I would just be interested to know if it is alcohol, thats why im hoping the Dr can do a test or something?? The reactions i have had have put me off even trying to drink anything now - to see if another alcoholic drink reacts the same - as i just felt so so ill after it.
i drank rose wine on holiday and dont recall having any serious reaction, but did have itchy skin the next day - i had previously put it down to the sun?! so maybe......oneday.....ill try that again.
im hoping i can have a drink, as it is nice occassionaly.
Cuppateajanice - that sounds awful, v scary. pleased to hear there are some things you can still drink!
Are you intolerant to anything else? My DS is intolerant to fructose - amongst other things. He was told that if he continues into adulthood with this, drinks such as wine might be a problem due to the grapes. There is also a fruit sugar list with most offending fruits with high fructose: sugar levels, so you could be more intolerant to one fruit than another. This is just a thought as it is another ingredient in some alcohol that could be a trigger.
ask for liver/pancreas enzymes test, sounds like some enzymes breaking alcohol down are not working as they used to (can happen with age) NB. the stuff in wines is sulphites which can also cause a reaction
