Like many of you, I suffer following a night of heavy drinking. If I don't drink that much, I find that I have a hangover which consists of a headache and raised body temperature. However, when I drink a lot, I feel as if I have difficulty breathing, I vomit, I feel like I am dizzy and about to faint. My mind races and some strange thoughts become apparent. I feel faint and as if this horrible anxious nervous feeling will never end. I don't drink daily, nor do I drink during a specific time. If I go to watch sport or meet friends then I will drink. After reading many many threads, some people conclude that these feelings the day after are a sign of a dependency or a problem with alcohol whereas others conclude that it is just heightened alcohol due to the lack of minerals and sugar lost through sweating and increased urination brought on by the alcohol. To best describe my drinking habits, I tend to play drinking games with friends for fun and only occasionally. Other times I can be without alcohol for a week, two weeks etc. I do enjoy the odd beer with a football game, but the intention is never to get drunk. The same can be said with a glass of wine with a special meal (family or meeting new people).
I'd be very greatful to see if anyone else feels the same way as I do and what peoples thoughts are.
Many thanks and best of luck to anyone else to feels this way.
