs" going around right now, and many of them can cause nausea and loss of appetite. And a fever.  The 3 days you describe feeling like that seem pretty typical.
 
Yes, hot flashes and other problems with your period can cause MS symptoms to flare up, too.  And sometimes cause you to feel like not eating.
 
Sometimes constipation can cause nausea, or other digestive problems related to having a slow-moving digestive system -- slow moving because there is an MS-related lesion somewhere affecting the system.

I am mainly concerned with the hot flashes and nausea.  Wondering if the hot flash is the cause of the nausea.  Or can you just feel nauseated off and on all day without vomiting?  I've heard that nausea can be an effect by MS.

Hot flashes can cause nausea. And nausea doesn't always lead to vomiting.

I do have MS. I get nauseated (nauseous?) when my bowels aren't working properly...which happens sometimes with some people with MS. That doesn't generally lead to vomiting. When I vomit, it is because I've also had an episode of esophogeal spasms, and if that happens while food is passing through the esophagus (which will trigger the spasm), any food "caught" in the spam will be ejected.

Thank you for the advice/info.  I may chalk it up to recovering from the stomach virus, but I do feel so much better today no more nausea.  I am going to the Doc tomorrow.  I still don't have much of an appetite and I have pains in my lower right abdominal area.  This came on later last week.  I so hope it isn't not appendicitis!!  I did manage to make it in to work today.
