Sweating anxiety after drinking whisky.
Hello, I am 26 years old male. I tend to sweat a lot which is linked to my hypoglycemia which triggers sweating if I am too high/low in blood sugar. I had a very instant reaction to some whisky I drank whilst out in the pub yesterday. I took a few swigs of a whisky on ice, and in a matter of about 40 seconds, I could feel my face flush, sweat on my forehead and my nose. Initially, I didn’t think much of it, thinking I was just a bit flushed, then I excused myself to the bathroom and noticed sweat was running down my face, my nose was completely wet and it was a lot more than a hot flush. What can I do if the same situation arises? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
@khalial Hello, it happens when you have an empty stomach. Alcohol can do exactly what you described when there is no food to absorb the straight alcohol. The stomach reacts violently when no food is there to help absorb the alcohol. It's whiskey and extremely strong for an empty stomach. Eat a meal before drinking next time. Also With alcohol intake, when the heart rate speeds up, the blood vessels in the skin tend to widen. This process is called vasodilation. Dilated blood vessels cause the skin to feel warm and flushed. This can trigger the release of sweat. Thank You!
