Alcohol and Loud Music
LAR666 posted:
I'm sorry if I'm posting in the wrong area but this is the only section that I could find even remotely close about consumming food or anything that I can relate to consumming alcohol. I'm 21 and am familiar with drinking alcohol, I have no normal problem with it. My tolerance is fine and I don't drink too often. But when I tried to search a problem I've been having I can't find any information, in fact I find the opposite. Even before I was 21 I had been drinking even in public locations if they did not card me, I don't want judgements only helpful comments, I have been drinking for a few years now and never really been drunk and can normally consume several glasses without even getting a little nauseous or anything. But when I went to some night clubs for my 21st and since then when I've been at a location where the music is very very loud one glass of wine will make me sick and throw up. When I look this up the only information I can find is that loud music increases alcohol consumption but that isn't the case in my experience. What could cause this??

Sounds like you might want to try one of physiological boards, but let me take a shot at it.

So, I understand that your basic question is why one glass of wine will make you feel sick when you drink it in a location where there is a lot of really loud music playing? That sounds like an interesting problem. I can think of three possibilities, but a doctor type person would have more insight on this.

A number of things can make you feel sick when drinking. Dehydration does it, as does poor quality alcohol with more impurities/sulfites/etc in it. I can tell you that when I drink cheap wine it makes me feel pretty bad pretty fast. The loud music could be messing with your equilibrium. Good luck finding an answer!

Hiya and welcome,

I can't help but think that sometimes it might even be the atmophere of where we are drinking and how it affects us.

I think you should talk to your doctor about this.
