The term hangover gets thrown out quite often. How many times has a friend (or have you) said "dude, I'm so hungover"? Hangovers not only cause you to feel lousy, but they actually impose quite a bit of financial distress as well. Missed days at work, poor work performance and accidents on the job are just a few ways that hangovers affect society as a whole. But are you hungover? Are you sure?
Alcohol hangovers follow a night of drinking, period. You cannot have this specific type of hangover without the necessary precursor. To be more specific, hangovers typically occur when or just before, a person's blood alcohol content returns to zero.
So, you spent the night before drinking a bit too much. What symptoms comprise a hangover? Here are a majority, but not all, of the symptoms you may be experiencing:
- Difficulty concentrating
- Dry mouth
- Muscle aches
- Sensitivity to light or sound
- Rapid heart rate
The cause of all of these symptoms is most definitely multi-factorial. Dehydration has been linked to hangovers and does play a role in the severity of symptoms. Newer research also points to various inflammatory mediators such as cytokines, interleukins and tumor necrosis factor alpha playing a large role in the symptoms of a hangover. Hydrelief has medications that focus on the treatment of all of the underlying causes of a hangover, not just dehydration.
