Re: Hangovers-effect on Blood Pressure
Yes. I've been there. Booze makes BP go down in the short term, but later when the body is metabolizing the alcohol (hangover stage), BP goes up. Doctors are not 100% sure why it happens, but evidence suggests it has to do with affecting blood movement to and from the heart, and it does something to the manner in which liver and kidneys function (both of which regulate blood pressure).
The good news is, your BP should go down as the hangover ends and the body finishes metabolizing the booze.
