Stress Management/crying??


I was out drinking with friends.  Then started throwing up. I hadn't had that much to drink so was worried.  Decided to go home and thats when it started!! I started to cry uncontrollably.  I could not make it stop even by trying to control my breathing.  I went to the hospital as i thought someone had put something in my drink but 2 hours later all tests were fine.  They gave me something to relax me.  I went home to sleep and spent the next day in a daze.  Please tell me what it could be??

Well it may have been an anxiety attack were you feeling anxious or nervous at the time?

the only other thing i can think of is had you taken any medicine before you went out? Even cough medicine can react with alcohol and have the most strange effect. i should know when i was a teen ager i had a cough, took some medicine, went out drinking. Hours later I was hysterical, crying and even tried to jump out of a window.

Other than that I would say to put it to the back of your mind and just put it down to one of those odd things. If it happens again then seek help from your normal Gp, who may want to do further tests. but my guess is that this was a one off. Drink can have all sorts of strange effects on us depending on the situation etc.
