Hi, wondering if anyone on here can help. My dp has been experiencing what we think are mild alcohol withdrawals - feelings of panic and anxiety, racing heart, nausea etc which seem to come on about 10 hrs after his last drink. He has been drinking up to 20 units a night. Just wondering if anyone else has been through this and come out the other side - what helped, and how long did the symptoms last?

TIA

Those are common withdrawal symptoms. They can go on for days and your dp may experience delirium tremens at the two to three day mark.

Seek medical attention if it gets to that.
