In Reply to: Alcohol Allergy??????? posted by Roy on February 18, 2000 at 12:04:10:

: Whenever I drink alcohol,(particularly beer) I turn a splotchy red on my neck and chest. I also become stuffed up, like you would if you were somewhere with alot of pollen. Is this an allergy of some sort or am I the only one with this problem?? Any help you could offer would be appreciated. Thanks, Roy

Hi,
seems a few people are having similar problems.
I have been drinking for the last 10 years. Suddenly I developed this allergy as soon as i had even as little as half a glass of beer
the reaction is an immediate flushing feeling, heaviness in the chest, palpitations, heaviness in thehead, stomach cramps and a general feeling of malaise. It almost feels as if I have a rapid decrease or increase in blood pressure. The allergy stayed for a month then was gone for a month when it came back and stayed for 2 months then was gone for 10 days, came back and stayed for 3 months and was gone for 3 days and since then for the last 6 months has just stayed and has not gone away. I am curious as to why its staying time kept increasing and the time i could drink kept decreasing. More importantly I enjoy an occasional binge, as it is the only thing that I really enjoy and do not relish the idea of never being able to have a drink. I want to know what this is all about, causes and ways to cure it. Fellow sufferers can send me a mail, or post any other resources I can look up
thanks,
Pan.
