hi, for the last 5 or 6 years i think i have become allergic to alcohol. even if it is in mouthwash. about a week after coming into contact with alcohol i start feeling weak, sick, bloated, my tongue feels slightly inflamed and the worst of all a weird weak trippy feeling which then turns into a full blown sensation where i feel weak and hot all over and have flashbacks to nothing significant lasts about 10-20 seconds each time, it feels like i am on drugs (really trippy). this goes on for about 5 days getting more frequent 'trips' each day. the last time it happened (18 months ago) i had the usual trippy sensation but after 4 days my lungs froze solid and i felt my heart rate drop to almost nothing then i had a big kick of adrenalin in my body and everything was fine, this lasted for about 20 seconds and repeated one more time then nothing. i am now a few days into another episode of this feeling exactly the same. my blood pressure during a 'trip' was 180/110 pulse 78, immediately after it ended it was 156/100 pulse 92. any ideas what's going on? needless to say i avoid alcohol, but may stumble upon it without knowing.
