Is it normal for a hangover to last 30 hours after drinking?

Yes: Hangovers are highly variable, and can last anywhere from a couple of hours to several days. If you are regularly getting long-duration hangovers after drinking, I have another question for you - why are you still drinking when it regularly causes you to be out of commission for more than a day? Continuing to drink despite adverse consequences is one sign of a drinking problem. Talk to your MD. ...Read more

What to do if I do not get hangovers when I exercise whilst drinking?

Don't understand?: Were you hoping to have hangovers?? If not, exercise away. However, most people don't find being intoxicated goes along well with exercise, and alcohol may reduce muscle strength. If you are drinking regularly and routinely getting hangovers, you are drinking too much. You need to consider cutting down and perhaps discussing your drinking with a counselor. Sounds like its a problem to me. ...Read more

Is it ok to take green barley during hangover?

No contraindication: Barley tea has been used to treat hangover, but like most hangover cures, there is little objective scientific evidence to prove this. Better to not drink so much that you GET hangovers, because it also means you are drinking enough to cause other problems, not the least of which is developing alcohol abuse/dependence, as well as liver, heart, stomach, pancreas etc. Hydration, vitamins, rest best ...Read more

Is having a drink first thing in the morning to steady your nerves or to get rid of a hangover, normal?

Is having a drink first thing in the morning to steady your nerves or to get rid of a hangover, normal?

No: Ask yourself these questions: 1) do you feel the need to cut back on your drinking? 2) are you annoyed when others ask you to stop? 3) do you feel guilty about drinking? 4) do you need an "eye-opener" drink in the morning to get going?

I've thrown up over 30 times during a really awful hangover. I don't know what to do to remedy it at home, but I also am unable to go to the hospital.

Drink fluids. Gatorade or similar is best to replenish lost fluids. If you cannot, you should go to the hospital.

If you can take fluids and get better, I recommend you stop drinking! ...Read more
