In Reply to: Re: Allergy to Alcohol? posted by fellow sufferer on August 04, 2000 at 17:42:25:

Hello everyone. Until tonight, I always told people I was allergic to alcohol, but didn't really know. When I have even just a half a glass of alcohol, my face starts burning and is bright red, very hot to touch, and my throat and chest get blotchy like hives. It's nice to know I have been telling people the truth, even if it was just a guess! Thanks, guys!

: Hello,

: I'm a European person, Nordic one might say, but still have what might be a version of the Asian problem. Sometimes (but not always) I get red blotches when I drink. I e I don't just go red, I go blotchily red, in really bad cases every single scar I have on my body, down to the toes, goes bright red, clearly delineated. It somestimes takes two beers, sometimes a lot more and sometimes doesn't happen at all. There are a few things I've noticed - first, that the condition is half psycho-somatic (i e as soon as you think about it, it starts coming on) ; secondly that it mostly happens when I drink "hard liqouer"; and that whenever it happens, it speeds up the pulse rate. Recently, I I've sometimes also got skipped heart beat when hung over or exerted whilst drunk, but that is probably a different issue (though my stress ECG is apparently "perfect' aside from slightly high blood pressure.) Anyone recognise these symptoms?
