    Not Eating while Drinking

    Hey all... lately for the last 2-3 yrs I've noticed that when I drink I do not have any desire to eat. This is not being done intentially that I no of I am simply not hungry while drinking.

    This (possibly) led to my having to 2 near fainting spells & 1 complete black out which sent me to the ER & an overnight observation in the hosptal (talk about embarissin!). I was diagnosed with vasovagal syncope triggered by dehydration.

    Any thoughts on whats goin on with me would be great!

    Info: 48 yrs old... drank since I was 18 mostly weekend bingin (case of beer, 6-8 shot liquor)... the last year after a back injury, drank 3-5 glasses of wine & 2-3 shots of vodka 5-6 days a week. Daily Meds: Benicar, Crestor, Mobic, Zoloft, (Lortab, Tylinol, Cialis - as needed).

    Take care... Dave!

    Re: Not Eating while Drinking

    Well, in my experience I have never been able to eat while drinking. Thats why when we go out to dinner, we always have a soda with dinner, if we go out for drinkd the only thing I eat is pretzels and maybe fast food after done drinking. I have been drinking since 16. I always just drank socially though, so I dont know if it helps at all. We now (hubby and I) Only drink maybe once a month or less. Befoer it was just on the weekends, when going out, clubbing, bars and stuff.

    Hey Crooked,

    Empty Calories. That's your answer. Food really doesn't kill a buzz, that's a myth. Drinking alcohol is kinda like eating candy or drinking softdrinks, you feel full or it satisfies hunger. And you trully do just get full ususally.

    In the beginning, food in your stomach may slow the absorption of the alcohol into your bloodstream, so if you do a shot on an empty stomach it may hit you harder and faster, but if you drink heavily, it's not going to kill any buzz by any means.
