I had convulsions, nausea, vomiting (to the point of bile), migraines, fever, hot and cold flushes?
I’m a 19 year old female with no medical history (besides an allergy to penicillin). Recently, I have had a reaction that has concerned me. After a night out with friends, the next day I had convulsions, nausea, vomiting (to the point of bile), migraines, fever, hot and cold flushes. I had drunk a glass of water per standard drink and had eaten before and after drinking. As this had only occurred for the first time, I decided I must have drunk too much and I left it. Recently, I went out with friends again, I had no more than 10 standard drinks over 8 hours (I have drunk more than this before with the same types of alcohol and had no reaction), however I had this reaction again, but more severe. I had all the same symptoms, but my convulsions were more severe and lasted for a longer period of time, I also was semi-conscious (fading in and out), I had some visual and audio hallucinations, and my hot and cold flushes were more extreme. Most concernedly, I felt an intense cold, stabbing pain in my liver (as in, in the specific area where I knew my liver was, and to me it felt like I could feel the entire organ go cold and shut down). This again was all the next morning, and I had eaten before and after and drank at least one glass of water per standard drink. As this reaction was more severe, with less alcohol, and with alcohol that I have drunk before but with no reaction, I am very concerned as to what is causing it. I know it isn’t the type of alcohol, the amount of water, the meal’s I ate, or the amount of sleep I had had already.
Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
In my opinion it is not a matter of type of alcohol than a matter of alcohol it self..
Your liver seems to be not tolerating alcohol metabolism and reacting to it this way…
The symptoms are early liver disorder symptoms strongly related to drinking -although it did not occur all the times- it still being inflammatory response of the liver to drinking…
An abdominal USG and liver enzymes tests can show whether there is something wrong there..
Until then avoid drinking at all and maintain healthy life style avoid fatty and high sugar foods
