How long can alcohol poisoning last

Common Questions and Answers about How long can alcohol poisoning last


Avatar m tn Think of it as getting lucky this time. There are only so many times you can drink until you have alcohol poisoning without some permanent damage to your liver. Take it from someone that knows. Diagnosed 03-23-10 end stage cirrhosis.
Avatar n tn I am wondering about brain damage resulting from isolated heavy drinking nights. I have read that if you drink a ridiculous amount and narrowly escape death you may have irreversibly damaged your brain. I can't find anywhere on the internet information about this that could help me figure out whether I have brain damage from alcohol.
Avatar n tn How long? No one can predict how long a person will live. Each person's liver disease is unique. Only a hepatologist with full knowledge of a person's health situation can even estimate how long they may have before they die from End-Stage Liver Disease or liver cancer. I can tell you that if you develop liver cancer and it is not treated and it spread outside of the liver typical the person has less than 6 months to live.
Avatar n tn My girlfriend is 20, and since highschool she has had a severe reaction to drinking alcohol. I don't know exactly how much she typically drank in highschool to cause the severe vomitting. I do know that at least for the last year and a half, often after only 3 drinks, she will wake up the next morning (or in the middle of the night) and vomit over and over again until finally yellow colored bile is coming out.
Avatar m tn I know thats what it is because of how serious this has become. I can barely finish work and collapse in bed staying there till the next morning only to still have this extremely foggy fuzzy head and not speaking and functioning.
Avatar f tn You shouldn't be mixing Xanax with alcohol or your blood pressure meds.Plus, the amount of alcohol that you drank at once could cause alcohol poisoning resulting in death.
Avatar m tn You *consumed more alcohol* than you think. You are a college student and sound like a studious one. The answers to the questions you ask encompass more information than you realize. In this case you want facts rather than anecdotal experience. Why not read about this yourself not only for your sake, but a friend could unknowingly do the same thing.
Avatar n tn Can someone answer this. How long does hydrocodine show up in your system for a drug test. I take this drug for the pain I get with Lymes Disease. I'm starting a new job and they will ask for a drug test. How soon do I need to get off of them so it don't show up on my test. Thanks.
Avatar m tn In case anyone else has this problem, I want my experience to be available to them. There was very little to read on the DURATION of initial phenobarbital side effects on the web, and I was very frightened by what I saw. So, here's what happened with my dog. The side effects (which were severe) lasted approximately three weeks. It is possible that they can last this long. Most people say they go away in a day or two, but in very sensitive dogs, it takes much longer.
Avatar n tn I was once a bartender and loved it, made alot of friends, drank alot, One time my friend asked me if I get the shakes in the morning and at that time I said NO and they were very surprised cause they knew how much I drank. Well, after a couple of months all I did was shake from the alcohol. I couldnt even pour a drink because of the shaking. Its your body telling you it needs more alcohol. Your nervous system is slowing going and so will your liver. I am living proof.
Avatar n tn So I was just wandering if anyone on here knows how long alcohol pains can last for and which part of the body do they affect the most? Thanks in advance!
Avatar f tn Try to find a doctor that will work with you on this so you are under good medical supervision- or a compound pharmacist who knows how to do saliva tests for this. 3. Candida overgrowth in the system can also make alcohol intolerance a big problem. It can mimic GERD, RA, cause SIBO or IBS, chronic sinus infections, infertility, hypothyroidism, etc. Candida support is a great website that tells a lot about it.
Avatar n tn He is not aware that I know. How long does the drug stay in one's system? Can we, as parents, buy a drug test to randomly give him? How dangerous is this drug? How can we tell if he is under the influence?
363682 tn?1299492962 from the yeast dying, which is described by flu-like symptoms and most notable a headache. Not sure how the alcohol comes into play, although alcohol does further lower blood sugar. When I drink more sugary drinks I don't get much of the headache. Have you been on lots of antibiotics? Those folks are at higher risk for more yeast issues.
498656 tn?1213450519 If you are drinking yourself into alcohol poisoning on a regular basis - it won't take very long. I don't really know of any advice that anyone here can give you except to say good luck. Good luck.
401095 tn?1351395370 I would hate to think I could never drink socially but the last thing i need is an alcohol problem/i am a people person and many times alcohol is involvedin lots of social functions...alcohol seems to get some people in trouble even more than pills...
Avatar m tn Yes, oh yes, alcohol is an issue here. I would be most worried about the amount of alcohol She is drinking. Granted, anxiety is an issue that needs to be addressed but as far as I know, people don't die from "anxiety" but they sure can die from alcohol poisoning (among other problems that come from over-drinking that kill people in the long term), That amount of alcohol is alarming.
Avatar n tn For those of you out there who have finished tx, how long after you took your last Riba, did you begin to feel like yourself again. At this point, I don't even remember what "myself" feels like. I am only 3 days out and feel exactly as if I had taken shot on Friday and pills all weekend. I expect it to be a while, just don't know how long.
Avatar n tn We all know that alcohol can cause damage to a healthy liver if you drink too much. So why risk it with an already compromised liver? You can be social without the alcohol. If you had lung cancer would you smoke? Something to think about.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed recently with Stage 3 CKD with a GFR of 40, SCARED TO DEATH, I am 67 these figures went from 55 four months ago to 40 now. I have been reading MADLY about how long I can live what diets to do. Your story is making me feel a bit better. I watch for swelling in ankles, etc. and foam in urine, itching, nothing so far. except for maybe a couple bubbles in toilet. I don't eat bananas, brussel sprouts, watch my salt, don't drink that was years ago, no smoking for 1 1/2 yrs.
457617 tn?1254484677 Usually it is excessive alcohol or drugs that cause this part of the liver test to be high. A normal alcoholic will have a reading of 4 to 6 time the normal level. My reading for the gamma is a massive 10 times what it should be. I have been asked twice now by medical staff if i am a alcoholic and when i tell them that i am tee total and have been for years, they look at me with dismay and cant work out why my readings are so high. It wasnt until the doctor said.
Avatar n tn From what I can tell, Protaphane is a long-acting insulin and may last for about 24 hours. According to the manufacturer (Novo Nordisk), Novorapid is a formulation of insulin aspart starts working in about 20 minutes and lasts for 3-5 hours. Novorapid is one of the newer insulins and many folks experience its quicker onset than their previous short-acting insulin. It might be that you need to eat more when you drink because your insulin is acting faster than you're accustomed to.
Avatar n tn Now, I have turned to Alcohol for the last 7 months EVERYNIGHT, mostly 1/2 bottle of 750lt rum or vdka. Is it possible to taper? What about cold turkey?
Avatar m tn Your GP has been correct about everything she/he has said about liver disease. Cirrhosis vs temporary reversible liver damage. So that says something about their knowledge at least in this area. Twenty percent to 30% of the general population in the western world suffer from (NAFLD) Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease. A form of fatty liver disease not caused by alcohol but with the same result of fatty build up in the liver.
Avatar n tn The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in 1997, over 16,000 fatalities from traffic accidents were attributed to drunk driving. There are also a number of alcohol-related deaths from acute alcohol poisoning and accidents, which are reported on college campuses with increasing frequency.
Avatar n tn I feel alot of paranoia now, more than I had ever felt. I am suspicious of people. I can not complete a long-term task like school. I feel as though my thoughts are delayed and some days I feel sorta stoned. If anyone is comming to this page to make a decision to or not to trip on robotusin, by all means dont. Look around you and think about would you like to be as I descibed uptop. Constantly living in a mental cage where you can not escape.
162948 tn?1205256292 My question is if that is normal once it has been removed and how long does it last. I had it in for over a year but wanted it removed because my husband and I are planning for another baby. So I have one more question, how long could it take to conceive once it is removed? and is it safe to try the first month that it has been removed?
Avatar f tn I feel like I have lost the person I was and no matter how hard I look or how hard I try, she is never coming back. I feel a little like an empty shell that is simply going through the motions of living. I am not so teary anymore, I just feel so constantly exhausted and apathetic, I am always in some form of pain, be it back ache, head ache, nausea, stomach ache, chest pain. I have been hospitalised twice in the past 6 months, once for a kidney infection and once for pneumonia.
Avatar n tn Consuming alcohol may cause a person with pre-existing liver problems not to have the ability to process alcohol and thus cause what is termed as alcohol poisoning. Hopefully someone from the hospital staff can give you more information as to the cause of the liver inflammation and hope he has a successful recovery.
Avatar f tn They told me that a lot of our friends didn’t want to go out with me anymore and when we did they were all secretly keeping tabs on how much I was drinking. The last thing that is making me ask this question is that there has been two occasions around a year apart when I experienced what I think was alcohol withdrawals after drinking heavily… the first was with a group of friends at a friends house whilst her parents were away...
