It’s the morning after. You feel horrible. When will your hangover end?

Hangover causes

Hangovers are simply caused by drinking too much alcohol. It might make you feel better to know that some people report hangovers after drinking one to three drinks. But on the other hand, there are heavy drinkers out there that don’t get hung over at all. Although experts still don’t know officially what causes alcohol hangovers exactly, ten possible explanations for why you feel the hair of the dog include:

  1. acetaldehyde
  2. alcohol withdrawal
  3. dehydration and imbalance of electrolytes
  4. drug use
  5. gastrointestinal problems
  6. genetics
  7. low blood sugar
  8. methanol
  9. psychological traits
  10. sleep disturbance

When will this hangover end?

OK. Now a little wake up call. Hangovers exist for a reason: the hangover experience may deter us from future episodes of heavy drinking or intoxication. They are our body’s way of asking that we avoid binge drinking and a call for homeostasis, or balance. But when will they end?

Typically, a hangover will end within 24 hours.  Hangovers begin within several hours after you stop drinking, when blood alcohol concentration (BAC) falls. Symptoms of a hangover usually peak about the time BAC is zero and may continue for up to 24 hours thereafter. Most cases of hangover end several hours after 0 level BAC, though. This is for somewhat “normal” cases of over drinking, and a typical average. But hangovers can continue for a couple of days in more severe cases or in times when alcohol withdrawal occurs.

More severe cases of hangovers

Generally, the greater the quantity and length of time drinking, the more prevalent is the hangover. Some hangovers go on and on and can last for 72 hours, especially if you are mixing drinks, drinking low quality and less refined alcohol or drinking certain types of alcohol (brandy, red wine or whiskey all contain methanol).

How bad is your hangover?

Hangovers suck. But time will ease the symptoms of illness and discomfort. There are also a few hangover remedies that you might want to try to help reduce the severity of symptoms or shorten its duration. But keep in mind that most folk remedies for hangovers have not undergone clinical tests, and experts believe that conservative management of symptoms combined with time are your best bet for feeling better.

  1. Hey, when I drink alcohol the next day I don’t have horrible hangovers like most people but I get this stabbing pain in the top of my back that doesn’t go away and I lose my appetite and get dizzy sometimes (but no headaches or nausea) .. it lasts 3/4 days after drinking and I haven’t met anyone with the same issues.. is there any answer for this?

  2. Drank a bottle of wine last night and couldn’t sleep properly after that. Woke up early cos of a bad cold / allergy , upset stomach , dizziness and nausea.
    What the actual f**k ? Feeling like shit

  3. I have last 8 months on words hangover headache . i did all tests MRI and blooad and urine all are normal only…..
    8 months back one day drunken more beers compare to daily that day morning on words started headache tiil now is there. it will come only front head … currently using some medicine but now days headache is rare but front head fully feeling like tight band not able to concentrate anything… suggest me to quire this.

  4. Hi there I would like to know if my symptoms are alcohol poisoning please. I’m a classic binge drinker.. will drink non stop for hours before passing out with no memory of the night. The next day I will start to vomit around 9 am and will then vomitbevery 15 minutes for up to 8 hours. This means I’m normally severely dehydrated by the end of the day. Is this an allergy? Or a bad hangover? Tia

  5. I drunk a whole vodka bottle and the day after woke up drunk! And the day after that day start my heavy hangover with bad headache upset stomach and throwing up for another 2 days so it last with me for a whole week!

  6. I always get a rapid heartbeat the next day. So what do I do?..I buy more alcohol (vodka) to calm back down…A few days ago, I had to call an ambulance because I had an ache in my chest. (I was sober that day). My BP was 180/100….

  7. I got waste new year eve this year, and i had 3 drinks of champagne, 2 shots and a little bit of my mans, i dont drink i havent drink since a year ago , i lost alot of weight , when shpuld i feep better

  8. Hi . I had about 5 shots of tequila and a cup of margarita mix with vodka in it and a shot of fireball . I got sick once when I got home and now I just have a headache . It’s thursday now and this happened New Year’s Eve .the headache isn’t as bad but it’s still there

  9. It’s the next day after a night of drinking and I feel terrible.. I’m dizzy and nauseous and constantly throwing up.. not only that but I’m unable to hold down food is this normal?

  10. I was an heavy drinker, daily used to take. Yesterday and today i difnt as i want to stop this bad habbit. But i cant feel balancing, today noon onwards only took food. Evening my uneasness starts. But anyway i will stop this. How many days this type of hang over or craving will be there.

  11. I drank quite a bit on Tuesday night which was my first time drinking in about a month but my first time drinking as much as I had in about a year. I had a tall boy of twisted tea, a tall white seltzer, and then 2 mixed drinks. It’s currently Friday and I still don’t feel myself. I spent all of Wednesday violently puking every 10 minutes, I’ve had the worst pain in the pit of my stomach, and I’ve still yet to be able to really eat any food. Thursday I was just trying to recoup after puking all day Wednesday, but I’m just waking up on Friday and I still feel so nauseous and have stomach pains, not as painful as they were when all this started but I’m still so surprised I’m still hungover.

  12. I drank 12 beers on Saturday night and didnt stop vomiting until 4PM on Sunday. Ive never been so thirsty in my whole life. The worst feeling (besides the debilitating nausea and vomiting) is being so thirsty but unable to keep any fluids down. Never in my life will I EVER drink that much again. Even went so far as to call my doctor begging for some anti-nausea medicine.

    Another horrible thing was the heart burn. Id been puking so much that my throat was on fire from the stomach acid that had been repeatedly coming up my throat.

    Stay strong out there peeps!

  13. Hi.. so I am a freshman and highschool and I got peer pressured into drinking alcohol with some friends. I drank vodka and tequila, I took about 8 shots. I threw up all of my food later that night and I am feeling extremely dehydrated . This happened Saturday night and it is now Monday . I am still throwing up a bit and I feel tired and just nasty all over . Am I gonna be okay ? Also telling my parents is NOT an option

  14. Hangovers typically last 24-48 hours for people that are occasional binge drinkers. Occasionally if you have a severe episode of binge drinking it make take 4 or 5 days to feel back to normal.

    It’s very bad for your body when you binge drink. If you’re going to drink 10-15 drinks in a week it’s much better to spread it out over 7 days instead of doing it all in one sitting.

  15. How long will it last it has been here since Sunday I drunk red wine almost a whole bottle on an empty stomach then I ate however tht was Sunday it’s now Tuesday night my body is aching bad I feel fatigue nauseated but can’t throw up my head hurts how long will it last

  16. I was drinking Sunday red wine did not eat anything here it is Tuesday my body aches really bad I feel like I want to vomit but I can’t fatigue how long is this suppose to last

  17. Went out drinking last night, had around 6 beers, 3 ciders and a rum and coke. Most ive ever drank before and ive never felt so horrible. My head is absolutely throbbing, feel like im going to puke every 5 minutes, balance is extremely thrown off. This feeling has deffinetly thrown me off of alcohol. I cant wait till this wears off

    But Still like I feel Pressure in the count of my brain panicky at times hard to focus like should I be worried
    Never have I took so many shots/drank like this before
    How long will it last

  19. Last night I drank a pint sized can. I woke up feeling beyond sick. I threw up 5 times in a short time period and couldn’t keep anything down. I’m now just able to drink small bits of water occasionally. I have drank way more than this in the past and felt fine. Could I be so sick because of my small size or something else.

  20. Took me a week to feel more or less well again and 4 more days to fully recover. I think symptoms may vary from person to person (in my case it was headaches and loss of coordination for days). In my case genetics probably affected my alcohol tolerance and how well the liver breaks down the toxins. The headaches may also depend on the outside weather. Chronic drinking (and sometimes binge drinking) may affect the Cerebellum (part of the brain) which is responsible for coordination loss. I have also been hit on the head during my drinking. In my case it was probably an unlucky combination of all these things.

  21. Had about 20 shots of vodka and god knows how many glasses of rum and coke, been having difficulties breathing and staying awake for the past three days

  22. I have gotten VERY drunk on Friday evening (+some drinking the night before) to celebrate finals. We’ve mixed a lot of 30-40% ABV liquor (including dark). The next day I felt the normal hangover symptoms, on the second day I still had a headache as well as coordination/balance problems. On day 3 it has gotten better: I didn”t have any nausea or stomach ache since day 1, but the headache remained albeit a bit lighter, but I still had coordination problems. By the evening I thought it was gone, but when I woke up on day 4 (now) the headache returned again. It keeps leaving and returning in “waves”, usually disappearing by the evening, but always returning the next day. Some trouble with coordination also accompanies them. Are such headaches normal? I have heard that it may take a week before they are gone.

  23. I don’t drink often. Only when I’m on vacation. I went to the beach this past weekend and had all different kinds of mixed drinks. When I got back to the hotel I was using the bathroom and throwing up at the same time. It’s been 48 hours since my last drink. I’m super hot as if I have a fever and motion sickness like I’m about to pass out. I also only have one kidney Should I be considered?

  24. Last week 26th I am drinking more than one brand .my hangover started at 29 th. Still now. I am forgot something. What I am doing to release one week hangover?

  25. When ever i am drinking during evening i remain fresh even after 7/8 pegs of whiskey and feel slightly drunk but the next morning taste of my mouth gets change and i don’t like to eat any foods. Body becomes dumb and lazy with a severe hangover which remains for the entire day. How can i get rid of this issue.

  26. Ok, I am so glad to read these comments. I was beginning to get worried. It is Sunday morning, I am starting to feel “normal” again after a Wednesday night of what I would say an average social drinking night. I am almost 40, and have been a light drinker for almost a year. Light drinker- 2 beers, glass of wine a week maybe. I used to drink heavily for about 20 yrs and could recover within a day. I would drink every day. I have been on anti depressants, anxiety and adhd meds for 2 years. The recent hangover I had lasted 4 days. It is enough for me to say ok, my drinking days are over. I had about 6 beers maybe 7…. 4 days?? I used to drink 6 beers as a pre-gamer warm up. I hope this will help someone. I feel better after reading your posts. Thank you and F##k you Alcohol

  27. I currently am having a hangover right now. I’ve thrown up twice and I just feel really slow 😫 I’ve only had maybe two other hangovers from drinking but I’ve never really thrown up so this really sucks 😫😂 I’m kinda hungry but I’m scared I throw that up too

  28. Hi, I’m 17 and never had a hangover except 3 days ago, it was my older brother’s birthday party and he invited like 14 people with 3 bottles of vodka, I usually drink about 6 shots and walk home normally, but this time I didn’t know he mixed pure ethanol in the drink, so I drank about 6 shots like I always do, but I passed out badly and was throwing up all over the place, hopefully my brother’s girlfriend went and got some lemon juice from the store and gave it to me, felt better.. But it’s been already 3 days since that happened and my thinking and math skills are not like before(I’m a music student at the university so I need to think and have a clear mind) I can’t focus well on what I’m studying or reading, I’ve read on the internet that alcohol kills brain cells, is it right? Does alcohol lower your IQ over time?(I realized that weed does and stopped smoking it forever), will my focusing and thinking skills get back to normal again? Btw, I only drink every 4 or 5 months, not a big fan of drugs.

  29. I usually only take two to four shots of vodka on the weekends at parties but every time I drink I feel like throwing up for a whole week after?
    I took a couple sober weeks a while ago too and I only feel sick for the week after I drink so I know it’s the alcohol but I don’t get any other symptoms at all and after about a week I stop feeling like I need to throw up and I’m good.
    Is this bad or am I just a major lightweight?

  30. I still feel awful 6 days after a night out drinking. I suffer from generalized anxiety disorders, I take meds once in a while and only drink occassionaly. I believe that hangovers can last as much as 72hrs the very longest. I take meds when i cant handle my anxiety but can’t really figure out whether another underlining problem causing body weakness, loss of appetite, confusion and extreme anxiety.

  31. I’m a terrible binge drinker, I can’t have just one drink I’ll drink until I’m practically unconscious.
    On Christmas Eve I had half bottle red wine, 3 double white rums, a bottle of Champagne and pretty sure I drank beer too. I woke up very early in some kind of psychosis which lasted 2 hours. I feel so depressed and pathetic. I made an absolute show of myself in front of my family and friends. I just don’t know why I’m putting myself at such risks mentally and physically to feel this bad. 😞

  32. Hi-I drank too much, had a couple of shots of chocolate tequila the day before yesterday. Still lying in bed after 24hours with the worst hangover, feeling awful. Anything I can do?

  33. I am 21 and drank for the first time 24 hours ago. I went pretty had for my first time and had 7 rum and cokes (not small ones). It’s been over 24 hours and I’m still vomiting and can’t keep any food down. I’m trying to drink water and Gatorade but I can barely keep it down if that. It’s any of this normal.

  34. i was wondering if i had a hangover last week and gotten over it and now its a new week i only had 1 wine cooler and but now im sick again with worse symptoms than before what does this mean i drink occassionally and never in take much at all any suggestons?

  35. I use to love drinking. I’d go out every Thursday to Sunday in college and get extremely intoxicated. I’d recover over a night of sleep and go do it again. Now I graduated college and go out with friends occasionally. I have slowly started to notice that every time I drink I get heart flutters and increased anxiety as I become more jittery followed by diarrhea the next 3 days. I thought it was maybe beer and switched to straight liquor on the rocks and decided to get drunk one more time Everything was fine until I woke up the next morning when I felt brain fog and out of touch with reality feeling. Then continued with the heart flutters, increased anxiety (almost like a sense of impending doom), ringing in ears, fuzzy vision, & diarrhea. I’m not sure how my body has completely changed within a year and I feel like drinking isn’t even worth it anymore. Maybe it was the change in doses of my levothyroxine. Anyone else having similar or exact symptoms and have an answer?

  36. I went out Thursday evening and had two long island iced tea s and a shot of whiskey and it’s Saturday three in the afternoon and I still feel terrible can’t eat , headache, stomach ache,thing is I’m immune suppressed, transplant patient and I never drink, I have personal training session tomorrow I just started 6 weeks ago,do you think I should go tomorrow, even if I feel bad still??

  37. I drink and I can’t stop because I get really bad hangover I go for month to finally stop I suffer and I end up on the street I’ve been drinking for 5years without stopping everyday first thing in the morning I get a whiskey and by the end of the I’ll be black out

  38. I didn’t drink much at all last night I had about 4 drinks I didn’t feel that drunk and I stopped drinking at about 11/11:30pm it’s now 7pm the next day and I’ve started feeling sick why is this?

  39. After a night of drinking I make it a point to get up at a decent hour, eat something healthy and go for a run. Sweating it out helps me feel better sooner.

  40. So I’m 18 and decided to buy cheap burnetts vodka and had been mixing it with gotorade and soda and in one night I downed basically the whole bottle I’ve felt awful for two days now can you explain why?

  41. I’m on my second day of a horrible hangover. I finally stopped vomiting and am able to keep water down. I have eaten very little, slept very little. Sweating profusely. The doctor told me my body cannot take any more, I agree. I am a binge drinker and have been at it for years. I believe I’ve met my match.

  42. I’m going through my first hangover and I feel like dying. On top of that, I got the flu so I have no idea if the symptoms are from flu or drinking

    1. Hi Dj. Can someone take you to the hospital? Doctors can give you an IV that will rehydrate you and help you recover faster. They might even give you some other medication to help out.

  43. I drank 500 ml of beer on Monday for the first time. I couldn’t sleep well that night. The next day my body pains. On Tuesday I woke a little well. Because I thought I had good sleep. On the evening of Tuesday, I got headache , really bad headache, I am posting this on today( Sunday). I still can’t recover from headache. Please suggest some recovery tips.
    Thanks.
    Sunil

  44. my hangovers have always been quite bad because i usually drink alot, usually i get itchy and feeling of being dirty needing to shower to scrub your skin but it not helping and my heart going to fast , weak and tired and no appetite, sick feeling in the tummy and dizzy,, funny thing to me is that i never get a headache that i can remember anyway, most ppl get a headache its the classic hangover symptom ,

  45. Drank a lot for my 22nd birthday. I was very drunk puked once. Nearly 3 days later I still feel off. Stomach is acting weird, consistent headache, not myself. Sleep has been off. What should I do. Hosipptal?

  46. Hi I had about 3 glasses of wine and a gin 12 hours ago and I slept for a little while and since then I’ve not slept . Ive had about 3 pints of water and food and my head is so sore I feel sick I have the runs I am shivering my heart rate is high I feel dizzy when I move . Is this a hangover and when will it end ? 🙁 it’s really frightening me and I just don’t know what to do with myself I’ve just been lying here for hours checking g my pulse incase I die

  47. Last night I got drunk for the first time. I only had 3bottles. But now it’s 8hours after and I feel like where ever I move I’m going to be sick but nothing comes out…??

  48. Ughhh!I drank alot today blacked out woke up and started puken my brains out,5 throwups & 3 hours later my belly is just started to return to its natural state,Thank god hangovers are hell.

  49. Thanks… Well yes I did drink a lot.. This is my third day feeling horrible… The first 2 days I throwing up a lot today I feel a little better but I have a horrible pain at the right side of my stomach (up) I’ve to get help. I can barely walk for the pain and when I bend down it’s the only the pain is gone only for minute. I am very hungry buy I can’t eat.I didn’t pay my ensurens.Thenks.

  50. I drank way too much last night. I started at about 6pm and stopped at about 1:30am. I literally feel like I am going to die. My heart is racing (maybe due to my anxiety), super nauseous/throwing up, strange headache and I’m very shaky. I drank a ton of Captain Morgan and jagger bombs and hardly any water. I keep drinking water right now but it’s not helping at all. I’m afraid I am going to die 🙁

  51. It’s normal to be throwing up for a day or two after a long bender. Make sure you keep drinking. Pedialyte and Gatorade help keep you hydrated with the electrolytes. Even if you throw up you’re still getting some hydration.

    Feeling sad and lonely and depressed comes along with a hangover. Try taking a break from the booze for a bit. Get some exercise.

  52. Hi just been on a 3 bender in Sydney.
    Last night (Sunday) I downed a bottle of wine before I went out
    Then had several jägers and Jameson’s out in town
    Now monday evening I can even have a glass of water without chucking it back up.
    I often go out in drinking but never usually wine. Have I got alcohol poisoning or have I just gotta man it up?

  53. Last night i drank for the first tome and bit was too much this feeling I’m in ill never ever drink alcohol again !everrrrrrr!

  54. I just drank for my first time last night and got wasted…. I didn’t know the filling of being drunk so I tried it. I puked last night quite a bit and this morning feel very sick to my stomach and have pain in my lower stomach…. is this normal? Its Ben probably 24 hours and I am not sure what to do…

  55. To answer the last two questions. Yes it’s very common to be feeling bad even a week or two after a really bad drinking bout. Anxiety, depression, and panic attacks can start up or get worse after a bad hangover.

    And feeling bad for four days after drinking 9 drinks isn’t uncommon, especially if you are young and don’t typically drink that much. Other folks can drink that much daily and not get hangovers.

    Keep hydrated and if you still feel anxious, depressed or unwell then consider discussing with your doctor. There’s some meds that you can take to help with. Anxiety and Depression.

  56. Hi i am 18 college student i had some drinks on sunday night we were drinking till monday morning i had some 5-6 peg of whisky and 2-3 pints of beer.now still after 4 days i am having dizziness and weakness iam not in a normal state still.but day by day i am recovering so is it normal of 4 days plz help me

  58. Hi, is it possible to for the brain to be damage after a serious hangover?
    The situation has became from bad to worse, it has been 2 years after that , and my mind just kinda blank out very often after that and often feels giddiness this year which I can hardly keep me eyes open. I did went to consult a neurologist and cat scan was done, was only diagnosed with migraine. I have no idea how to cure this problem at all, I have tried consulting chinese physicians as well.

  59. I sometimes experience massive anxiety that sometimes leads into panic attacts…. 24 hours later Im still very weak and sick feeling!

  60. I drank 3 days ago and i woke up not remembering anything, I’ve been feeling nauseous constantly since then and I don’t know if is caused by the drinking

  62. I had a few to many a couple of nights ago. I drank about 9 beers and some 6 shots of jack daniels and thats it. But i didnt hydrate myself. I didnt eat. I.didnt do anything else but consume alcohol. This was friday night and it is now sunday afternoon. Last night was one of the worst feelings i have ever experienced. I was completely restless, the room was spinning and i had a severe case of heartburn. It was so intense that i cried like a baby for 30 minutes. I finally realized that in order to even feel slightly better i was going to need to throw up anything i had in my stomach. This lasted from 1,:30 am to 7 am. Constantly puking in writheing pain..i was hoping that i would feel alot.better by now but i only.feel slightly better. I am 100℅ DONE with alcphol. I just cant waito get back tp notmal

  63. two nights ago i blacked out for the first time and was told that during the course of the night i seemed to pass out/not be able to control my limbs. they trued taking me to the hospital but i resisted and instead my friends just brought me home. i had a lot to drink, I’m not sure how much since i was playing drinking games, and i know its probably the shots that caused this. its now two days later and i have been unable to eat without wanting to throw up and I’ve felt pretty constantly nauseas, however i slept pretty well last night. is this normal for blacking out and do you have any tips on if i should try to eat if I’m not hungry? (p.s. I’m not drinking again for a long time or maybe ever. haven’t decided.) thank you

  64. I saw my boyfriend yesterday and we decided to drink. I had 5 shots of ciroc and one shot of henessy. I really don’t remembered what happened after the shot of henessy. I woke up at 5am and puked then I had class I thought I was ok until I went outside in the heat to switch buildings. As soon as I got inside I tried to find a bathroom. But it was too late I puked on the floor this was at 1pm it is now 9pm and i still feel a little nausea I’ve been drinking water and eating salads and drinking vitamin water I also have a really bad headache

  65. my friend and I did a lot of shots of whiskey 36 hours ago and I’m still feeling nauseous and having stomach pain. what will help and when will it end

  66. I’m currently going through the worst hangover of my life. I was good this morning but as the day went on it got worse. It’s Monday and the alcohol drinking took place Saturday. My stomach is killing me. No headache just the nausea. I just want to feel better

  67. I’ve had a few beers and vodka shots before but I’ve never actually been drunk, over the course of 3 days I drank 1 and a half bottles of jack and on the third day I got so drunk I could hardly walk and I was sick, that’
    Was Sunday night and it’s now Wednesday afternoon the symptoms have died down but I’m still not really feeling like myself, my guess is that I’m not used to getting drunk????

  68. Went out drinking Friday and Saturday. It’s now Tuesday morning and i still feel horrific. I can’t concentrate, and I snap at everyone who asks me a simple question. Only words to describe this is that i feel brain dead. I also wonder have i upset anyone when i was drinking, and this eats away at me.

  69. Alcohol got involved last night, not my first time and it wasn’t as much as I used to be able to drink. I didn’t get so drunk I thought I was going to puke last night, I stopped right before that point I think. But since I woke up today I have been super nauseous. I even threw up my dinner. Every time I even take a sip of a drink my stomach rolls painfully. Could this be a stomach bug mixed in? I don’t know, I’ve only ever had one other hangover and all it was was a headache.

  70. Si I’ve just got off a 3 day bender after catching up with mates and I’m still hungover……did I mention that was 3 days ago though. I can’t eat, can’t sleep and my kidneys are aching. I forced myself to drink lots of water only to spew it up. I watched my brother in law have a beer last night and I spewed up. My cat breathed on my face and guess what a spewed up. I’m seriously considering never drinking again.

  71. I dank a lot of beer one my then the next morning I had to get up early for work and I felt fine the whole entire day now the day after I feel very dizzy and throwing up loss of appetite and unable to hold any food down

  72. Drank for my first time last night almost been 24 hours I still feel like liking I remember the whole night and I didn’t have a headache or any other hangover symptoms just puking how could that be when there was people who drank way less got hungover but didn’t puke?? How do I subside the nausea naturally and why is this?

  73. Beyond methanol, being poison… it must be made clear… ethanol is the primary part of alcoholic beverages. It is not the source of a hangover… unless it is consumed with its siblings… propanol, butanol, pentanol and all of the carbon structures that compose alcohol. These are called fusel oils. Its something you have to Google if you want answers. I distilled ethanol to remove these contaminants, the effects of the product gave no hangover. Also very little if any effects typical of alcohol. Basically the byproduct gets you drunk and the ethanol is more or less a digestible version to allow the poison to pass through…. this is by no means a solution as it doesn’t make you want to drink it habitually. Its like the problem isnt a good idea to try to solve. I would know.

  74. Monday night me and my cousin drank half a bottle of fireball and then a couple of beers. I have my experience with getting drunk and have drank wayyyyy more than this before of the same alcohol and even more so and never woke up with a hangover until this morning. My headache went away but I’m still really nauseous and frequently throwing up and I’m running a fever and it’s been almost 24 hours.

  75. hi
    went drinking on Saturday night mixed whisky and wine but am still feeling terrible no appetite, feeling awful in the stomach, terrible headache i.feel like throwing up but can its 72 hours now .is this normal?

  76. Hi last week on Saturday I drank quite a lot of alcohol (most of them were mixed in with soda etc) and of course the next day I had the worst hangover ever, it was my first one too. Ever since last Sunday I’ve been waking up with nausea and I don’t know whether it is to do with the hangover or is it something else?

  77. I have a hangover right now going into 48 hours. I didn’t know this was possible. I have horrible symptoms and at first thought I might have alcohol poisoning. This is the worst hnagover I’ve ever had.

  78. I usually don’t drink very much , but last week I over did it for myself. I had about eight shots of vodka and maybe two beers which I immediately regretted the next day since I usually only drink maybe two shots and am done for the night. It’s been about 5 days since that day and I still feel waves of nausea and I don’t know what to do about it anymore.

  79. It’s been almost 48 hours since I drank and my head still hurts, I’ve had 12 hours of sleep and I’m still tired. What can I do?

  80. This my first hangover and was wondering when it might be over. My drink was a screwdriver and I had 7 with 2 of the 7 having double the vodka. I have felt okay on and off today. I don’t drink often so I’m new to this hangover stuff. My dad says I should be okay by tomorrow morning.

Take this from somebody that has hangovers all the time thanks for this blog I too get hangovers that last three to 4 days or more if your a binge drinker like me don’t drink all the time but when I do its 25 30 drinks.alcohol shrinks your brain and is a dehydrat I’ve found pain killers only tylenol to realy help with a bad hangover.note hair of the dog bad idea makes matters worse trust me I’ve tried I’ll be 42 and still find that dreaded hangover to feel like your going to die and guess what you could.any benzos will be a godsend wait it out.if your going to drink we have to pay the price AA is a great thing my friend actually 3 people I know have died.after they woke up without any alcohol can put your nervous system into severe shock drinking alcohol like this can have serious effects on your health in a very short time compared to someone who is a casual drinker.just my two.cents

  92. Yesterday I was heavily drunk for the very first time. I’m 15(16 this year) and I didn’t even plan on drinking when I was with my friends but it just kinda happened. I can’t remember a lot of the night but I feel very weird. I didn’t vomit once a just feel a little out of place. I hope I’ll feel better soon. I really did drink some heavy stuff and forgot that the alcohol kicks in later and just uff. Life lesson learned I guess. I hope I’ll feel better soon. Right now I feel like I’m going to be feeling like this forever since I drunk from Friday to Saturday and now it’s Sunday and I still feel very weird and tired. Will this end soon?

  93. My name is Peter from south Africa , and I’ve started drinking in 2012 I don’t consume a lot of alcohol, can drinking about 6 to 8 440ml cans but the hangover can last for about 3 days,i don’t eat when I drink, because I vomit alot, I can drink about 6 litters of water the following day, but still the alcohol won’t go away. I drink once every 2 weeks because that’s when get a day off from work.

  94. Man, me and my bud where drinking together we had a full bottle of triple sec, now i am living in my bathroom. First hangover and its absolutely terrible. Definitely wont be drinking for a while

  95. I’ve been an off-again on-again heavy, binge drinker for many years. After I turned 30, I could feel the hangovers much more. At 35 I had my first hangover that lasted nearly 72 hours. I had extreme shortness of, and shallow breath, the first experience of a needle and pin feeling on my skin, excessive sweating, and inability to eat. I threw up water.
    I could not stand. I was still off kilter on Monday at work. It wasn’t until that afternoon I could eat and by Tuesday I was at 99% “recovered”. I had a big meal and began working out again on Wednesday.
    I now take pharmaceutical psychological meds for depressive alcoholics.

  96. New years day 2016, went out last night. Think I’m dying. I remember pre drinking and I had half a bottle of mango vodka, then I drank alot of double vodkas in the first club, I remember walking into the second club but after that it’s all blank, I can’t remember a thing, all I know is that I embarrassed myself infront of a few friends, go me! I left the club as 6am and its now 3:19am the next night and I am still not okay. Hoping it’ll go soon, good luck to everyone experiencing hangovers. You can get through this!

  97. Here’s a look at the top 12 hangover remedies:
    1. Sprite. A new study, conducted by a team of Chinese scientists, found that Sprite was the best way to help get rid of the effects of a hangover. According to the study, Sprite does the trick because of its ability to break down acetaldehyde, a metabolite of ethanol.
    2. Bananas. While you were drinking, a lot of potassium drained from your body. Eating a banana bursting with potassium will give you some much-needed nutrients.
    3. Sport drinks. These are a great way to replace fluids as well as electrolytes and glucose.
    4. Exercise. The endorphins released during exercise could boost your mood and burning off a few calories may ease your guilt about how much you drank.
    5. Honey, lemon and hot water. Easy to swallow, this beverage replenishes fluids and sugars lost to a hangover.
    6. Pain Medication. Ease a pounding head with a pill or two, but stick to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (or NSAIDs, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen), not acetaminophen (Tylenol).
    7. Soup, toast or rice. Food might not be the first thing on your mind, but it is needed for energy. Start off slowly with mild, easy-to-digest foods such as plain toast, rice or clear soup.
    8. Ice. Put an ice compress on your aching head. Place crushed iced in a plastic bag, wrap in a dry towel and apply it to where it hurts.
    9. Juice. Juice, especially freshly squeezed orange juice, will help raise your blood sugar levels and help ease some of your hangover symptoms.
    10. Coffee. Caffeine can both treat and cause headaches and migraines, so this one is a personal preference. But if you do down a cup, be sure to drink water, too, since studies suggest caffeine causes dehydration.
    11. Vitamins. Studies have found that vitamins don’t necessarily do anything for a hangover, but staying healthy with a multivitamin daily may help curb some effects of the hangover.
    12. Prevention. Try to drink responsibly. Limit your drinks to about one every hour. Eat before you drink and try to follow the rule of consuming one alcoholic drink and then one glass of water.

First of all I’m not pretty sure if it’s a hungover symptom since I still feel dizzy after 6 days of last time I drank, I drank like 6 glasses and one shot for the last drinking session in a week full of night drinking. I went to GP doctor and she found nothing related to ear and throat and did laborotary tests and and everything was great. I hope I can Fonda cure in this place

  108. Is it possible to get drunk drinking 2 glass of wine. It might sound funny but it did happen to me yesterday.And as usual my hangover in next day. The unusual part is last time i drank 2 bottle of beer n i was just fine.so is this hangover n being drunk different everytime and why! I exactly don’t know when to stop drinking.

  109. Hey, I had about 14 shots of vodka in the course of 2 hours and a beer bong and blacked out. Woke up still kind of intoxicated and threw up food. It’s now been 36 hours and the nausea hasn’t subsidded but I can keep down small amounts of liquid and crackers. What do I do?

  110. heyy,

    I got really drunk about 6 days ago and I’ve been feeling dizzy/ headache/ tired ever since. I really dont understand why I’m feeling this way. I’ve drank lots of water. I’ve eaten lots of bananas and other healthy meals but the headache won’t go away. Does this still have somehing to do with the drinking I did on sundag evening or is it somehing else? I really don’t know what to do. This never happens.

  111. I went to drink with a friend on sat. I didn’t eat the whole day expect for the morning with 3 drinks I got very drunk before that I just had finished my medication amoxillin for my cough I finished 3 before. Well after drinking I still don’t feel the same anymore I feel more slow and tired is that normal

  112. Last Saturday night I have got drunk with my class at a hotel this was my first time just really getting drunk like this I mixed brown liquor with clear liquor and it is now Wednesday and I still feel drunk and dizzy in the head I don’t know wats wrong

  113. I’m 15 years old and I went to my first party about 4 days ago. I’m not sure how much I drank but what I remember I had a full bottle of vodka, some jack Daniels, some captain Morgans and a Palm Bay. I don’t remember anything I did during the party and it’s been 4 days and I’m still hungover and I feel drunk and high. I don’t know what to do.

  114. I don’t usually get hangovers, but when I do, they are horrible. It’s been about 20 hours since my last drink and I am still shaking and feeling like I am going to vomit. I was doing shots of vodka on an empty stomach. I was a bitch to my husband and he is so hurt and mad that he isn’t talking to me. I don’t blame him. I am beginning to see that I have a problem. I can go without alcohol for a while, but then I pick up the shot glass. My husband drinks every day, but rarely ever is drunk or obnoxious.

  115. I drank for the first time last night because my friends had a Halloween party. Well I drank one mikes and a half fifth of UV blue. I I’m 5’8 135 pounds. Its been 17 hours I’ve drank. I’ve got chills, head ache, and throwing up. How much longer.

  116. I through up for 14hrs straight due to a hangover and notice that the side of my back hurts. Is that normal. Like it hurts certain ways I lye down when I breath cough ect.

  117. I was at this wicked party on Saturday night … drank way too many vodka-redbulls (5 or 6 I think)… I blacked out around 3 AM & my friend dropped me off home & I slept the whole day .. Once I woke up, I was feeling dizzy and hungover but that was normal. What was not normal was after sleeping off that night & sleeping allright, I woke up Monday morning still feeling dizzy. That continued all day and I kept myself hydrated… was able to eat food normally …. Got better through the day and by night was alllright. But same thing happened Tuesday morning. & now it is Wednesday … same problem.. dizzy especially when I sit down but other wise am allright … able to eat, go to the gym, etc … I am not sure what up with the dizziness but am worried! Its been more than 72 hours now!

  118. Today is Monday and i went to a party at my boyfriend’s house on Griday. I drank way too much and ended up getting alcohol poisoning. Every so often i would have a raging stomach cramp and a few minutes later I would puke, and my body temperature dropped so I was constantly cold. I think I had about four or five blankets around me. And even though I wasn’t drunk, walking was such a struggle because I would just wobble and fall. I didn’t go to the hospital, which is probably the best thing you should do in a situation like that. I was vomitting all day and my boyfriend took care of me, making me drink some water every half hour or so to rehydrate me, even though I would just keep vomitting whatever I took in. When the vomitting period became less frequent, he made me eat like half a cracker each time i drank water. It was a long day, but I pulled through. I’ve never even had a hangover before so that was a big jump, because I could handle drinking a heavier amount than most. Now the two days after, I just feel like I have a hangover, which still doesn’t feel too great. my head is pounding, my stomach hurts, I might have a raging cramp once or twice within the past two days. Not fun. I’m not gonna overestimate the amount I can take anymore, That’s for sure.

  119. Hi I’ve had this problem for a wile now recently I’ve been diognoise with chronic anxiety and every time I drink alcohol I get hangovers lasting 4 days not being sick or feeling sick just this strange I’ll tired feeling doesn’t matter if I drink 2 beers or 20 I feel like this every time I had bad hangover s in the past but recently it’s been unbearable does any one else ever feel like this

  120. Last night I went out drinking with my friends. I had a couple well drinks and then about 3 shots, I don’t remember much after that, but it’s normal because I have a bad memory. I got home and puked a lot, went to bed and woke up with a horrible headache and stomach ache. It’s now 6pm and I am still throwing up. I can barely hold down water.

  121. So, I got very drunk Saturday night. Like, I took approximately 12-15 shots worth of alcohol drunk. This is only the second time I’ve ever been drunk, but just like last time I’m still feeling nauseous 2 days later. Is that normal?

  122. I have a hangover. But I do not drink. But I do like to drink ice tea and milk and pop and lemonade and drinks like that. But I do not drink pop very often. But I do like to eat grill cheese and peanut better but I do not eat raw food. And I do not chew. And I like food is not good for you. But I do eat fruit if my mom push me to eat it. But I do like banana ok? So what should I do to get rid of my hang over? And when it go’s away how long will it take?
    From, Carla

  123. Hi don’t know if this website still works I was drinking on Friday and my hangover is still here I’m not vomiting I just have have this strange I’ll feeling I suffer from anxiety since Friday I just keep shaking I take citilampram and don’t if that has anything to do with it

  124. I have been under extreme emotional stress and decided to try to ease my nerves (anxiety) with 6 beers; which literally I passed out and not that I drink that often; but I have drank more and felt fine in the past. Before I drank, I was not eating well nor able to do things I normally would; almost like depression; but not the typical depression but the kind that I have no energy, no interest, no sleep, and everyone has seen that I am very slow; my voice even slurs; when do not drink; and I cannot concentrate or walk steady. I know this cannot be 6 beers that drank; but all if it combined worries me that if I cannot at least get rid of this headache; I am not going to live with it.

  125. I drank Tuesday night. Woke up with the worst headache and stomach pains on Wednesday morning. Puked all of Wednesday and some of Thursday morning before I went to the hospital where they put fluids and anti nausea medicine in me. But my headache has not even for a second subsided. Itsnow sSaturday and I still can’t move my head without crying or feeling the need to throw up. Am I sick or still hungover? I don’t know what to do but I am miserable.

  126. Hey i took 8 shots of tequila at least but didnt feel no nasty headache hangover altho the od thing is that its been 13 hours since i woke up and im still feeling the same as i did in the morning i relax it goes away i talk or walk a bit i feel it again its just a slight buzz its relaxing but i dont like it and its worrying me

  127. So today is Monday and Saturday night I got so drunk I ended up makeing out with this guy like 100 times but along with being drunk we were smoking the green and I still feel like a piece of crap that’s been dragged behind someone’s car while they went 150 down a dirt road and on top of all that I have a really messed up sleeping pattern! Yay for me.

  128. I got really drunk off of mixed Coke and Jim Beam and maybe a single shot of Patron (can’t remember), I then had unprotected sex with a my boyfriend. I’m having a pregnancy scare and I can’t tell whether I’m pregnant, hungover or just super paranoid. Never drinking again!

  129. Hey, I drank way too much last night thinking I’d be fine. But I woke up feeling super hung over. I was wondering if there were possible symptoms that would suggest something worse, or that mean I should see a doctor

  130. Hi
    I rarely ever drink I have a 1 year old little girl, but Saturday night 6/27/2015 I went out for a friend of mines bachelorette party and drank a little too much I got sick and threw up. Now it’s 7/1/2015 and my stomach is still kind of torn up and feeling weird. Is that normal?

    1. Hi Kylei. Stomach upset from alcohol drinking shouldn’t last for 5 days. Are you drinking enough fluids to prevent dehydration? I’d suggest you go to the local pharmacy and ask the pharmacists what you can do to help the symptoms.

  131. Hello, a week ago I went to a party and binge drank. I drank a bottle of wine, half a bottle of champagne and half a mickey (375ml bottle) of vodka. This is the most ive ever drank. I managed to climb into bed and when I awoke the next morning I felt awful but not a hang over awful as I do not get hangovers. I felt awful due to my eye sight just seeming odd, my head is fuzzy, im extremely lethargic, tired, all i want to do is sleep, im constantly hot, im often dazing off or loosing focus, my eyes are really playing weird. Ive been like this for a week now. I thought it would go away but it hasn’t seemed to and I am now becoming concerned. Not sure what I should do or what I am experiencing. Any help is appriciated.

  132. Currently going through hangover right now. Yesterday was terrible. I am a hevy sleeper and my own stomach woke me up. I thought it was only a headache but it wasn’t soon after I thought that, that I was puking. I puked 13 times yesterday. I feel amazing compared to what I felt like yesterday. But I am still sensitive to light, a lot of movement, and the thought of food makes me queezy. This hangover is from 4 four lokos downed in 1 hour. I am not a drinker and I don’t see myself drinking for a very long time.

  133. Nice advice but I don’t like it when reports think that assuming that the person needs a “wake up call”. Psychologically speaking even if a person isn’t an alcoholic and only drank once in a while it is known that everyone is aware of hangovers. So this “wake up call” talk is rather pretentious and naïve. And if the person is an alcoholic there is more to the psychology of it than to make the assumption that this “wake up call” is something to throw at them. As we learned in school both alcoholics or people that just party once in a while both know that hangovers are bad and that damage is done to the human body. So I find this article a little pretentious. But I do agree that they shouldn’t drink but I would take a more educated and mature approach than to tell someone “I told ya so”.

  134. Hello. I had my bachelorette party this past weekend and so did my fiance. On Saturday night, I saw videos of him getting a lap dance, which I had asked that he not do. I was already pretty drunk as we had been drinking since 8 am, and it was now 7:30 PM, but I made the terrible decision to continue to drink. I drank (mixes of everything) until 2:30 AM. I fell right asleep. At around 8 or 9 am I woke up and started throwing up with nothing coming out. I tried having water, but it would not stay down. The entire day I tried to eat or drink nothing would stay down. I didn’t have a headache, but I was nauseous and could not stop throwing up any water or food that I tried to put into my system. I got emetrol and the first few times threw it up, but then finally got some down around 8 PM on Sunday. Once that settled, I was able to drink water and eat food. I had upwards of 10 glasses of water and some food. It is now Thursday – 5 days after I stupidly decided to binge drink like a crazy person, and my stomach is still upset. I am eating and drinking a lot of water, but I still feel sick to my stomach and am often having feelings of gagging or throwing up. I have not thrown up since Sunday, but the feelings are still there. What do I do at this point? Isn’t 5 days a little long? I have never had a hangover prior to this, so I really don’t know what is typical.

  135. My son drunk a 70.Cl bottle of whiskey. Just can’t stop being sick
    bringing up bile and green also sore throat since 7 AM this morning
    Permanently reaching what can I do to help him. It’s now 10.45am.
    Kind regards. Pam.

  136. Quit drinking almost 11 weeks ago. Then last week had about a bottle of champagne and two bottles of red over the next 12 hours. Still feel hungover 7 days later. Is it possible??

  137. so my friends and I drank beer, vodka, and hard liquore in my basement alone. They were fine but I was not. After about and hour and a half of “fun and games” I threw up. They gave me a bath then put me to bed. Then I woke up early in the morning and threw up. Then every hour I would throw up for the whole next day. After I threw up I felt better but then in an hour the cycle would start again. DONT DRINK KIDS

  138. Went to the beach and got way too drunk.. When I woke up I’m sure I was still intoxicated and later that night it hit me.. Threw up 8 times and I still feel sick

  139. i had a lot of captain morgan I have been feeling like poop . cant drink nothing because soon enough I throw it up , I also barely been able to take medicine witch is also making me want to throw up … I cant even look at food . it has been 2 days an the symptoms are not as bad but still having the erge to throw up when I drink or eat anything .. what do you think it is ? dehydration ?

  140. Oh boy, my worst hangover was about four years ago (19 yrs ols) when I was stationed (USAF) in Germany…I got really drunk and fell down some stairs. When my friends found me they called an ambulance upon testing my BAC it was .34…needless to say I was blacked out and woke up in the hospital. I was there about three days and was pretty embarrassed because I had to apologize to all my friends. I also did a substance abuse class and abstained from alcohol for about a year until I moved to a new duty station in GA. I do know that since this incident I can still drink but don’t really feel a buzz, I just black out. Is there a way for me to feel alcohol again?

  141. I had two pints of coors in the space of 5 hours and can not remember anything and have felt ill for three days can anyone tell me why this might be?

  142. Hi, I drunk a lot the other night just beer didn’t have much to eat and I woke up the next morning with pain in the stomach and it would feel like I want to throw up but I didn’t and it hasn’t gone away and it’s 2-3days later, does anyone know what it is and how to get rid of it?

  143. It’s Tuesday afternoon. I drank Saturday night…I’m still very sick. I feel feverish and cold. Sick to my stomach very lethargic and a headache. Hoping tomorrow is better. I have never had a hangover this long?

  144. I haven’t ate since Saturday and thought the hair of the dog would help me get an appetite Sunday. I WAS WRONG! It is now Tuesday and I still haven’t been able to eat. Part of me wonders if I wasn’t slipped something Saturday night as I did black out and can usually handle my boos pretty well. Don”t think I want to drink ever again after this one and am also a bit scared that I’m still feeling better.

  145. Hi Katie. Can someone drive you to the doctor’s office? You are dehydrated and need a saline infusion. It will help you regain your energy levels and you’ll feel much better soon after. And yes, you need help to stop doing this to yourself. Good luck!

  146. Hello, so its day 2 and I’m still feeling crappy. I had only 3 drinks (bloddy ceasers home made) and the next morning I was soooo sick I threw up about 30 times in that one day my throat is killing me I’ve actually burnt my throat from my stomach acid. ( I was drinking so much water too between trowing up) the past two days now I have been feeling so thirsty no matter how much water I drink I’m still really thirsty. I haven’t been able to eat for 2 days I’m dying please give some advice this happens every time I drink and I always limit myself to 3 drinks a night I’m about to quit drinking all together because of this its torture 🙁

    Thanks!

  147. I had a hangover a few days ago and I thought it was over but I just woke up from a nap and I still have a headache and I feel like being sick. Why? Its been four days since the hangover unless I am still having symptoms.

  148. I’m not a alcohol loving person but last sunday night I had a 11 shots of tequila with my friends. They forced me and I drink all. But it’s been almost 5 days and I’m feeling something wrong I mean like I’m not fully recovered or something…looks like my mind is not fresh or something. I don’t know what is happening with me can you please let me know?

  149. Hi Lea. It’s a reaction to the great amount of vodka you drank. It probably got your stomach upset and you’ll be feeling ok soon. However, if the feeling persists, you should be examined by a doctor.

  150. I drank roughly about half a litre of vodka on Friday and was sick about half an hour after the last measure, i spent all of Saturday being sick and it was green an bile like, sunday i still had an uneasy stomach and again today. Is this normal? I drink roughly once a month and is usually a binge type night

  151. People are so ignorant. Alcohol is a poison. And your body was poisoned so that’s the reason why you’re having a hangover in the first place.

  152. On new years I had a glass of Champagne and 4shots of Vodka. My headache started before I got sober and now 27hours later I still have a ridiculous headache. No other symptoms though, just the pain. Can’t sleep longer than 3hours as well? Is this normal?

  153. I went to a party yesterday and drank a 75cl bottle of vodka and I can’t stop throwing up and when I get up to walk I fall over and am really light headed

  154. I only drank 1 and a half bottles of cider 750ml each and I used to hate alcohol, I’m 15 and 85 kg but after 24 hours I still have a mega headache and can’t really walk well… I only started having a pint of beer or a normal sized bottle of cider 2 months ago does this affect me??

  155. I rarely drink anymore, have not had anything to drink (alcohol) in nearly a year. Day after Christmas, the 26th, drank a half a pint of Southern Comfort, and on top of that drank, a 12-pack of beer. Started drinking around Noon, until about 5 P.M, in which at that time, passed out. Tolerance for alcohol was very low since I’ve stopped drinking. Extremely nauseated, starting around 5 A.M., the 27th, day after. Through out the entire day, bed-ridden with chills and extreme nausea. Time of this posting is 07:30 A.M., the 28th, the following day. Still, extremely nauseated. Drinking vast amounts of water to hopefully alleviate some of the side effects. The extreme nausea is the only effect that is still troubling me.

  156. Hi on Saturday night I drunk about 4 glasses of red wine its not the expensive kind the cheap one I heard that you’re suppose to drink wine slow but I did not I took big sips and frequently I went to sleep around 3 that morning feeling fine my boyfriend woke me up around almost 5 in the morning and when I woke I was feeling naseaus couldn’t really go to sleep and I had diarrhea I took a zofran which settled my stomach but now today is Monday and I’m still feeling a little sluggish I woke up for work and I was feeling a little sick I’m able to eat but no appetite really and still a little bit of diarrhea is this normal effects of drinking red wine?

  157. Hi, went out sat night and drank too much. Can’t remember getting to bed but woke up on my back covered in sick. Had a very lucky escape as I had clearly been sick only back and could have been a totally different outcome. Never been sick from alcohol before and still feel awful like almost still drunk but it’s been nearly 24 hours. Shakey, cold hot flushes with nausea, very tired, very thirsty. I’ve never had a hangover like this before. My friend said it could be mild alcohol posioning. If it is, does anyone have any tips on what to do?

  158. Hello, I’m 16 years old and two nights ago I drank big amount of alcohol (beer and vodka), and now I generally feel fine, but still I feel a bit vertigo, and i really afraid that as a result from the alcohol I have constant brain damage. its been like a day and a half and to nights that i slept fine and I still feel dizziness, and that something in my brain isn’t functioning well, even though I don’t have any problem reading and understanding. What should i do? anyway, I know ill never drink alcohol again…

  159. Hi Bailey. Can you keep some light food and fluids down? Your energy level will probably be bad for a few days, but you’ll get right back on your feet as soon as you start eating something.

  160. Okay so I’m a 18 year old female and I weigh about 120 pounds. I drink but I never have gotten out of hand like I did last night. I had 13 shots of tequila and I’ve thrown up 6 times since this morning and now I’m dry heaving. How long will this last?

  161. Hi. I had a party exactly 30 hours ago. I smoked two heavy puffs of weed and a lot of hookah. And the worst part – I mixed up drinks. This was the first time I had been tasted a drink. And I had 6 shots of vodka out of which 4 were neat and 2 were mixed with coca cola. And I had a glass of beer. I threw up a few hours later. It’s been 24 hours and my hangover has still not gone. I also have that guilt of drinking
    Can it make it worse? Can you please help me out? Please. I just wanna get out if this.

  162. I drank too much Saturday night but not more than others at the party. I passed out around 4 am and didn’t get out of bed for the next 27 hours (except to run to the bathroom). I finally forced myself up Monday morning but felt hungover all day and now it’s Wednesday morning and I still have a headache, dizziness, strained eyes and feel tired. The same thing happened a few months ago where my hangover lasted close to a week. I don’t drink normally…..only socially at parties etc. and as I’ve gotten older (I’m 51) I get hungover from even a small amount of alcohol. My friends from the party who drank as much as I did got up the next day and painted bedrooms and basically had normal days. Could it be that it lowers my immune system and I’m feeling these symptoms because I’ve caught a virus or something? My husband keeps telling me that there is no way there is any alcohol left in my system so it can’t be the hangover still.

  163. Ok so I Drank about 6 to 7 beers on thanksgiving. …lately I’ve noticed I’ve been drinking every other day (about 6 to 7 beers)…it’s Saturday and still feel dismount and palpitations, I feel like I’m going to have an anxiety attack…what should I do

  164. Okay so i had some vodka on saturday.. i cant really tell the amount since we bought a bottle and poured some in a glass and mixed it with coke or sprite.. we just poured a bit into the glass.. it wasnt much.. i drank like three of those. In the end up i ended up throwing up and just lpsing control. I hadnt drank water thay day or the day before at all. The next day at home i jist kept craving food and i was really drowsy. I figured the craving was my bodys way of telling me it needed fpod to absorb the remaining alcohol and i figured the whole drowsiness was because of travel and lack of sleep. But its been pretty much three days now and i still feep drowsy and tired. I feel out of it like im sick. But i dont have a headache and i dont feel nauseaus and i dont feel like i need to throw up. I just feel out of it. Like nothing seems clear. I dont know how to explain it. Also i had a whole cigrt after my last shot. And ive been on an emotional roller coaster. I cant seem to get a hold on myself. What is going on? Is it possible to stay kinda drunk for a few days or something? And im still craving food!ive been eating accordingly too.

  165. Hi Heather. Your stomack is upset from the drinking, which is not dangerous and will pass. However, you are at risk of dehydration from the vomiting and not holding fulids down. Do you have anyone to take you to the ER, you will feel much better after a saline infusion.

  166. I drank a lot last night and now I have the worst hangover. My handss are shaking and I feel very nauseous but I haven’t thrown up.

  167. i started drinking at 11 pm & I’ve been vomiting off & on for the past 7 hours it’s almost 7 a.m. & I still feel like vomiting & I can’t hold anything down. the fact of ingesting anti of makes me sick PLEASE HELP I FEEL AWFUL & I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO

  168. On Saturday, I went to a club and because I knew I would drink, I ate a large dinner before going out that night. I mixed drinks but did not drink much (2 shots of fireball whiskey, 1 Yeager & tonic, & 1 rum & coke). That night I vomited & continued to vomit on Sunday-all day. I am no longer vomiting but since Monday I have nausea, lightheadedness, and extreme fatigue to the point of having to call in sick from work. It is now Thursday and I am still experiencing these symptoms almost a week later. Can a hangover last this long?

  169. I drank whiskey for the first time and I’m still hung over from Saturday night my stomach feels weird and head still feels light and mixed drinks with gin and Jack Daniels help?

  170. Tuesdaynight I drank about a half liter of bourbon with diet coke mixer, Wednesday I was so horribly nausea and headache could never throw up, was down all day, today Thursday better but still some head ache and a couple of times today have had burning after urination, have been a drinker for years and never this bad of hangover, I turned 56 this summer and it seems every year hangovers get worse, I think it’s time to quit.

  171. Hi, I had a few mixed drinks on Saturday night, then threw up before bed. I have drank more in the past and was very confused as to why I was sick. I would up Sunday morning (yesterday) and threw up multiple times until I had the dry heaves because there was nothing left in my system. I have felt nauseous since Sunday morning and now it is Monday morning (more then 24 hours have past). What should I do?

  172. I used to drink about 8-12 cans of cider every night and be ok the next day however I recently (2 weeks ago) quit drinking on weekdays and packed in the fags, joined the gym and felt fab!!! A couple of days ago I went to pub to celebrate with a friend and had 6 pints and 5 fags!! I woke up yesterday feeling like death and had a very lethargic day feeling queezy with a banging headache, ate loads drunk plenty water went to bed early and I’ve woke this morning and my head is still pounding!! Any ideas?? Is it cause I quit for 2weels and my body doesn’t like that I had a binge!! Lol Urrrggghhh x

  173. I was drinking last night to kinda release stress and got carried away …..I ended up throwing up and this morning I wake up, and my stomach is killing me and I can barrel stand the light. Also I have random bumps and bruises from dribbling around !! Worst decision I’ve made. I new my limit an I broke my own promise not to drink over it !!

  174. Hi Tia. What did you drink? Do you take any medications? If so, it might be the mix of the two that made you feel sick. Othervise…a food posioning, perhaps?!

  175. Hi. Myex husband is an alcoholic. He says is on a controlled detox…which he as been on since June.. i.e 4 months now. He keeps messing up which is why he is still detoxing. He says he is drinking 300 ml of vodca everyday at this point. My concern is him taking our children in his car with him….so I gave bought a breathalyzer to check his blood alcohol levels. Today he arrived 11am having claimed to only gave drink 250ml of vodca last night. His blood alcohol level was 0.55mg at 11.30am. I would let him take the children in his car so he walked them to the park instead. 3 hours later he had a blood alcohol level of .25mg. I still felt ready about him driving the children but he said he was below the legal driving limit and was therefore fine. He was however getting ratty and his mood was clearly irritable. I feel confused by what do in this situation. My children’s safety is the most important thing. How see are they if he is under the legal limit of 0.35mg but clearly was drinking large amounts the night before? Should I be taking more into consideration than just the breathalyzer readout? I think he is lying to me about him much he is drinking because his high reading at midday the next day makes me think he must have drunk more than 250ml the night before. He has admitted to drinking more tan a litre in the recent past..everyday. any advice can you give me about alcohol metabolism and his stare of mind for driving will be greatly appreciated. Thank you

  176. I work in a pub and didnt finish until 9pm. I had three drinks and had to go home. I was violently sick, shaking and headache. I went to sleep and didnt wake up once whch is weird for me as i wake 3-4 times a night. This morning i am even worse. Any suggestions?

  177. So I’m 15 and I got really I drank half a bottle of wild Turkey some crown and smoked some weed in the same night I feel like shit and have been throwning up for 3 days what do I do?

  178. I am still having a hangover I drank a mixture of drinks all 35% or more alcohol volume…it was my first time ever getting drunk I have bruises on my head neck and back from falling and I took a few falls in a HOT TUB I’m still cleaning my throw up from my carpet and couches it was fun til I blacked out.

  179. When I binge drink for a week or two, even with just beer, my hangover lasts 4 to 5 days. The severity decreases over time, but the symptoms still suck until about the 5 days of not drinking at all. Until then, no appetite (but I force myself to eat and drink a lot of water), my brain doesn’t work well, I feel introverted and avoid seeing people, I turn off my phone, I feel depressed, I don’t sleep well and wake up in cold sweats, my eyes hurt, I don’t feel like doing anything at all except lay in bed. I realize I need help with my drinking problem in general, but what might make a hangover last that long? I didn’t get them like this when I was younger. I get annual health exams and everything comes out fine.

  180. I took my scoot up for a ride and met my friend for lunch around noon on Sunday. I drank Leo beer all afternoon about 8 bothies then went to the candy store and drank until 12 so had a 12 hour session. I think about 20 bottles anyway I’ve had a hangover for 96 hours – never never again

I had a terrible hang Over the all day, surprisingly its day 5 and I still feel dizzy and losing concentration at work especially in the morning.

  183. If it helps I only drank a shot of whipped cream vodka, a glass of vanilla vodka with coke, a shot of red wine, a glass of pickle juice and vodka and then three and a half of jack Daniels cherry limeade flavor.. But I know for a fact the I was not drunk, I was only buzzed. The next morning I felt like I had to vomit but I never did. I drank Saturday night and like I said it is now Tuesday and I still have the feeling that I need to vomit.

  184. I got buzzed for the first time Saturday. But the next day I felt like I was going to vomit everywhere but, I have heard this is very common. But it is now Tuesday and I still feel like I am going to vomit. I don’t know why though. Please if you know what could possibly be wrong can you tell me!!

  185. I’ve had this hang over for 4 hours now wanting to puke, had saltines crackers and water , hangover anxiety, nasuea, dizziness, worked up courage drink wkiskey last night.. vow to never drink again. I lay multiple places outside, trying to comfort myself. I can’t sleep and I’m uncomfortable every where I go. God help me.

  186. So idk if I have a hangover or what….I drunk half a cup of orange juice and gin with table salt around 5am….it’s now 1am of the next day and my head still hurts….is this weird ?

  187. I drank 4 ciders and 1 beer the night before last I drank them all within an hour and it caused me to pass out and be very ill. I felt so sick yesterday and had a small headache, but I’ve woken up this morning still feeling sick and a thumping headache. I’m only small bodied and it’s only my fourth time drinking and the heaviest I’ve ever drunk when will this end cus it’s awful and I feel like it’s never going to?

  188. First time I drank on 1st august to such an extent I drank 13 shots of vodka and mixed shots of tequila, Jack Daniels and gin. I’m onto 36 hours with my hangover, I feel extremely light headed, numb; I can’t think or concentrate, I feel anxious, depressed, really really guilty, and really regretful. I just feel not in control of my own brain. Should I go see my GP?

  189. Oh my god ..I drank for two days and I feel horrible I ache all over I think I fractured my wrist..Ive got a headache and I dont know how I got home..I had my bike with me and I think I fell off a couple times..my palms are all scraped up ..seriously I feel and look like I got hit by a car..I think the cops talked to me but I have no recolection ..my id was in my front left pocket this morning so thats a good indicator that I was talked to by police..This hangover is terrible….

  190. My husband is drinking but refuses to pack it in he is drinking brandy and shandys. He is hot sweating, vomiting cannot eat. OR refuses to eat and pack in drinking brandy

  191. My boyfriend has been drinking for a few days now, and has been vomiting for 2 days. How he’s complaining that his stomach and scrotum hurts when he pees and after. What is the cause for this?

  192. I went out to a friends party drank three small strawberitas, then I took about two shots of vodka and played beer pong. I’m pretty light weight so you can say I was drunk. When I got home I threw up and went straight to bed. Didn’t wake up until 12 pm the same day, I had a stomach ache and a head ache, I also felt very dizzy. I laid in bed for awhile, watched some TV then decided to order pizza. I ate a couple slices, but I felt awful for the rest of the day. I have never had such horrible stomach pains. I slept most of the day but kept waking up. It hurt so much! Around 10pm I threw up again.. And A LOT. So I decided to go to the store and buy some Gatorade as well as pedalyte, hoping to feel better. I kept drinking that for a couple hours. Woke up the next day still in a lot of pain, I had a little bit of rice and chicken for lunch and kept drinking the stuff I got. I called out of work…I couldn’t even walk. I’ve been in bed all day, it’s my second day still with this pain. I can’t take anymore but I don’t want to see a doctor I would have to tell my parents I was drunk (I’m 18). Someone help pls!

  193. Last night was my second time drinking. I had svedka vodka and Arnold Palmer. I have been puking all day, I can’t keep anything down not even water. I’m so dizzy and my heart is racing and I can’t stay calm to sleep or relax. I throw up everytime I lay down or eat/drink. I’ve never felt worse in my life. I’ve tried to eat greasy foods but they don’t stay down. I am out of ideas and just want to feel better 🙁

  194. I’m 16, smoked two nights ago and decided I wanted to drink for the first time, I took four shots of mixed stuff and I have had an on and off feeling of being lightheaded and out of it for two days. When will this go away? And is it a normal feeling?

  195. I got plastered last night which is a rare thing for me to do. But I’m in college, I had a shitty week, and I decided I was going to go out. There has been only one other time I did this and that was also pretty bad, but this one is just a continuous headache and nausea but without vomit. I wish I could puke, it would probably be better for me. My blood sugar is dropping, but I can’t eat. And I’m so dehydrated but the taste of water makes me wanna gag. I wish I just had like a bag of normal saline to use as an I.V. This is so awful. Its been almost 24 hours since I first started drinking. I just wish it would stop! :(((

  196. Hey, I’m only 16 and last night was the first night i ever got really drunk. Basically i drank about half a bottle of red wine and then a few sips of peach schnapps and patron. I’m pretty sure it was the worst decision of my entire life. I puked six times and even now, a good 18 hours after I stopped drinking, moving too fast makes me feel like I’m gonna puke. Just the thought of alcohol is making me sick. I will not be drinking anytime soon. I will say that for some odd reason “cheez it’s” and “mountain dew” made me feel a lot better (after i started keeping stuff down). Drinking is not my thing after all.

  197. I had 3 beers and 3 glasses of rosie wine on saturday its now monday evening and i feel terrible but i wasnt too bad yesterday wtf can anyone help???

  198. Im only 16 and last night until about 1am i did nothing but drink and smoke at my friends birthday party. It was for at least 9 hours doing both. We were mixing drinks and I was drinking straight Vodka. I just feel really dizzy and like discombulated in a way. Will this feeling go away soon???

  199. I’ve drank for bout three days straight and decided ok that’s enough now laying in bed sweating like hell I puked today stomach hurts I can’t eat but I am able to keep water down ugh I fucking hate hangovers think I would learn not to do this to myself someone help me cure this lol

  200. So last night about eleven. I got four mikes harder limonaid. A couple of sips of four loco. Then decided to mix a third of a four loco with my mikes. Then my mikes got low so I pored son rum in. Here it is the next night and I feel like shit. I slept till 4pm and had some bread and peanut butter. But I feel very queesy and I’m scared. I’ve been drunk before but never felt like this. It is now 10:30. What should I do?

  201. I stopped drinking 7 hours ago. Ive slept for 45 mns. I still feel drunk. Why? Am i dying? Or should i start drinking again? Oh and i drank vodka whiskey and baileys. The baileys was really good!

  202. Okay,
    So I am not a stranger to a bad hangover. Do I get them all the time, no, I do not. Wednesday night though, I went out with some friends. I had 4 bottles of Smirrnoff ice, half a liter of red wine before going out. I had two more glasses of wine when I went out, then switched to Beer, had about 5 of those, Normally I do not mix this bad, I went home from the bar, and drank the rest of the wine, which was a 1 L bottle, so half of it before and half after all what I had out.
    This was Wednesday night, I didn’t get to bed until about 7am Thursday morning, I had steak and eggs before going to bed, I figure it would help any hangover I was going to endure. Drank some water and went to bed. I slept most of the day got up, had something to eat, was in rough shape. Went back to bed that evening around 9:30 and slept until 8am..friday morning, I got up had breakfast, drank fluids, Still felt way off. It’s 3:40am Early Saturday morning now.. and I am still feeling all weird and kinda messed up from it. Is this possible? I have had hangovers that, the first day I am in rough shape, the next day tired, and basically burnt out a bit, but never like that. It’s like a messed something up inside of me permanently this time, it’s a weird feeling. Been eating fine, started putting the water to myself even more all day friday except for when I slept. I dunno, what is it?

  203. I celebrated my 19th birthday on saturday and had 2 coolers and 5 shots of tequila. i had lots of bread and water before bed and all yesterday i felt like i was gonna die, it started off with nausea when i woke up and then changed to just a really sore stomach. it physically hurts. still drinking water… LOTS of water, is there any advice out there for my stomach pain?

  204. Then it gets worse, youll drink even more and more for a long while till you tolerance becomes out of the wolrd. We are talking crazy abouts of booze. Pints at a time. Then it starts taking less amd less to get drunks – you are the psoriasis phase here.

  205. I am 38 years old and I drink alcohol up to four times a year. When I was younger I drank and partied a lot more but the hangovers became more and more severe, so I thought several times if I wanted to drink at all. Last Saturday I had my birthday and I drank many shots (maybe 5 or 6) of pure Smirnoff vodka. Since my body is not used to alcohol, it is no wonder that I started vomiting and went to “sleep”–i.e. passed away at 11 PM. The next day I spent vomiting, unable to keep any liquid in and the worst part lasted up to 6 PM. Now, 4 days after the party, I STILL feel like I’ve dropped on my head. I feel dizzy, tired, forgetful, low. I cannot go to gym or function normally. Why is that? Has my liver stopped dealing with alcohol? Is my blood thick? I understand that I must not even drink four times a year, since the hangovers are so bad and alcohol does not good to me. But why can other people drink and I cannot?

  206. I’m 23 years old and I had a drink on Saturday, drank vodka and coke but I only had a banana and a packet of crisps, it’s now Monday and I haven’t eat anything yet never had a hangover this bad in my life! My boyfriend thought is been spiked the amount I was throwing up but I only had a drink with my friend! Never again I don’t normally drink vodka and I’m not a big drinker but I’ve never had a hangover longer than 1 day!

  207. Hi there, i’m only 19 (from the uk so allowed to drink at this age)and am going through a hangover now as i type this. The average time for my hangovers to last is 24 hours. Is this normal at my young age?

  208. I’m 5’8″ 20 years old and I can’t breathe while I puke everything out 🙁 what do I do??? I tried Advil but that couldn’t stay down! It’s been more then a day now and i can’t sleep

  209. I drank two nights in a row.. For a wedding and my hang over just started today and I can’t seem to eat or drink and I’m really shaky I tried eating and drinking countless amounts of water but it won’t stay in 🙁 I’m about to go to emerg I’m wondering if that’s a waste of time but I’m so hungry I’m shaky and weak

  210. I found when during a hangover..eating salads and fruits vegies and soup only is the best and healthiest foods for one because they all contain water so the more wayer consumption the better:)

  211. So I’m not a heavy drinker, I occasionally do a shot or drink a few glass of wine, nothing much, last Saturday I had maybe about six drinks, started throwing up, passed out when I came home, got up threw up again n went back to sleep. I had soup, and drink half gallon of coconut water as well as water to flush my system, here we are Monday night and I’m still feeling nausous and dizzy and had headaches earlier, why is that? Shouldn’t this hangover stopped by now or is it something else?

  212. Lauren — my sister had a similar experience a couple of years ago. We suspected she might have been slipped something in her drink, but we don’t know for sure. She was drunk, but not too bad off, then disappeared. We found her in the drunk tank a few hours later, and she got belligerent and tried to fight our mum. An hour later she came to and had no memory, and no hangover. If she was drugged, it sounds like the same substance was used on you.

  213. It was New Years and I drank a lot… I also smoked weed. The next dunicojldnt eat it drink until night time evacuee EVERYTIME I drank water is get even more light headed. Well it’s already been 3 days and I am still light headed and I can not focus.. I’m wondering if this is normal? I drank a lot but I feel like I didn’t drink enough to e feeling this way BEAUSE I didn’t pass out or throw up. What COULS be wrong?

  214. I drunk a mixture of drinks a couple of nights ago I woke up the next morning sick then started shaking over the next day and today I’m still shaking but not as bad and my stomache hurts?

  215. So last night was new years and I drank 3 and a half beers and had 7 shots if vodka. In only 1 hour. Today I felt like complete crap. I could not eat at all today. Be careful of your pace. It definitely makes a huge difference. Drink allot of water if this happens. My hangover still hasnt went away and.its been 24 hours already…

  216. @Steve — If she isn’t throwing up blood then I would continue to wait. Keep trying pedialyte. Just a few tablespoons at a time. If her condition gets worse then see a doctor. No need for ER unless she is throwing up blood. Dehydration is a concern but you can go a couple of days without water.

  217. Hi Steve. I’d suggest that you call her primary physician, report the symptoms, and seek advice. If it’s not possible to get in touch with the family doctor, call the emergency room. If you suspect dehydration, she may need an IV drip. But seek medical help immediately. You can also call the Poison Control Center at 1-800-222-1222 for advice. Best of luck to you both.

  218. My roomate is currently going through the worst hangover I’ve ever seen. She came in last night after drinking at a party/bar, at 10:30 pm, and then started vomiting and hasn’t been able to keep anything down, or stop vomiting since then. It’s now 4:00pm the next day, 17 1/2 hours later. She’s still vomiting/dry heaving about every five minutes right now. I’ve gotten her bananas, coconut water, and pedialyte, but she still can’t keep anything down. It hasn’t been 24 hours yet, but at what point should she go to the doctor/hospital? Would Doctors on Duty be able to handle this or should we go straight to the ER?

  219. Hi, I recently went out and drank my usual wine, a bottle with dinner and in the evening. Was then invited out and had another bottle but this is where it gets fuzzy. I don’t know what I drank after that bottle I remember leaving my glass on the side of the bar! I then blacked out completely waking up on the floor of the pub & apparently getting violet (I am not a violet person at all and would never hurt a fly) I then had to be escorted out the pub which then as my mates put me in the car my body went completely limp and had three of them to get me in (I’m not big girl 5ft 5 and 9 stone) the next day I didn’t have a hangover at all and no munchies (very very unusual for me) and was completely put off my food. When told what happened I was mortified and still trying to remember what happened!! Never before have I passed out and blacked out and if I did drink that much to do so I would of thought I would of at least have a headache!!! Can anyone help?

  220. he will be a ok just a little sock to the increase in strength of alchohol! so he just got hit a little harder and stronger

  221. My boyfriend has never thrown up from alcohol before. He has had little hangovers which only included a headache and he would be fine the next day. Then yesterday was his 22nd birthday. He drank beer, like he normally does, then he had a shot, and he never drinks shots. He threw up 6 times in the car and he wanted to drink a lot of water today and not eat. I think that he will be fine by tomorrow, but am I wrong?

  222. On Saturday night, I drank 1 and a half bottles of rose wine, and on Sunday, I vomited 13 times, 11 times at my work at night, and twice more when I came home, and I couldn’t even keep water down and ended up vomiting green bile. Its now Monday and I still feel absolutely awful, I keep shaking and I feel really dizzy and nauseous still. Is this normal to experience a hangover this bad? I never ever usually drink as much as that.

  223. I used to be able to put away a twelve pack and a fith of whiskey in one night , now that I’ve gotten older I have noticed if
    I drink only 6 or seven pints I have a hang over,
    Is this because of liver damage or just aging I’m 55 ,
    Getting old sucks !

  224. Hi, everyone. I had a crazy weekend drank fri, sat & sun. the last day only ate a snack and drank the whole day. Mon I woke up and I thought I need it to eat something so I got some soup. But my stomach couldn’t take it it didnt want to go down my throat. I felt my stomach with a really bad burning sensation. My chest felt like congested felt dizzy, shaky and sweating. I thought I was going to die. Couldn’t sleep. I had 2 meals yesterday felt a bit better but last night I woke up to a stinging sharp headache. I had hangovers before but not this bad. I took an aleve it took a while to go away. Fell better now this morning but my appetite is not back yet. What can I do am scared.

  225. Hello, I drank 750ml of Vodka, Im not a alchoholic. Im 16 years old, I was stupid wanted to have some fun with my friends. Its been 4 days in total, I STILL feel like shit. I have sweats, I can barly eat, and I get a headache that’s been going on for 3 days, I even had diarrhea for 2-3 days that was totally green/yellow/water at one point. I just don’t feel the same I felt before I drank. Its starting to scare me, Please reply to my email address thank you so much.

  226. Hi Nelson. Yes, seek medical help if a possible hangover does not resolve after a day, or two. It’s possible that another medical condition may be present.

  227. Hi All, I went out last night had a few cocktails and sambucas also had some wkds and i feel like s**t!!, also got charged with breach of the peace which is really bad and got a £40 fine!, alcohol is not worth it just stop drinking i am, i knew last night that going out was a bad idea but done it anyway, i have a sore head, unsettled stomach, cant eat, i generally just feel tired (but cant sleep) and feel wierd to be honest, i also have HIGH very high levels of health anxiety as i have problems with anxiety when i dont drink and i have found the next day my anxiety ”hits the roof” i honestly feel so dissapointed in myself i wish the government would just ban the stuff its soo not worth it. I am just going to avoid it i mean its pure evil alcohol.. for all you who are suffereing from a hangover then the only thing that will heal it is time and sleep and eating nothing else helps it whatsoever… my hangover been all day and it now 6pm at night and im starting new job tommorow and my hangovers usually last for several days alongisde a week or two of high anxiety and feeling depressed = NOT WORTH IT !! for a few hours of fun

  228. I very much dislike getting “shit faced” some would say i rather have a social drink when going out with friends every once in a while Friday happened all to fast but im still feeling like my stomach isnt the same

  229. On friday i ended up drinking way to much and throwing up, i noticed there was a little blood in my vomit so i woke up the next morning shaking feeling dizzy sweating and nauseated so i decided to go to the doctor to make sure everything was ok. The doctor said i probably popped the blood vessels in the back of my throat and thats where the blood is from. But now it is monday and i still feel awful, i cant eat without feeling sick and i have no energy. Whats wrong with me.

  230. OMG I had too much wine last night and it was crappy wine and I have never felt so awful in my life. I am sitting at work about to puke every five seconds, my head is pounding, I have the shakes, and I want to crawl into a hole and maybe just live there forever and never drink again. Why do we do this to our bodies?!

    1. What they don’t tell you. Binge drinking only on Fridays is harder on your body than drinking steadily through the week. I partied hard on weekends and now at 42 I developed alcoholic peripheral neuropathy. Burning tingling hands and feet that won’t go away, and make it impossible to sleep. Now I have a chronic panic disorder too after years of being a confident speaker.

  231. at last night i wass drinking som beers and i taked over i wass noysy and out of controll , and when i waked upp i feel kida dissy and my head wass hurting , but now is like 14 hour seens i waked opp and now im a little wooried abaut the hangover whill it go away ???? :;(

  232. I drank about 10 pints on Friday night, and it’s now Tuesday and I still feel like I am dying, I got shortness of breath since Saturday and complete exhaustion, this happens every time I drink now. I feel like I am going to pass out. I think I’ve developed a alcohol intolerance. Never used to have these problems until a few years ago.

    I got to stop drinking, I wouldn’t wish these hangovers on anyone. It’s like a nightmare you can’t wake up from

  233. Why does drinking & laughing trump being smart? I know I suffer severe hangovers, but I never think of it during the night. I just keep on till its way too much for me. I drink the same as friends, & they are mildly hungover/tired, but I am sick sick sick! I could give myself a 2 drink rule, but I would forget the rule. Dummy.

  234. In the last couple of years my hangovers after binge drinking have started to last 48 hours before I start to recover. I can’t sleep. I get hot and then cold and sweaty then cold then hot again. I can’t hold water down and I’m not interested in trying to eat food. I have even started to get suicidal thoughts during these bouts with alcohol. I’m sure I am using the alcohol to treat a depression which then gets much worse when I’m hungover, but for some stupid reason I just can’t quit the binge drinking. When I am out doing it, drinking, dancing, talking, and having fun it seems to be such a great thing, but then instead of drinking 3 or 4 drinks, I end up drinking 13 or 23 or who knows how many after you have had that much.

    I don’t have any help for anyone, but I can say that I have been there and I feel better on my own after 48 hours or so.

  235. SHE”LL B OK!!! GIVE IT ANOTHER DAY OR 2,N SHE”LL B FINE!! AFTER THE EXERCISING N DRINKING THAT TENDS TO HAPPEN. JUST DRINK LOTS OF FLUIDS LIKE WATER,& GREEN TEA N SHE WILL B FEELING BETTER IN A FEW DAYS TOPS!! IF NOT, GO TO THE DRS OR HOSPITAL. GOOD LUCK!!!

  236. Hi, I stopped drinking into the early hours of friday morning, was drinking all night, vodka cans everything. i felt hungover the day after, and now it’s sunday, and i still feel (dizzy and lightheaded) its not as bad as yesterday, but still there. Also, I’m a but concerned because I don’t know wether the dizzyness is from the drink, or… i ended up banging my head that night, into my friends head, lol. don’t ask, i had a small lump, and it felt a little bruised, the bruised feeling is going now, it’s been about 48 hours since it happend. Do you think i might have concussion?

  237. my mom is trying to figure out what she’s sick with. her symptoms are: extreme pinching in her stomach, nausea, fatigue and body aches. She did go out last night, but she says if it’s a hangover she’s never had one this bad. she’s not thrown up, she doesn’t have a fever or a headache, and she did go to the gym yesterday as well which could be causing the stiffness and pinching in her core. hangover or flu?

  238. I drank some heaven hill last night with my friends. I don’t remember how much I had but around 2 AM i was on the floor. I haven’t thrown up in years, but last night and today I’ve thrown up around 5 times. My head doesn’t hurt, but if i move to fast i get a little light headed. I’ve never had a hangover before and i’m really worried. Any suggestions that could help?

  239. i have been drinking for a year just at weekend i had several hangover but it just last a few hours but everything goes to normal a gain last week i had nasty hangover that still lasting for a week [till writing this] it was nasty at first but now it is a bit mild i feel something up normal in my head [mild headache with a sound of a[ heeesss ] i am worried a permanent damage has happiend any advice

  240. Hi Mary. Yes, you may want to take her to see a doctor, especially if she is very dehydrated and cannot keep anything down. She may need an IV drip for fluid intake. While a normal and expected outcome of excessive binge drinking, dehydration can become a medical problem if left untreated. Or, try administering hydration salts (you can buy them over-the-counter). They taste awful, but will replenish and balance her body’s fluids and minerals. At any rate, call for a medical opinion and take action based on a professional’s advice. Good luck!

  241. Hi , My 18 yr old Daughter stayed at her friends last night and she ended up drinking alcohol last night . She got so sick that she called me to come get her and admitted to drinking . She said she was drinking something called red berry amsterdam and she drank alot of it. She has been throwing up for 13 hr’s . She was drinking gingerale and water but she keeps vomiting it up. Right now she is laying with a cold rag on her head and hasnt vomited in about an hour so i’m hoping that its over but if not and she does get sick again , is this normal or should i take her to the er ?

  242. So I went out with my friends to a house party on wednesday (we’re on a break from school), and I drank about 6 drinks with bacardi and soda, 7 or 8 shots of bare bacardi and a cider. This is my second time being drunk and I’ve never had hangover before.. Today it’s saturday and it’s been around 50 hrs since i drank, and I’ve had nausea all the time.. I havent puked or anything but it feels like i have to after eating. The first 24 hrs i barely eat anything or drank for that matter because it was hard to keep it down. Is this normal and will it go away soon? and what do i have to do to speed up the process?

  243. I am on day 3 of a vicious hangover. This is the first time I have gone into day 3 with one. Pretty damn scary, really. I hadn’t had a drop of alcohol in 2 weeks (a long time for me!) and then last Friday night, I arrived in Reno, NV. Uh oh!! Free booze when you’re playing, and only $1.50 for a beer when you’re not. I should have known I was in trouble. I had my first beer at about 5:00 PM, and I don’t remember a thing after about 9:00 PM. I woke up in my hotel room about 6:00 AM the next morning, in agonizing pain. How I got back to my hotel room is a mystery. I have no recollection of that. Strangely, I now had several hundred dollars more than what I brought with me in the first place. Apparently I am a good drunk player. Anyway…I haven’t had hardly any food since lunch on Friday (it’s now Monday afternoon) because my stomach just can’t handle it. Therefore, in addition to the regular hangover symptoms, I am definitely malnourished right now. This is pure misery. 100 times worse than any flu I have ever had.

    Isn’t drinking fun??? 🙁

  244. I’ve been having 3-4 day hangovers for years, really brutal ones. Only this week I had to much to drink and have been crippled for the last 3 days with dehydration, pain in my kidneys and my eyes swollen, water retention. I would like to tell you all that it gets better, but it doesn’t , the older you get, the longer and more painful the hangovers will get. I am quitting this time as I look and feel like I’ve been run over by a truck, takes the fun out of drinking don’t you think?

    Good luck to you all, drink is a curse, stop before you do permanent damage.

  245. I had a alot to drink on a thursday, it was about 7-8 shots of Taka i belive but man its been about 2 days and i am feeling dizzy and a headache that makes me want to close my eyes and go to sleep ( at work with this ). I took something for the headaches and i sort of helped, but now i know i won’t do this again.

  246. Hi shell fish. We’re glad to be of service to you. The very best of luck in rehab. It’s something new, which can always be scary, but is so worth it in the end!

  247. Hi AB,
    I really enjoy your blog you give safe and sound advice. Waiting to get to rehab and your blog is so much help.

  248. On Tuesday night, I had two and a half shots of Johnny Walker, double black label. It’s a scotch whiskey. It was over the course of like three hours. I never got blasted, or even to the point I was sluring my words, but the next day around 10AM, I began vomitting and last night (Saturday night) was the first night I was able to hold anything down. I didn’t have a fever or any other flu symptoms. I’ve been sipping on water constantly, and drinking Emergen-C to restore my electrolytes. However, my stomach never really recovered. Four days seems a bit extensive. I typically drink maybe two or three times a month, and three shots is always my limit whatever it is I’m drinking. So, my body responding this way is quite alarming. Any thoughts?

  249. I am going through a terrible hangover right now… my head doesnt hurt anymore, but im sure that’s because im drinking a lot of water… It’s the longest hangover i’ve ever had.. not that i drink all the time or anything. I drank on saturday and today is monday and i’ve felt like im going to vomit all day, but there’s nothing in my stomach. Im not suppose to drink, im only 17, so maybe that’s where i went wrong….or maybe it was mixing drinks.. i didnt know that you arent supposed to mix light liquor with dark liquor and i drank a lot of vodka/whiskey mix… idk if that would make me feel more sick or not…

    1. Shay, your stomach should not still feel upset. take alka seltzer and or tums and try to eat something. Anything. Toast, cereal or just drink a glass of milk. you may have a stomach virus. Eat and see how you feel. You may just have to throw up and get somethin outta there that your body doesn’t agree with.

  250. i am 44 and have done a lot of drinking over the years, most heavily in my 20s but had to slow down after 30 due to the increasing pain and duration of the hangovers. Anyhow, my brother got married 2 nights ago and I overdid it. started with brandy, had some vodka mixed drinks, rum, beer. It was a good time (Ron Jeremy was even there!) and I did not vomit but blacked out a bit, the next morning I felt awful. I went to work anyway, big mistake. I think the 30 minute car ride unsettled my stomach. I puked up some yellow bile 3 or 4 times, spent most of the morning lying on the floor in a back office, and went home a few hours early. Today I felt way better but still not great. I hope by tomorrow I’ll be back to reasonably normal. I know I really need to limit myself to two drinks and then everything would be fine. Those open bars are a curse.

  251. I went out on saturday,and I still have hangover, I only drunk 4 beers and didnt even get drunk. I had hangover on Sunday,and from Monday to Tuesday night I couldnt sleep almost all night cos I was feeling so bad. Today is Wednesday and Im still not feeling well. This is very unusual for me, and Im worry that this is something serious. I dont understand why I have hangover lasting almost 4 days,when I didnt even drink that much.

  252. Hi !

    I gotta have the worst case of hangover in my life. For two days I drank about 8-9 beers per day. (im not sure if thiss is accurate I might lost count) Now I am feeling totally weak , my breath is shallow and a heart rate is very slow and my hands are shaking. I can’t sleep becaouse when I lie down my head spinns and I feel very uncomfortable. I feel exhousted and actually affraid Im gonna die. I also got this feeling like emptiness inside me. Please give me some advice how to ease down those symptoms I drink much water already … also will somking will make very much worse for me ?

  253. Hi Jen. These are good questions. I’d suggest that you ask them to your family doctor or a medical professional. In terms of drugging, it’s possible that yes, something was slipped into your drink. You can find out more about possible drugging by taking a hair sample to a drug testing lab and asking that possible drug metabolites be isolated and identified within a certain date range. Good luck!

  254. Ok, so I had 5 beers on Friday night & a few sips (literally, didn’t even drink 1/4 of it) of a rum & coke. I probably didn’t need the 5th beer & definitely didn’t need the rum (which is why I didn’t drink it), but I wasn’t feeling wasted at all, just a lil buzzed at best. The next day, I felt terrible, super hungover & dizzy. I thought it was a lil strange for the hangover to be that bad, but didn’t think too much of it. I mean sometimes I’ve had bad hangovers without getting really wasted, but it’s usually from drinking on an empty stomach, not drinking any water, & drinking hard alcohol or red wine – none of which was the case this time. The oddest thing was that I was SUPER emotional and didn’t even know why. Now, 3 days later (ok 2 1/2), I still feel dizzy. Not unbearably, but I just feel a little off. I’m wondering if its possible I could have been drugged or something.. I’ve never had side effects like this from beer & have never had a hangover last this long, even when I’ve drank a lot more and mixed alcohols. Or could a female’s cycle influence alcohol effects? The emotional-ness could have been cuz it’s getting close to that time, but I only felt emotional when I woke up & it wore off as the day went on.

  255. Hello Dingle Dangle. Thanks for sharing a very practical tip on living a sober life. You’re really describing the COST VS. BENEFIT of alcohol method which is outlined in the SMART Recovery Program. If you haven’t hear of SMART yet,…check them out. You might really like their practical self-help program (totally free) for stopping drinking. It’s a great alternative to the 12 steps, and advocates for health rather than total abstinence.

  256. I sort of hit an early mid life crisis since I turned 40. I turn 44 this fall. I’ve had a terrible time giving up drinking. It’s strange how the human brain has such a great ability to FORGET how bad hangovers really can be. The trick is to create reminders to not let you forget. But be careful because these same reminders can also trigger your habit by being reminders of alcohol itself. Choose reminders that focus hard on the badness of your past hangovers. Maybe if you are having a hangover right now is the best time to write down how you are feeling, what your symptoms are, and how it’s negatively affected you life (missed days at work or school, etc). Anyway, it’s getting easier and easier for me to give up drinking but I have to confess that I have a hangover now. But I am having less and less of them as I purposely and constantly remind myself that it’s not worth getting drunk. Also getting drunk is over rated. Just when you reach your peak at feeling good it’s just a downwards spiral despite drinking more that night. Also most the people that I know that drink to excess really are not happy. They either fight, argue, get sad, mope, or end up in bad relationships while intoxicated. If you think of the economics of drinking (and I’m not talking about money) you will see a balance that your life is trying to play out. There is a huge price for just a couple hours of pleasure to counter that pleasure.

  257. For DECADES I put up with with killer hangovers. I went through a period of years where I would lay on the floor all day and take Xanax the day after drinking heavily. I couldn’t go outside. I called these my “horizontal days”. I finally discovered a cure to hangovers. Don’t drink. I haven’t drank alcohol in almost 2 years. Good Luck.

  258. Hi Max. If your tolerance to alcohol has diminished, it’s possible that you may be experiencing the side effects of acute alcohol poisoning. I’d suggest that yes, you follow up with a doctor. Even if you’ve been feeling so poorly ONLY as the result of drinking too much, it will most likely ease your mind to have a medical opinion.

  259. Hi I had maximum number of red wine the previous night i think more than 4 bottles…Usually I don’t drink these days….Previously i used to drink a lot that was 5 years back…Right now i am going through worst kind of hangover and stomache and its been more than 36 hours… should i be worried or see a doctor….

  260. Hi Missbrightside. Moderate drinking is up to up to 1 drink per day for women. For women, heavy drinking is defined as consuming an average of more than 1 drink per day. For women, binge drinking is defined as 4 or more drinks on a single occasion, generally within about 2 hours.

    So how much is too much?

    More than 1 drink a day puts you at risk of developing alcohol abuse, dependence or alcoholism.

    How do you compare with the national average?

    Around 1 out of 6 people in the United States have a drinking problem. Among women who drink, 13 % have more than seven drinks per week.

    Do you want to stop? That’s up to you. Please let us know what you think.

  261. I am a very social drinker but I don’t seem to know when to stop. Last night was my friends 21st, and I had about 5 half shots, a daquiri, and three cans of beer. I’m a female, 5’4, 120 lbs. Am I drinking too much? It’s 5 pm the next day, and I still feel sick…

  262. Hi bodybuilder. Lethargy or lack of energy can be attributed to many different states of mind and health. If this feeling continues, you might want to see your physician or talk with a counselor about what’s preventing you from living an energetic, full life.

  263. Hey everyone, its Monday afternoon and I got drunk Friday night.I drank white wine lots of it.I feel better today but I have no type of enegry and I’m lazy ass hell .is this ok

  264. Hi Caleb. Yes, it’s normal to feel disoriented and even intoxicated after binge drinking. You need to give the alcohol time to metabolize through your body, and be sure to drink plenty of liquids to prevent dehydration. An over the counter NSAID such as ibuprofen, aspirin or acetaminpohen might help you manage symptoms like headache, or general discomfort. Check with a pharmacist for hangover treatment options that might be right for you.

  265. Last night was my first time drinking and me and my friends drank about half a bottle of southern comfort and a full bottle of cherry vodka. I went to bed at around 5:30 am and woke up at 1:30. I still felt drunk at that point and right now 7 and a half hours after walk up I still feel a bit drunk, disoriented, and feel bad. Is this normal?

  266. Hi Shea. Mixing alcohol with opioids like hydrocodone is very dangerous and enhances the sedative effects of both. I’d suggest that you check with a doctor if the systems of stomach pain and nausea continue much longer than 24 hours. In fact, depending on how you feel….you may want to seek help immediately. It’s possible that a number of different treatments from antacid to ginger tea can help settle your stomach…but you’ll need a medical opinion and advice to be sure.

  267. Last night i mixed some hydros and like 8 shots of vodka and i passed out around 330 am its now 12 am thr next day and my stomach has been absolutly killing me the whole day along with my head and ive tried naseau tablets but nothing helps what should i do?

  268. Hi Matthew. That sounds like a major alcoholic binge. No wonder you are feeling so poorly. It might help to get some IV fluids for dehydration. And drink ginger or peppermint tea for the nausea. But your body is having a severe reaction to drinking too much, so besides fluids….it might be good to wait until you are no longer nauseous to try to start eating again. You can also seek the help of a medical professional like a general practitioner MD for medical advice.

  269. Okay so like last night I only drank a wine cooler with vodka, and possibly drank half a liter of vodka straight, and another fourth of a liter with OJ… My first ever hang over, dizzy, can’t keep anything down, not even water, its been like 14 hours, when should I attempt to put something in my stomach?

  270. Hi Lynn. No. It’s not normal to have a headache for six days after intoxication. It’s possible that you are dehydrated, or experiencing another medical condition. I’d suggest that you go and see a general or family doctor ASAP and seek a diagnosis to help you understand and treat this symptom.

  271. Hello all, on 4th of july I drank tequilla alot!!! Thought I was going to die the next day!!!! Had a hangover for about 3-day’s but, for six days I have had a headache is this normal???

  273. Hello Jayde. You’ll need to give it some time. Hangovers don’t last much past 72 hours. However, if you find that you still have symptoms of nausea and vomiting in the next few hours be sure to intake fluids, or seek medical help (an IV fluid) to prevent dehydration. It sounds like, in your case, you may have gone through some acute alcohol poisoning. You are lucky that you were conscious enough to vomit to the side. Others have been drowned from their own vomit.

  274. I’m 135lb, 5’7″ and a girl. Last night I took 9 shots of whiskey and got extremely wasted. I don’t drink too much, so this is only my second hangover and it has been completely awful. It has now been 21.5 hours since my last shot and I’m feeling extremely sick to my stomach. At about 4am this morning I woke up in a ton of puke. I remember throwing up about 5 times, but I passed out in the vomit again afterwards. I feel like absolute shit. When will this he’ll end?!?! Thank you!

  275. Hi Natalia. It’s possible to have a 36-48 hour hangover, especially after mixing types of alcohol. How do you feel now?

  276. I dont drink much at all but I drank Friday night, i mixed gin,red wind and rum together. i was pretty drunk but i remember everything pretty clearly. its sunday now and i feel completely exhausted, i feel light headed and i feel slightly numb, i had about four hours of sleep friday night, saturday night i had 8 hours, i am not feeling like myself, i will be going to the doctors tomorrow if it doesnt get better is this a hangover still or am i sick

  277. Hi Cj. I’ve personally experienced a 72 hour hangover before. But each person is different. To treat the heartburn, you might try eating some ginger or peppermint, or drinking herbal tea from ginger or peppermint. If you’re still feeling awful in another 24 hours, you might want to go to the doctor’s office and make sure that you haven’t gotten a cold, flu, virus or bacterial infection. It’s possible that the hangover may mask the real cause of feeling so badly.

  278. I rarely go out drinking or drink at all so when I do I go hard. This past Saturday I went out with some friends and did my normal drinking. Went to bed at 4am woke at 9am feeling sick as hell. I’ve never experienced a hangover before so this being my first one and the fact it’s lasted since then is strange to me. Still sick to my stomach (can’t manage to throw up even though I’d like to) nasty headache and no matter how much cold liquids i consume I can not get rid of this burning in my throat. (yes I know it’s heartburn) How much longer can this last for?

  279. Hey there, I know its been a while (April 2nd) but thanks for answering. I did not go over 1000 mgs of Tylenol in a 6 hour period. Took 2000 mgs in a 12 hour period. Was afraid of overdose and have no medical insurance, yikes! I have been doing well at not getting wasted. Although memorial weekend is coming up…..lol goodluck to everyone and please try your best to have a fun but SAFE summer!! Think BEFORE you drink!!!!! P.S. for all you girls out there, PLEASE KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR DRINKS as well as how many you drink. Stay smart and don’t be taken advantage of!!!!!!

  280. Hi James. Each person reacts to alcohol differently. It just might be your body’s way of asking you to stop drinking. Or, it is possible that you’ve contracted a stomach virus or other illness on top of the hangover. Maybe you can see an MD and get the symptoms checked out.

  281. Hello Whitney. You probably need to drink lots and lots of water to rehydrate your body. And you may even want to see a doctor to be sure that you have not poisoned yourself with alcohol. At a doctor’s office, you can also ask about over-the-counter remedies.

  282. Hi Kellz. Sorry to hear about your boyfriend’s symptoms of hangover. They sound awful and make me grateful that I don’t drink anymore!

    Nothing but time really is needed. But if he gets dehydrated, perhaps you might take him for an IV infusion so that he can get liquids into his system. And if the hangover persists for more than a day, or two…seek help from a medical doctor.

  283. I went out for a few drinks with my friend at about 11 PM 2 nights ago (technically, but for our purposes it would still be “last night.”) We did a number of shots and had a few beers, after which I went home. We stopped drinking at bar close, so 24 and half hours ago, and I still feel absolutely rotten. I’ve been throwing up stomach bile all day, and it seems that it just won’t stop. I don’t know anybody else who gets hangovers this bad.

  284. I’ve never had a hangover until today. Honestly, I’ve never really drank enough. Until last night… I drank a whole bottle of Cherry UV Vodka. I’ve never felt so awful. I woke up with a head ache so bad I didn’t wanna open my eyes.. And i’ve been nauseous for 12 hours now. I woke up at 10:30… threw up til around 12.. and even though I’m not vomiting anymore.. I’m as nauseous as ever. Any suggestions? I’ve taken some Pepto chewable (which taste horrible), with no results! Someone please help!!

  285. Hi
    My boyfriend is having a terrible time with his hangover, usually I go to work an I make a chicken soup for him when I come back but this time he can’t even hold a sip of water, we drank a whole lot but for some reason I’m not hanging. I immediately ate after my binge an stopped but he didn’t eat? Is there anything I can do for him?

  286. Hi Jay. Thanks for asking. That’s a great question.

    The main active ingredient in Tylenol is acetaminophen. More than 1000 mg of acetaminophen at one time is technically an overdose and can cause liver damage if you consume this dose regularly.

    Does this help?

  287. When I was younger I rarely got a hangover and it maybe lasted a few hours even after drinking half a bottle of jack. Now at 31 I can’t even have a few beers without a problem. I got wasted yesterday watching Flyers game (about 8 strong beers 7% abv and about 4 shots) by around 5pm and I’m still dizzy and headache is unreal. Was nauseous last night but can eat and drink now. Took Tylenol last night and want to take more but how much is unsafe after so much drinking??!! I know its bad for the liver.

  288. Hi Confused. Yes, it sounds really disappointing. But at least you are in good health and the hangover has passed!

  289. I spoke with my doctor who recommended a blood test and there were traces of a drug in my system so it wasn’t just alcohol. I feel very betrayed and have lost an old friend in a truly devastating way. I guess that hangover wasn’t to be blamed on the drinking after all. Depressing.

  290. Hi Martin. Yes, I can relate. In the days when I was drinking, I would go to sleep around 2 or 3 and then wake up, like clock work, at 7. Since then, I have read that after drinking it is difficult to reach REM sleep, and that intoxication requires TIME to feel better. Also, it might be good to set out with a limit for drinks before you start…and stick to it.

  291. I woke up this morning with an awful hangover, I had 8 pints of lager last night so i know why! but I always wake up super early and can’t get back to sleep.

    I have eaten, been for walk and drank loads of water a.nd now the hangover is slipping away its been 5 hours since I woke so its takes a while to go doesn’t it

  292. Hi Lizzy. That is a good question. While I am not certain of why the brain selects cretain moments to store in memory and does not store other moments, you can rest assured that it is still operating when we drink alcohol. Perhaps, as in sober memory making, the mind places importance on more intense, emotional or psychologically important moments to file into memory, and lets go of ordinary, functioning moments because it has to deal with the stress of coping with the physical effects of intoxication.

    Perhaps you could address your question to a neurologist or even your primary doctor for a more precise explanation.

  293. Hi I went to a party last night and I only took about 4 shots of vodka and I passed out. I woke up with a terrible hangover that has lasted for a little more than 24 hrs. This is my first one and I didn’t know they could last this long. However, I really don’t remember anything besides a few memories. Why is it that you only remember certain moments but not all? Like I know why you black out but why those certain blurbs a person still remembers.

  294. Hi Confused. That sounds like a real disappointment. On top of the mega-hangover, you’re dealing with feelings of betrayal and confusion.

    It might help to seek medical advice. Are you able to hold water down? Maybe you are dehydrated? Perhaps there are a few medical explanations for a longer hangover and you might benefit from scheduling an appointment with your GP.

  295. I went drinking with old friends Saturday night. I had four or five, and a half, drinks, rum and coke. I totally trusted my friends and have gone drinking with them before and never had so much as an awkward moment, let alone a problem, so I didn’t think much of my one friend wanting to order and pay for our drinks. He was the DD and I trusted he was looking out for our best interests. But then I felt like my friend was pushing the rest of us to drink more and more so I started to slow down my consumption and by the end of the night it was clear he had plans to take advantage of us being highly inebriated. It didn’t work out as he had planned but it’s the third day and I still feel hungover, although less so than yesterday. I have never had a hangover like this! Isn’t there anything I can do? Also, lesson learned, nobody can be trusted that much. I’ll stick to my two drink limit every time and order or make them myself. What a way to lose a friend after 20 years.

  296. Hello Guilty and Confused. Time will most likely resolve these symptoms. Some things that you can look into include SPECTA, a chalk-based drink to calm the stomach. Or ask a local pharmacy for other over-the-counter products which can help ease nausea. Ginger tea works for some people. So does mint tea. Here are some more ideas for using lemons to help cure a hangover:

  297. Well tonight I was the winter formal, and afterwards I went to a party and someone spiked my drink, and recently I have been an investigator at the church of Latter Day Saints (Morman Church), and their policy on alcohol is zero, and I am 100% for that cause. But last night some of my non-Morman friends spiked my drink and I didn’t remember getting home that night and I woke up super early in the morning and was stomach sick until it was time for me to leave for softball which I ended up skipping, but I still left the house so my Mom didn’t think anything strange was happening(because if you know me you know that I don’t ever slip practice). At first I didn’t know what to do so I looked online and I have tried everything from pickle juice to cold/hot showers but I still have a killer headache and sensitivity to light and sound. I just got stomach sick again and it has been over 24 hours. It’s 2:30 AM here and I have to go to school in five hours! What do I do?!?!?!?

  298. Hi stolethechardonnay. Thanks for your question. Some monster hangovers can last for a few days. Give it some time to wear off, and your motor skills and cognition should return to normal. Again, hangovers are our bodies’ way of telling us what it DOESN’T LIKE!

  299. hi i mixed some drinks but only had 2 shots of chardonnay and champage. i also smoked weed and i think i am experiencing a HUGEEE hangover. i am exhausted, slept all day, awake alll night, feeling a little crazy. i really dont feel well and this is my first potential hangover. i also just cant seem to feel physically comfortable and my hand eye coordination is worse and so are my thinking skills. when will i be normal again?!?

  300. Hi MessedupinMiami. If you think that you’ve been the victim of drugging, you can go to the doctor and request a drug screen, which may be able to detect the presence of depressants in your system. When combined with alcohol, certain types of central nervous system depressants can lead to black outs. But the detection window can be short, so I’d suggest that you get drug tested immediately to be sure that you were not drugged.

    However, blackouts can also be the result of excessive drinking.

    How are you feeling now?

  301. I think I either have alcohol Poisonong or someone slipped something in my drink…. Went out Saturday night I had had a few glasses of wine white and red when I got to club I had a rum and coke…and that was all she wrote I don’t Remeber half of the night … I fell didn’t Remeber? At 4am we left and we had to call someone to pick us up… Today is Tuesday at 4am and I woke up in sweats and I haven’t felt totally good since then? I am scared someone put something in my drink can it last this long?

  302. Hi Jess. Your symptoms seem fairly normal for a hangover. You might try to eat some dry bread or toast, just to get something in your stomach. But nausea and lack of appetite is normal, as is headache. If the ringing in your head persists, you may want or need to see an ENT (ear nose throat) specialist.

  303. I drank way tOo much last night. I can’t eat anytime and I have this ringing in my head. It’s been 24 hours, should I be worried.

  304. Thanks for sharing about your experience, Thomas. It does seem that some people are more prone to hangovers than others. Scientists still don’t know why…but maybe it’s your own internal programming telling you what it can handle?!

  305. Hi Taylor. Unfortunately, you’ve just got to wait it out. Give it another 24 hours. If you still feel badly, then you might want to check in with a doctor to report the symptoms and see if the hangover might be complicated by illness.

  306. I’ve always had unequivocally prolonged and severe hangovers, even a couple of glasses before bed has elicited hangover symptoms. I’m currently aching, disorientated and nauseas after more than 24 hours since my last drink, from a night at the bar which set me back £50. Besides physiological hell, you feel like an absolute idiot.

    Tea, water, supplements and painkillers are what I’m relying on to get through to Monday, when hopefully this will have dissipated. My hangovers wake me up after only a few hours asleep, which probably contributes to why they’re so crippling.

    I remember the day after my 18th, which incidentally I unfortunately don’t remember, convinced I was going to die. Not in a panicked sort of way, I simply couldn’t see myself getting through the day with how devastated my senses were, barely able to keep down water, shaking violently. That lasted only 24 hours, so they’ve gotten longer.

  307. drank alot for my first time last night. not sure why i drank so much but i had alott of tequila and alott of whiskey and rum and jager and i woke up this morning with a super rapid heartrate chills much like when you have the flu, and extreme soreness in my lower body and fatigue. i feel nauseas but not the urge to throw up, its been 14 hours now and i feel awful still. is there anything i can do to ease this and how long should i expect to feel this way???

  308. Hi all, when i started drinking about 8 years ago my hangovers last for max couple hours, later one day, later 2 days, now my hangovers last for 3 days, i drinking only on weekends, in my opinion if your hangovers last for more than one day it means than soon you will become an alcoholic like me and life sucks when i don’t drink, thank you for not drinking it is bad bad bad evil

  309. I’m going through a terrible hangover right now. My head is killing me, I feel like I’m going to puke constantly, but there’s nothing in my stomach to puke up. I know time is supposed to help, but it feels like I’m going to be like this forever

  310. Scientists envisage “stay-sober” pill. A pill that would allow you to drink as much as you want without getting drunk is being developed.

  311. I had a killer hangover that lasted 72 hours once. After that hangover, I decided that I actually had a drinking problem. I think that frequent hangovers are a sign that something is wrong.

I am ready to call
