Re: Alcohol intolerance?
I'm diagnosed with chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. When I drink alcohol I get sick; this has been happening for a few years, since I started having symptoms. The alcohol sits in my stomach and feels like it's not being digested. In fact, I get a full feeling as though my stomach is expanding or like I seriously overate, even if I have not eaten. My glands do swell slightly also, and sometimes I feel like I have a fever even if I don't. I don't get "drunk" or tipsy at all, just very uncomfortable and sick, and the last time I tried to drink a glass of wine I ended up vomitting it back up, so it never even got into my system. It's like my body cannot digest it anymore. Needless to say I do not drink at all. No doctor has ever commented on this being a symptom of anything, but I've read that a lot of people with cfs and fibro experience this.
