Sick after getting drunk. Why? Is this a normal reaction?

Hi, I had drank alcohol last night, and I m not a big drinker and didn t drink that much. I started to feel sick and have been burping repeatedly, I have also experienced shivering and felt clammy and sweaty, I felt very alert and unable to sleep till mid-morning the next day. Is this a normal reaction or have I developed an intolerance to it? Any help would be appreciated.

Now a days it is increasing in different societies but alcohol is central nervous system depressant and has many effects in acute intoxication psycological and physical also , In legal terms 100mg/dl is intoxication produced by 3 -4 drinks may be less for females. Varies in different countries.

In medical terms also this can cause even low blood sugar level known as hypoglycemia.
There is dehydration and many times gastritis which may be due to over acid in the stomach.
If some one used it regularly there are withdrawal symptoms and may become habituated to it .

DO NOT TAKE ALCOHOL and drink lot of water if stomach upset is more take some antacids commonly Gelusil or Digene if headache is there a mild analgesic would help.
Take heathy nutritious diet and fresh fruits
If in trouble then take consultation by Physician.
Good wishes for Quiting Alcohol.
