Excessive yawing, tired while drinking alcohol, slightly overweight. Why is it happening?

While drinking alcohol, even the first drink, I yawn excessively and then get so tired, I fall asleep in the chair. I m healthy, 47 years old, female, slightly overweight (about 30 pounds). Until Jan 2011, I drank 3 minimum glasses of mixed drinks a night, usually whiskey, but stopped after back surgery last Jan. In June, I stopped taking pain medication and tried to have a drink but immediately got headaches . Now I don t drink regular at all but when I do have a drink, I yawn alot and then fall asleep - can t keep eyes open type of fall asleep.

We understand your concerns

None of problems you mentioned are relted to medicine side effect or your bck problem. I can clearly suggest it as a psychological problem.

It seems that you are yawning excessively because you get bored too soon. You are interested in drinking. Whenever we are not interested in any activity, we get bored and automatically yawns and drift to dozing. Stop drinking and be active throughout the day. Consult a psychologist. I can help you. Come with details through "Ask a doctor" link in this website.

Wish you speedy recovery
