What happens if I don't eat after a night of drinking?

What happens if I don't eat after a night of drinking?

Depends: You are not specific about these things. If the drinking was not extremely too much and if the delay till eating is not too long, probably nothing but a hangover and feeling a bit weak, tired and bad. If these were excessive, it's clearly not good for you and if this is not a very rare situation, you need to change things. Be honest and seek help if you are alcoholic or anorexic. ...Read more

Why do I get depressed the day after a night of drinking? Is this normal for everybody?

Why do I get depressed the day after a night of drinking? Is this normal for everybody?

Common: I'd call it common, not "normal". Intoxication is dehydrating, saps the body of energy, and is often associated with sleep deprivation. With excessive drinking, there can be a hangover, which is mild alcohol withdrawal. There could also be depression for psychological reasons: how you feel about your night of drinking, etc. Start with water, good nutrition, and moderation (or sobriety). ...Read more

Is it normal to feel guilty after a night of drinking?

Is it normal to feel guilty after a night of drinking?

Drinking and guilt: Feeling guilty after drinking is a good sign. It means that there is growing awareness that a night of drinking is not a healthy outlet.

Yesterday around 4 am after a night of drinking I took 125mg of diphenhydramine hci to help me sleep. How long till it is out of my system?

Risky business: Theoretically, the half-life of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is 8 hours. But you took. A whopping dose, a real benadryl-alcohol mickey finn. That can lead to dizziness, drowsiness ; potential overdose. Don't drive till you're sure you're alert. Btw, I hope you don't choose to do this to yourself again. Drugs ; drinking don't mix. We don't want you to join the " 29 club"! ...Read more

So is Bayer aspirin good to take after a night of drinking?

So is Bayer aspirin good to take after a night of drinking?

Not so safe: Aspirin does cause gastritis (Inflammation and even ulceration in the lining of the stomach). Alcohol has similar but milder effect on the stomach lining. So two of them together can create a bleeding ulcer and hence not recommended to be taken together. Aspirin does relieve the Headache of the hang over from alcohol but a safer medicine would be the use of Tylenol (acetaminophen) instead of aspirin. ...Read more

The back of my left thigh is numb after a night of drinking. I haven't been drinking that long, but I have been drinking the past 3 nights. What's up?

Pressure on a nerve: Numbness of a limb (often w/tingling and occasionally w/weakness) can occur after prolonged pressure on one of the nerves that supply part of an arm or leg. This is common after drinking enough alcohol to sleep more heavily than usual. Sedated sleeping with alcohol can prevent noticing discomfort and waking partially to switch position. No way to tell how long it will last. Often days. ...Read more

Why does my nose bleed after a night of drinking alcohol?

Why does my nose bleed after a night of drinking alcohol?

Nosebleed: One possibility is that during the alcohol binge you got into a fight, and someone punched you in the nose. Alcohol can also act like a blood thinner, causing your platelets to be less "sticky" and not clot well. This is apparently more common in male drinkers than women. If you drink often, you may even have less platelets, period. Http://pubs. Niaaa. Nih. Gov/publications/arh21-1/42.pdf. ...Read more
