Rarely do I drink in excess but last nght I had one too many glasses of wine. Diarrhea all morning and now a pain like period cramps in my uterus area?

That's a message!: If you pour alcohol over a cut on your skin, it burns, right? No surprise that pouring alcohol into your gut will make it hurt too. Can't with precision tell you the cause of your symptoms, nor guess how you quantitate "drink in excess." However, for most women, daily alcohol use should be limited to no more than 1 (maybe 2) beverages--seriously. ...Read more

My boyfriend drank wine, vomited and had diarrhea the next day. It only lasted for an hour and then he was fine. He had no other symptoms. Contagious?

No: this is most likely a result of his body reacting to the wine that he consumed, keeping in mind that the amount of wine consumed nor the associated use of other concomittant substances (prescribed or not) have not been mentioned. It does not appear to be contagious. ...Read more

Wine makes me rlly constipated but vodka makes me have diarrhea..? Thoughts?

Wine makes me rlly constipated but vodka makes me have diarrhea..? Thoughts?

Irritable bowel?: Hmm... I can't think of any reason for this. You list irritable bown as a medical condition, and I suppose these problems are related to that in some way. I guess my main thoughts are to avoid too much wine and too much vodka, and then not worry about it. (The comedian in me says drink some of each and balance it out. But that's not a green light to overdo either one!) ...Read more

Whenever i drink alcohol, i wake up in the morning with almost diarrhea/ stomach cramps. Normal? Is having a glass of wine everyday bad?

Whenever i drink alcohol, i wake up in the morning with almost diarrhea/ stomach cramps. Normal? Is having a glass of wine everyday bad?

Normal, for you: In most people this does not happen, but there is a physiologic reason for when it does. The alcohol gets quickly absorbed by the intestinal cells, which then shut down absorption of water from within the intestines. Therefore, there is extra water within the intestines, which comes out as diarrhea. One glass of wine a day, may be beneficial for your heart arteries. ...Read more
