    'When' and 'clauses'?

    Hi,

    I have 3 clauses below in my sentence. I'm not sure whether they can be counted as independent or dependent and if I can use 'when' to connect them. Can someone help me with them please?

    My ordeal started shortly after arriving in Japan, when I drove to the hospital, when I felt nauseas.

    ***NOT A TEACHER***Ulysses, good morning. You might consider something like: My ordeal started shortly after arriving in Japan, when I had to drive to the hospital because I was feeling nauseated. Thank you.
