Yes, in some people: Drinking red wine causes headaches in some people, but white wine doesn't cause a problem.

Risk : Risk factors: abuse of methamphetamines, Cocaine and alcohol. You are emotionally stressed to the point that you vomit. Question 1. Do you self administer methamphetamines rectal suppositories in your anus? Question 2. Do you have unprotected anal sex?
