Allergies vs alcohol

Does this seem normal to you fellow allergy sufferers? Yesterday I was feeling ok compared to the heavy allergy days I've had this year. So I had 1 vodka cooler, no even but 30min later it was game over for me. My facial sinuses seemed to way over react almost as if I layer down in ragweed. My neck shoulders and upper back tensed and I even had an anxiety attack where my right hand and foot went numb( seems to happen to me when I get these attacks). Also it felt like I crashed hard off sugar I got really really tired? What the he'll is my body doing?? Is this still allergies?

Re: Allergies vs alcohol

Alcohol increases blood flow to the face, which is why people's faces turn red when drunk. If your sinuses are already swollen from allergies, this can make things worse.
