You would be surprised how many people are allergic to yeast in alcohol.
Beer and Wine especially...sounds like drinking isn't a very relaxing nor enjoyable experience for you - so, why do it??  Either it's an allergy or you are giving yourself alcohol posioning when you drink in excess... your body and brain can only handle so much... You can have allergy testing done to see if you are allergic to yeasts...and you can have bloodwork done to make sure your kidneys are functioning properly as well...you liver might just be tuckered out from having to work so hard...

Hi,

You could be having alcohol intolerance but nothing can be said with surety without a proper clinical examination.

You should avoid alcohol if it is causing your symptoms and take oral antihistamine medications for symptomatic relief.

Have you had allergic reactions in the past? Are you allergic to any other specific substances?

You could read more about the condition at the following link -

www.mayoclinic.com/health/alcohol-allergy/AN00818

It would help to take a vitamin B complex and also consult your doctor for your symptoms if they persist.

Post us if you have any other doubts and let us know about how you are doing.

Regards.
