Even though the thought of a Bloody Mary may appeal to you, a Virgin Mary is a much better choice the morning after. The worst thing to do is to have another drink say doctors because although temporarily it helps your symptoms, it hurts in the long run. Hangovers make you feel horrible because alcohol is toxic, and you need to give your body a chance to recover. That morning drink could lead to an even worse hangover the following day.
Alka-Seltzer , the famous fizzy medicine contains sodium bicarbonate (also known as baking soda), which will help settle a queasy belly by neutralizing stomach acid. Still, other ingredients, notably aspirin and citric acid, may irritate your stomach after a night of heavy drinking.
There’s no scientific evidence that a heaping helping of bacon and eggs will ease hangover anguish, even though many people swear by itbut there’s a good chance it WILL give you heartburn. instead try easy-to-digest foods such as toast or cereal.Eat light and stay hydrated is the key!
If you’re a regular coffee drinker, skipping java when you’re hung over may—or may not—be a good idea because you may wind up layering a pounding caffeine-withdrawal headache on top of your hangover woes when you miss your regular morning fix.
That said, caffeine narrows your blood vessels and boosts blood pressure which may make the hangover worse. If you drink coffee regularly, you might try a very small amount in the morning. Wait 30 to 60 minutes and see how you feel.
Water and sports drinks
Conventional wisdom holds that the dehydration caused by heavy drinking is what makes you feel so sick the next day. In fact, experts actually know very little about what causes a hangover. Potential culprits include disrupted biological rhythms or even alcohol withdrawal, and research suggests that congeners—toxic substances found in alcohol, especially dark liquors such as whiskey—may also play a role.
Nevertheless, replacing the fluid you’ve lost will likely help you feel a little less miserable. Juice, water, Gatorade, all those things—they’re going to make you feel better say doctors.
Take pain relievers
These include ibuprofen (Advil and similar drugs) and naproxen (Aleve). Or you can try over-the-counter remedies specifically aimed at PMS like Pamprin and Midol. These often combine some sort of pain reliever with caffeine.
Exercise (insert laugh here)
A gentle workout could help you feel better, if you can manage it (and that’s a big if).
Think you can “sweat out” the alcohol and other toxins you may have consumed during a night of partying? Think again. A sauna can cause potentially dangerous blood vessel and blood flow changes in your body. The last thing you need is to disrupt the normal blood-flow patterns by extreme heat according to medical professionals.
People sleep poorly after a night of drinking. Alcohol will put you to sleep quickly, but when it begins to wear off several hours later, the withdrawal your body feels can disrupt sleep and jolt you awake. Although sleep deprivation won’t by itself cause a hangover, it definitely can make the symptoms feel worse.
If you have the luxury of “sleeping it off” the next day, do so. Your foggy brain and achy body will thank you.
