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:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Anxiety
  • Dizziness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Drowsiness
  • Fatigue
  • Dry mouth
  • Muscle aches
  • Sensitivity to light or sound
  • Shakiness
  • Rapid heart rate 
  • Heartburn

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.
