Worst Hangovers In My Life

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to ask if anyone wakes up with a massive hangover if they've been glutened ( I know it's not gluten this time, but still, shorthand for "ate something really bad")? I'm starting to figure out I have a problem with potato starch and flour. At the weekend I had a fair bit of it and it made me feel horrendous. I woke up the next day, with the worst hangover in my life, and I've had a few in my time.

I'd had no booze ( to add insult to injury ) and just felt incapable of functioning, massive headache which got worse when I turned my head. You know, all the classic, "you must have had a good time last night" symptoms, except I didn't, all I had was a gluten-free home made scone. The injustice... ;)

Oh, and my body felt like I'd just played a 90 minute hockey match or something. In fact it felt exactly like that, the day after a sports match followed by "socialising". Something I havent done for years.

This has happened a couple of times, with dairy and now potato flour.

Conversely, guzzled half a bottle of wine with my better half on her 40th on Sunday with no ill effects the next day...

Is this a common thing?

I have had more than a few mornings like that after eating something with gluten, dairy, soy. Oddly sometimes the worst offenders are specialty gluten-free products. Thinking it might be soy in them.

That's the way it is for me too. I think my body is coming across all sorts of new ingredients and is having a hissy fit when it deals with them for the most part. Hoping this will pass, as it's pretty miserable when it happens/

I experience the same thing. Now I wonder how many of those hangovers were just gluten exposures combined with booze. Maybe I don't even know what a real hangover feels like.
