Damn, how inconveniently mysterious...

I'm an 21 year old student, and I only drink around once a month, and never excessively. Ever since December, I can't have anymore than 3 drinks in one night without feeling violently sick the day after. The strangest part is I will be absolutely fine the whole night, and feel no nausea whatsoever until about 45 minutes after I wake up the next morning. And then it's just Vomit-Central for 5-10 hours.

I drink plenty of water during the night, I limit my alcohol intake to about one per hour... I was never a big drinker, but I like to celebrate special occasions without throwing up my entire soul the next morning...

It seems we've all got a similar problem, but no solution...

acetaldehyde dehydrogenas
Some persons of� far-Eastern� descent have a dominant� mutation� in their acetaldehyde dehydrogenase� gene,[5]� mak ing this enzyme less effective. A similar mutation is found in about 5-10% of blond-haired blue-eyed people of Northern European descent. In these people, acetaldehyde accumulates after drinking alcohol, leading to symptoms of acetaldehyde poisoning, including the characteristic flushing of the skin and increased heart and respiration rates. Other symptoms can include severe abdominal and urinary tract cramping, hot and cold flashes, profuse sweating, and profound malaise. Individuals with deficient acetaldehyde dehydrogenase activity are far less likely to become� alcoholics, but seem to be at a greater risk of liver damage, alcohol-induced asthma, and contracting cancers of the oro-pharynx and esophagus due to acetaldehyde overexposure.

I have had the same problems as all of you too for now 2 years. Uncontrollable vomiting for 5 or more hours the next morning after drinking a few drinks. The first couple times I drank a lot but that's not the case anymore. I know my limit now so it hasn't happened in a few months. But you feel like your fine so you go out drinking and it happens again... My doctor has come up with nothing, I have had a scope, ultrasounds, blood tests, urine tests...Nothing has come up. I don't know what to do and am very concerned. I actually cant believe so many other people are having the same problems and were all in our 20's.

P.S This has happened to me about 8 times. I have found that eating greasy foods like pizza and wings while drinking will make it happen too. So if your eating while drinking eat something healthy!

Do you work out/ use protein powder drinks or pre-workout? I started using them and I realized that might be the issue because I stopped using them and I do not have this problem anymore.

I'm in the same boat
Wow, I can't believe what I am reading. I am 26 years old and I have had the same problem for the past few years. I used to be fine after a night of drinking but now I wake up with the worst hangover and I vomit every 20 minutes. I thought that if I just stuck to beer I would be fine but that hasn't worked. I still wake up feeling like death after five beers. I would really like to find out an answer to why this happens to all of us.

Wow
Well I found this thread looking for answers on what to do if you feel sick the next morning after drinking. I can't believe what all you are going through. I am not a drinker and I had 4 twisted teas last night and it hit me like a rock and I got sick last night, sweats and all and feel a little queasy this morning but thank god no throwing up yet and I've been awake for over 2 hours. I am hoping I don't experience the day after puking like so many of you. Did anyone find an explanation? I'd like to add the twisted tea I drank last night tasted unusually strong...maybe they are making these drinks stronger or something?

I am a 17 year old girl, and as much as I hate to admit it, I have been drinking for the past year or so. I would go to a nightclub or a party with my friends every 2-3 weekends, get pretty drunk (sometimes really drunk)and wake up feeling relatively fine.. sometimes a slight headache or sick feeling. Recently I went to a party, had about 5-6 shots and some seriously strong vodka and cokes which resulted in me being very drunk. I woke up the next morning feeling like death and vomiting up yellow liquid. I would vomit, then feel fine for half an hour and then gradually i would start to feel absolutely terrible until i threw up again. This cycle happened the whole day until i took pepto bismol (sickness relief medicine), in total i was sick about 12 times. I thought that terrible hangover would be a one off due to being extremely drunk on strong spirits.. i was wrong. Now everytime I drink I will be seriously ill the next day, no matter how much water or food I intake. I will wake up at around 6, with shakes, sweats and vomiting. I am worried I have done some serious damage to my liver and will this problem ever go away?? please help!!!

The same as everyone else...
The same thing has been happening to me, in fact just this morning it did. I would say I had a great deal to drink, like 5 or 6 shots of vodka...however I have had the same symptoms with less. The other day I had Smirnoff Ice, about 2 of them and I was fine the next morning.

I am not a smoker, however I am guilty of smoking while drinking (a recent habit). In all honesty, I am a white male, but have like 1% Mongolian heritage, which may explain the "alcohol staying in poison form". That is a real disease my Psych teacher would always talk about it.

I also get the sweats and get very nervous, maybe it's because I am scared to throw up actually causing myself to do so in the end? I remember once I threw up and my parents instantly attributed it to drinking so I was scared to ever throw up in the morning after coming home late, let alone use the bathroom.

So we all know our symptoms, that we have limits, and certain foods may help...but we still do not know a definite cause or cure. I hope someone may have some information as I have found nothing on this, and it is limiting my times as a young adult to have fun and enjoy clubs.

Had it, got rid of it!
Hi all....... Had the same issue. Extreme hangover or so I thought. Migraine, fever, chills, nausea, vomiting all happening the next day eve if after a few drinks. For most of you it is most likely you have an over growth of Candida. Here's some info;

Candida Albicans is an opportunistic fungus (or form of yeast) that is the cause of many undesirable symptoms ranging from fatigue and weight gain, to joint pain and gas.

The Candida yeast is a part of the gut flora, a group of microorganisms that live in your mouth and intestine. When the Candida population starts getting out of control it weakens the intestinal wall, penetrating through into the bloodstream and spreading throughout the body.

s it spreads it produces toxic by-products that cause damage to your body tissues and organs, wreaking havoc on your immune system. The major waste product of yeast cell activity is Acetaldehyde, a poisonous toxin that promotes free radical activity in the body. Acetaldehyde is also converted by the liver into ethanol (drinking alcohol). Some people even report feeling a drunk or hungover feeling along with debilitating fatigue from the high amounts of ethanol is their system.

By drinking Alcahol you are feeding the Candida and producing more poison. SO get on a Candida diet for a few months, get rid of the overgrowth and you will be good to get back on the drinks! Just go slow though....

You are absolutely right. I think there are other causes for this but Candida is my problem and it be honesty your reply was rather terrifying. Lol slowly start drinking? I'll just quit all together because it's not even worth it. The yellow stomach acid, sweats, nausea, setting up a bed in your bathroom just isn't worth it 2 Long Islands. I felt like death this morning. That's so much for this. It's 2 years later but it definitely gave me good feedback. Thanks so much

Gastritis very likely cause
I am a 31 year old female and this problem (excessive vomiting after a night out) has been occuring with alarming regularity since I was about 25. I did discuss it with a doctor years ago and she diagnosed Gastritis which is an inflammation of the stomach lining cause by any number of things, but alcohol and spicy foods are two common culprits.

She told me there were prescription drugs for gastritis but she couldn't prescribe them for me as my problem was self-inflicted and easily remedied: drink less.

Some nights I take acid reduction tablets after my first couple of drinks, over the counter stuff that is very easily available, but this doesn't seem to work with any consistency. Essentially, you would need very powerful drugs to counteract the effects of excessive drinking.

Short answer: we all need to drink less. Lame.

I THINK I HAVE THE ANSWER!
I have the same problem. When I was a young teenager I drank like crazy and could wake up the next day and do it all over again. Now, even a few SIPS of anything will make me sick for 1 - 3 days afterwards. I've had to completely stop drinking which I'm quite bitter about because I really enjoy a cold beer here and there. BUT, I've went to the doctor and had all sorts of tests done, and it turns out I have an enzyme deficiency in my liver that causes my body to not be able to process alcohol properly. This was caused by the heavy drinking I did as a teenager. I seriously doubt, as the doctors do, that it will get better. Unfortunately, I'm forced to be alcohol free or face the hangover from hell. You sound like you have the same problem, so I'd ask for a blood test like I did.

My story is a bit different i am older i can not drink for months and months and when i do its not much because i am a lightweight drinker. But i do enjoy a couple glasses of wine or one rum and coke but now just recently i have a half a glass of anything and i am so nausous all day. I dont understand it at all i have had my times of partyingn and drinking but when i was much younger and not a constant thing. Its sad becasue sometimes i do want a glass of wine to unwind after a rough work week or when out with others but the nausous starts before i can even finish the one glass and i am so sick all day. An answer would be helpful!!!

Same problem
I'm a 16 year old girl. (i shouldn't be drinking, i know. but thats irrelevant).
Every time i drink, even one sip or one shot, i get violently sick the next day.
NO other hangover symptoms, just extreme nausea and vomiting that lasts until the nighttime.

now, i know its not a typical hangover because i am not a lightweight by any means, i actually used to drink twice as much as my friends and be fine. (i started drinking a little over a year ago). When it happens, i drink so little that i cant even feel the effects of the alcohol, but still i wake up vomiting the next morning.
Once i even vomited the next morning after a party where i didn't drink ANYTHING.

i am small, 5'3 and 100 lbs. alcoholism is extremely common in my family. although at this rate, i am worried that i am done drinking for the rest of my life. I dont want to go through college and everything without being able to drink.
I would really like to figure this out.

I had the problem and actually posted on here months ago. I spent a lot of money on diagnostic tests and found nothing wrong. So, I just started taking probiotics and milk thistle and I am 100% better!!! Such a relief. I don't know which one is working, but I'm not getting of of either to find out! You can get them over the counter at any pharmacy. They're just supplements!

HI
I am 19.I also got that kind of problem that i vomit very often in the next day after i drink at night. But I have a way to solve this problem but it can not be effective on you obviously. But i am sure that it make u feeling better.So, what my way is I eat sugar a lot in the early morning if I already drink last night. It cover you to vomit or less vomiting in this day.

Tips, contributing factors. I can relate.
I'm another one. I'm eighteen, and about six months ago this started happening. I used to be able to drink fine, but then I would have a few drinks feel mildly nauseous and not be able to feel the effects of the alcohol, I could feel the haze and slow motor skills, but ever the in attitude that goes with it, I was always emotionally sober.
Here are a few pointers that I found with my personal condition, and how they might be contributing factors.

-It started six months ago, around this time I struggled with bulimia, this is when it started. All that stomach juice produced for food that was thrown up might have weakened my stomach lining, and it's still healing and perhaps alcohol is just too much. This makes me wonder if it ties in with some of you who said you were dieting, changed in food intake and eight might have something to do with it.

- I never have problems if I drink wine. Only spirits, particularly vodka.

-I am a BIG coffee drinker, and often get the runs because if it and feel my stomach clenching to digest it. My excessive coffee drinking probably started six months ago too.

-eating makes the nausea subside, but it's so difficult to get it down and sometimes diesnt work and it comes up.

-vomit is green (bile)

-also, sorry for disgusting details, I have had thrush come and go a couple of times, maybe this has something to do with yeast and acid levels?

-the nausea comes and goes, extremely sick, then vomit, temporary relief, then the cycle starts again.

What helped me, is good food. This might sound bad, but spicy food can help sometimes, I know what your thinking, but it is good for the stomach to digest something powerful like that and helps kick it back into gear. STAY AWAY FROM DAIRY! Think of a food you really want and eat it slowly. Bit by bit, if you feel sick stop then wait until you can nibble more. Eating is the key.

Now time to go to a doctor for me. :/

I use to be able to drink 5-6 (10-12 shots) of vodka mixed with tonic every single night. A 28 years old male, I experienced the same symptom described by readers; including vomiting, irritable bowel movement, cold sweat, lost of appetite, grim and dull looking complexion, depressed, dark circle under eyes, lack of alertness, weight gain despite not eating much, bloated looking face, and fatigue all day; having looking at photo of myself few years ago, I realized I need to get back to healthy regime. The feeling of "What if I have this or that illness simply make me stressed out" so I went for a check up at the doctor, get blood check and urine check. The best advice doctor given me is to stop drinking completely until feeling better, make sure alcohol have not done damage to your stomach and liver; specially internal bleeding. Spirits with high alcohol content are simply poison to the mind and the body, I want to live for another 60 years so one way or another, I am now forcing to eat organic food, multivitamins, very little meat in the diet and detox once a month, gym, yoga and house cleaning on weekend to sweat all out; meal replaced with organic juice 3 times a day, no sugar, no salt, and daily dosage of multivitamins and wheat grass juice. My skin is now looking radiant, my appetite is back to normal without nausea and teary eye. For the first time in over 8 years I am feeling rejuvenate and healthy, that feeling are both physical and mentally comforting specially you finally realized human body are fragile and we have to take good care of our own health!

It didn't help me. I went out last thursday had half a shot of vodka at my crib and half a (vodka coke) i dumped the rest. We went out to a party. I was offered a shot of captain. I had maybe 3 more after that with in time and two beers. PS WINE does not do this to me!!! but i also space wine time out more. So I had about 7 drinks in 3 hours. I also only blew a .15 directly after I left the party. I was SOO sick the next day. I ate felt awful and drank water. I felt like throwing up. I normally do at 4pm the next day... My BF told me to try smoking some weed and it would help the nausea. Hey, guess what... it didn't help. I went home at midnight that night still feeling terrible. I finally got up and took the prescription anti-nausea medicine. the instant it started to melt on my tongue I started vomitting (ironically seeing how its suppose to prevent that....) anyways, I threw up what I had ate 10 hours previously. It was all black. It's weird because I was drinking fluids and I was peeing from that but my stomach just couldn't digest the food. It was like it was coated with something. Im going to say blood possibly since my vomit was black but thats a guess. it could have been the food. but I felt better after that. The next day I still felt terrible. It was a 2 day hangover from hell. The episode before this one that caused me not to drink for awhile was baddd! All i had was maybe 4 or 5 beers and 1 AMF. The next day around 2pm I started to throw up every half hour and it increased to every 15 mins. I almost had to drink water just because the dry heaving was painful on all my muscles. I was in tears from the pain of throwing up soo much. at 2am it was still going on and I went to the ER i thought i surely had alcohol poisoning. They rehydrated me with an IV and gave me Nausea medicine through the IV. I stopped throwing up at 4am. The doctor claims it wasn't alcohol related (bc of how long it was lasting) but she has no idea. this happens to me 75% of the time i drink. I was never a drinker like everyone else. My first drink was in college. I maybe had the throw up hangover a handful of times then. Now its reoccurring. Our frank sinatra wine and cheese party I had maybe an entire bottle and a half of wine and 4 shots of tequila. I was perfectly okay minus the headache the next day. I'm trying to figure out if its diet related like previously mentioned or maybe its the alcohol type. Beer will mess me up... real bad sometimes. I don't know but I wrote down what im going to ask my doctor next week:
1. a blood test for an enzyme deficiency
2. ask about gastrotitis and IBS (hoping its neither)
3. candida diet?
lastly, when i do eat certain salads or raw vegetables I get an uneasy feeling in my stomach... I always assumed I was allergic to these foods because my gums get irritated when i eat the raw fruit and veggies too. I also apparently am part of the 2% population with a geographical tongue so maybe i am part of that % of population that has an enzyme issue too. I am of European decent (american by several several generations) and my sisters can drink like germans. (im czech, english, irish, and polish.)
If i bookmark this site i will definitely get back to you after my doctors appointment. after all, i did just write a novel. I owe it to you if you read it.

OH YEAH, I can't/never have been able to throw up while drunk the night before. no matter how much I drank. My body just doesn't know when to say "throw-up" or i clearly never drink sooo much that it needs to the night before. I wish i had that ability to do so. I also wish i could force myself but i seriously can't do it. (dont know how you bulimics do it)
So, has throwing up the night before been an issue for any of you? or have still thrown up the night before and still suffer the hangover from hell the next day?

Snap had this problem on and off for three years now. I'm a 21 year old female. I'm never ever sick on a night out but often very sick the next day. I often wake up from a need to be sick then spend the day being sick every 20/30minutes, sometimes if i'm lucky sleeping inbetween. It's werid because for a while i think it became a psychological thing as well, and that's what people started putting it down to, but it's clear it's not just that now (as i sometimes wake up and have to instantly be sick) I do find eating alot the day before i go out helps, and drinking water during the night, but it's no definite for the next day. I also find if i go to bed feeling sick then i normally wake up feeling fine. Sometimes trying to eat the next day makes me instantly sick, but it depends on what the food is. After being sick a few times i normally try and get out of the house and go for breakfast to take my mind off it but sometimes it backfires (i've been sick in the street before) but after eating something and having a sugary drink i normally recover after an hour or so. It's crap and i'm really jealous of my friends who are always fine but i'm kind of used to it now, and as i'm not willing to stop drinking completely (just yet) i have to accept its a risk of drinking the night before.

My friends nag me to see a doctor but as it's self inflicted i don't really see the point, i know what the advice would be! but it's good to find others who also have the same problem!

I'm a 35 year old female with all the same symptoms. I have a very healthy diet, am in decent shape and stay well hydrated.

I used to drink pretty heavily. Now, I'll barely touch a drink. When I do, regardless of what kind of alcohol, I will wake up feeling fine for a while. The longer I'm up, the worse I start to feel. It will begin with a headache, then get nauseous, and will throw up multiple times the entire day. Unable to keep pepto and water down; needless to say is a miserable experience. It get to the point where I am throwing up bile. This has been going on for the past six months. I would love to know what to ask for when I do go see a doc. I live in the Middle East and some of the doctors here aren't very good.

I get that my drinking days are done but, I still would like to enjoy a night out and not have to worry about salvaging an entire day to have it.
