I have felt sick during breastfeeding as well, and actually almost passed out a few times. I also posted under breastfeeding challenges.
I think that it is because of low iron. I am now taking an iron supplement and making sure that I am drinking a lot of water. I have and intense and sometimes very painful letdown (usually spraying multiple streams of milk everywhere) and wonder how much of it has to do with this as well.
Hope you are feeling better, and keep posting if you find out the solution.
