Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Both alcohol and amphetamine could have caused this.
By two days, there should be no symptoms. If there is a problem as you say, you need to be examined – to rule out pre-existing asymptomatic disease.

Also the doctor should counsel regarding alcohol and drug abuse – for your physical and psychological well being.

See your doctor and have some basic work-up done – to make sure.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
