For many years now I have avoided drinking due to the ongoing hangover type symptoms that carry on for up to 4 days.
For example, if I drink on Saturday night (small amounts, say 5 beers max), I don't feel too bad the next day but Monday, Tuesday and even Wednesday, I feel lethargic, slightly ill and my mind feels weird sort of spaced out feeling.
I have been to my gp who told me to just stop drinking alcohol... but that's not really an answer, as I do enjoy drinking, even if it is only once every 6 months.
To me it seems like my body has trouble processing the alcohol out of my system.
On a couple of occasions after drinking around 4 or 5 rtd's in the evening, by midnight I was so ill, I was sweating and vomiting and diarrhea, which almost caused a panic attack. However that has not happened the last 2 times.
I am on venlafaxine for anxiety, however this used to happen before I was on medication, so we can rule that out.
Anyone have any ideas?
