Depending on the amount of fun you had the night before, your hangover symptoms can vary in type and in magnitude. The number and scale of symptoms one suffers usually depends on how much they have had to drink the previous night. From just feeling a bit queasy... to feeling like you got hit by a truck... to not even being able to get out of bed... the experience is never fun.
Acute symptoms can include all, one or some of the following:
- Nausea, Acid Reflux, and/or Diarrhea
- Fatigue, trouble concentrating, and/or anxiety
- Trembling (the "shakes")
- Increased heart rate and/or increased blood pressure
- Decreased visual-spatial skill performance
- Severe cases: Alcohol poisoning and death
There are also chronic hangover symptoms associated with the physical effects of alcohol.
And like any drug, alcohol use can cause unwanted side effects as well.
Furthermore, just because the party is over there could still be a substantial risk to your health despite returning your blood alcohol level back to normal. If any of the underlying symptoms of a hangover are too severe you might require serious medical attention.
