If your wbc was 24000 the nausea & vomiting was accompanied by some inflammation or release of stress hormones. I assume you had a follow-up wbc to assure that it was normal & you have no hematology issues. The cause of your recurring N&V episodes may be elusive, but stress,anxiety, certain food reactions, recurrent gastritis,gall bladder dysfunction or medication effects come to mind.?GI consult
