You have typical symptoms of alcohol intolerance which is likely hereditary in your case (a Turkish but Asian descendant). Sometimes, you may be allergic with other ingredients in the alcoholic beverages such as sulfites, chemicals or some grains. Allergy can be hereditary as well because your mom has same problem.
