Dear Amanda
Yes, raisins and peanuts will help to raise your blood sugar levels and keep them constant for longer periods, thus combatting the nausea. Rye bread with cheese or peanut butter will also help. These symptoms really do point towards hypoglycaemia and the sooner your get to see a dietitian the better because you need to be given a diet that controls your blood sugar all the time (e.g. foods with a low glycaemic index (GI) and 6 or more small meals a day).
Hope this problem gets sorted out soon
