A hangover is an aftereffect of consuming too much alcohol. Alcohol is a depressant and therefore, it slows down your central nervous system and can cause an upset stomach, nausea, vomiting and headaches.
A hangover starts when the body begins to break down the alcohol in your blood and stomach. The liver then metabolizes the alcohol into acetate that is then reintroduced into your bloodstream and causes all sorts of unpleasant feelings.
What Happens When We Drink Alcohol?
Alcohol primarily affects the part of the brain that controls judgment, impulse control, and emotion. Alcohol also suppresses essential regulatory systems within the body such as sleep and appetite.
While it might seem like you’re just having a good time with friends or colleagues at the bar when you drink alcohol, there are many side effects that come with it that you might not know about until it’s too late.
The effects of alcohol vary from person to person depending on weight, age, food intake, other drugs are taken, and other factors. Alcohol may cause sudden feelings of relaxation or euphoria which can lead to a binge drinking session. However, later on in the night, when alcohol levels have dropped significantly, it may cause feelings of depression or anger due to lowering serotonin levels.
What causes a Hangover?
A hangover is the unpleasant combination of symptoms that occur the morning after heavy drinking. Hangovers may include headaches, nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, tremors, etc.
There are many factors that contribute to a hangover. The alcohol in the bloodstream produces an enzyme called acetaldehyde which breaks down ethanol into acetate in the liver.
Acetaldehyde is toxic and reacts with other enzymes in the body to produce hangover symptoms.
Alcohol dehydrates us, which means we can feel thirsty or even dizzy from lack of fluids.
The body also produces a hormone called vasopressin in response to alcohol consumption which causes blood vessels to narrow and slows the production of urine.
This leads to a dehydration effect on our kidneys and can lead to a headache or a general feeling of being unwell in the morning.
The person might also feel tired or have trouble focusing because of insomnia or sleep deprivation that can be a result of anxiety, an eating disorder, emotional distress, heart disease, or another condition.
