36 yrs female. As of lately, I drink 1 glass of wine or 1 beer an feels like I drank 6. Dizziness and lightheaded, stomach upset, lasts for day?

Sounds worrisome: If you're saying that each time you drink 1 alcoholic beverage you feel dizzy and lightheaded with an upset stomach for a day, that's a bit concerning. A normal healthy liver and digesto-metabolic system should be able to detoxify one drink.
It's hard to make a diagnosis with limited info.
If I have described the situation correctly, it would be worthwhile to get checked out. ...Read more

Unhealthy Life: I am not sure what you want us to tell you. You made some very unwise choices as far as health goes.

NA option: If you have a sensitivity or allergy to alcohol, then trying to "overcome" can result in worse symptoms, not suppression. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being the "dd" or more covertly opting for non-alcoholic drinks. Alcohol doesn't make the party--you do. ...Read more

3hrs after drinkin beer or red/white wine, chills, goosebumps, hard to breathe, body numb, dizziness, intolerabl itching. What is this? & what remedy?

Sounds like allergy: To something in the drinks, since allergy to alcohol itself is very are. Many forms of alcohol contain preservatives, coloring agents, additives and things that the process itself (brewing beer, fermenting wine) puts into the beverage. An allergist might be able to help. The simplest solution is to not drink beer and wine, especially if there is problem drinking. Gin or vodka have less congeners. ...Read more

Hi I drank baron beer and was not drunk but after one can I fall asleep and woke up but as I stand up I black out. After that I had vertigo?

Low blood pressure: After only one beer it is highly unlikely that the beer caused you to be so sleepy. You may have been drugged. What other medication did you take with the beer? When you stood up you got dizzy which meant your blood pressure was too low. Rest, don't drink anything other than water and see your doctor if it continues. ...Read more

How long does tramadol w/d last? Took one 100mg time release pill every night for 5months. Never had rls just can't sleep and feel dizzy. On day 5

Tramadol Withdrawal: Sounds like you stopped the ER form w/o wean down through the IR form (50mg capsules). Your body is in the process of resetting itself back to its homeostatic state. RLS, insomnia, and dizziness are all withdrawal symptoms related to tramadol. Based on your short 5 month history, I would give it another few weeks before resolution. Talk to your doctor about use of clonidine for reducing symptoms. ...Read more

I'm prescribed 3mg prazosin for ptsd @ bedtime but forgotten for 2 wks. Resumed last night and woke w/ abnormally low BP (90/60) & dizzy, nausea chills?

Not unusual: It is usual to start prazosin at 1 mg and slowly build up. It's also possible that 3 mg will always be too much for you. The main side effect is low BP with attendant symptoms (as you had) since it's primarily used as a BP lowering medicine. ...Read more

Last night I would wake up from extreme dizziness and nausea. The spinning would go away after about 15 seconds. I also have a headache behind my eyes?

Possible BPPV: Awakening from sleep with dizziness and spinning enough to cause nausea and/or vomiting can be caused by positional vertigo.

This disorder arises from movement of your ear rocks (otoconia) into the semicircular canals leading to a sense of motion without actually moving (vertigo).

Either an ENT (ear nose and throat specialist) or neurologist will be able to diagnose and treat this condition. ...Read more

Woke up in night with vertigo/dizzy I take betahistine tabs &missed one dose 2day. Also have panic disorder. My nose is bit blocked. Scared I'm gona die?

You will not die: Vertigo is extremely unpleasant, right up there with panic disorder. In fact, they overlap in symptoms to some degree and some people get non-fearful panic attacks with vertigo as the predominant symptom. Do you have any medication for break- through panic? If not, download one of the free binaural beats apps on healthtap and pick the most soothing setting you can find. Best wishes. ...Read more

Ttc-8days late, woke up really dizzy last night, mild headaches, on off backache, sharp pain in left ovary. Negative test. Could I be preg? Testagain?

Possible pregnancy: You may be pregnant so you may want to test again. Your pain in the ovary may also be due to a corpus luteum cyst which is a cyst from the follicle the egg is released from that month. Sometimes the cyst hangs around longer than it should. If in doubt please see your provider for exam and possible ultrasound evaluation. Good luck. ...Read more
