My adult daughter has started experiencing flu like symptoms; fever, chills and nausea after she drinks any sort of alcohol. She is a very occasional drinker, each time it happened this summer, she was attending a party, and had had only one drink. Each time was different, she has had the same reaction with beer, wine and mixed drinks. The symptoms appear very quickly after she has the drink. The next morning she is fine. Has anyone ever hear of this?

  • I have heard of this with a couple scenarios..One could be an overload of Candida yeast in the body... if this is the only symptom she's having I would talk to a Naturopath about this possibility. You can also pick up Candida flushes from a health food store.If she's got a miriad of other symptoms which you may/may not think are related, it is also one of the symptoms of Lyme disease, a tick borne bacterial infection. Has she ever been bitten by a tick that you are aware of? Check out Lyme disease too... Good luck!

Has anyone ever hear of this?I am 30 years old and this has just started happening to me. One beer and my whole body starts to hurt, chills, and a low grade fever. The next day I am fine. Also on the second day after the beer, I get a bright red rash under my arms for a day or two. Then I am fine. I have had drinks since I was 14 and never had an issue, now at 30 one drink and I am in sever pain. If you find out anything, please let me know. Thanks so much!
