In brief: LowK migraine

No but if you vomit a lot low K may develop. More likely is that your low K is caused by Conn's Syndrome: Headache is a very common symptom. So if BP high or pee a lot at night come to my Yahoo group hyperaldosteronism at Yahoo.com. I also specialize in this so you can get my second opinion.

In brief: Maybe

If nausea is causing a decrease in appetite, then you might be taking in less potassium, and can potentially cause hypokalemia.
But on its own, nausea shouldn't cause hypokalemia.
