Can you expand?: To answer your question, I'd need to know more about what symptoms you are having with licorice juice, and what type of licorice it is. The licorice extract has been known to increase high blood pressure, which could be related to your symptoms. Some people can be allergic to licorice, or other components typically found in licorice containing foods. Consider stopping licorice juice.

Not sure: Some Licorice contains Glycyrrhizin which has potential to cause side effects like numbness, muscular aches, high blood pressure, fatigue, fluid retention, headaches and can effect the heart.
