As if I didn’t already know this.
I always thought that it was just the “Asian Glow” that I get whenever I take a sip of anything with alcohol. I just usually get all red and flushed and after about an two hours or so – it all goes away. However, this weekend – I got a little too carried away and drank a glass
or two of wine for two nights in a row. And even with the symptoms, it was worth it! 😀
Here are my Alcohol Allergy Symptoms:
- My heart rate goes up.
- I get really red.
- My nose gets congested.
- My face goes numb and a little swollen.
- I get nauseous.
- I get itchy hives and rashes.
It has been a long time since I drank anything alcoholic in two consecutive nights. And now that I truly know that I am allergic – I will remember to limit my drinking to once a week at best and always in moderation.
There will always be chocolate anyway. 🙂
