Hope you're feeling better soon, that had to hurt.
I can't tolerate alcohol at all. When I was younger and I would go out w/ my friends on a Saturday night, I would have 1 drink, and just a cpl of sips of it to boot. The rest of the night I would drink Pepsi. The smell of the alcohol was a turn off. I never knew why I would have that reaction, nobody I knew had that reaction.
I basically gave up any kind of alcohol. Each yr on our anniversary, I would make a single drink for my DH and myself, then a glass of wine w/ Thanksgiving dinner. about 7yrs ago I went to make the anniversary drink, I made it so I knew how mild it would be. I took 1 sip, my face went bright red and I felt like I would fall. My DH grabbed me and laid me back on the couch. I thought I was going to be sick or die, and dying sounded pretty good at that moment. lol I haven't had a drink since then, that scared me to death.
It was yrs later when I first found the list of symptoms for FMS, it listed alcohol intolerance. I also have everything else on that stupid list that a woman can have.
I don't have pain meds, but I do take other meds that say 'Don't drink alcohol w/ this med', so I have 2 reasons not to drink.
I am glad you got out to have some fun w/ your friends, maybe next time just have a soda or a coffee. Feel better!!
God bless. Alice.
