If it was me, I'd know that wine is high in salicylates, and would make me sick for that reason. I can't tell you why you react.

How would I know if I was allergic to these things? Also, I get sick with any type of alcohol...I've even tried gluten-free rum and triple distilled vodka with club soda and I still feel horrible...
Thanks for your advice..

I can actually tolerate vodka better than before. I don't drink very often but I have found that vodka doesn't even really give me a buzz at all anymore and it doesn't make me feel hungover no matter how many I have.
I have no idea why my reaction to alcohol changed so much.

I have a hard time with all alcohol now too, the next morning I feel like someone filled my veins with lead. I also feel the effects immediately, where before I had to have one or more drinks before I felt buzzed. Randomly I have also found that I have a harder time with red wine than white, it will often make me feel completely sick to my stomach. I still drink once in a while, I'm too stubborn to give it up, I just make sure that I have nothing to do the next day.
As you are still in the early stages of healing I would reccommend going lite (maybe one small glass of wine - 1/2 full - instead of a couple glasses) so you can really see how you react to it, how much is too much, just right, etc. And maybe switch to white for a bit.
Also, I would drink match, ie: MINIMUM of same amount of water as alcoholic drinks - better if you drink even more water. Also good if you drink at least one big glass of water before you think you will have a drink, and especially when you get home. Oftentimes you can be even a little dehydrated and it makes all the difference to how hard the alcohol hits you and how bad you feel afterward.
I would also recommend taking something like an Emergen-C or a multi vitamin either before or after your night out, it will give you a good boost of vitimins (especially B's) that your body needs to replenish after the alcohol.
I'm not trying to advocate drinking here, I have just found that these things generally make a big difference in how I feel after I've had a drink. Good luck!

I can have problems with wine. Certain wines can contain casein (a milk protein) and sulphites. I am allergic to milk and metabisulphite so I'm assuming that was my problem. I have had certain wines with no problems. I have found a list of vegan wines: http://vegans.frommars.org/wine/

I still drink but I have only one glass over the course of an evening and I have a H2o chaser as I drink the wine. Pretty much its a sip of one and a gulp of the other (you guess which is which!). And I'm doing ok with it that way. All alcohol effects me much faster now but wine is the very worst one for me.

I was getting much better and have not drank in a couple of months and the other night decided to have a couple of glasses of red wine. The next morning I was so sick and I am still feeling crappy, dizzy, and just out of it. This happens every time I drink red wine and I was wondering what might be going on because I thought wine is gluten free. Also, could it just be the alcohol? Has this happened to anyone else and will it get better as I heal? I have only been gluten-free for 6 months...

could be a number of factors.. primary issues with wine and most processed foods is the chemical sulfides. there's too many in most processed foods.. alcohols and many other things where it really should not be any more. there was suppose to be a regulation on how many sulfides are safe and what numbers aren't.. it's been known to make people really sick and also cause death in bad reactions.
