Beer Intolerent

Post by Tommy-Darcy on Tue Jan 01, 2013 10:46 am

The 1st time it happened was about 13 months ago............I only needed to look at a pint of Amber Nectar and I would get the mother of all headaches censored! Laid off the booze for about 3 months (very hard) and gradually re-introduced it into my diet drinksallround

Now it seems to have come back censored! , and not just with Lager wee, it is now with my beloved ales too tap_fingers

Now I am not an Alcoholic but I do enjoy a pint of good ale and a pint of cordial just doesn't have the same appeal as onthehouse

What am I to do confused3

Ian,

It's called "old age" but I have no sympathy as the alternative to old age is worse! up!

Last year I discovered that whisky and wine aggravated my arthritis tap_fingers but I'm managing to bear the pain. champagne champagne

Best regards and new_year

Funnily (or not) enough I painfully discovered that my other fave tipple Morgans Spiced Rum with either caffeine free cola or ginger ale produced excruciating pain in all of my joints scratch head

I have been a very long time sufferer of Classic Migraines occurring every 2-3 months hence no caffeine, or chocky, or anything citrus, or cheese and some other dairy products, so the thought of giving up ale aswell really doesn't fill me with glee censored!

It looks like we will have to dedicate 2013 to research then!! allthumbz

The fact that "Morgans Spiced Rum with either caffeine free cola or ginger ale produced excruciating pain" is a sign of hope because if that combination causes pain then it stands to reason that some other combination will provide that pain-free state of wellbeing that we managed to achieve as younger men!
up!
I will start experimenting as soon as the headache dissipates and my joints let me get mobile! hugegrins

Hi Ian (s),

I discovered about 5 years ago that I am alcohol intolerant, in other words if I consume any form of alcohol I get a blinding head ache, this is to a lesser or greater extent depending on the drink. Worst case red wine through beers, ales, etc to least effective surprisingly enough vodka, the higher the quality the least pain.
This leads me to the conclusion that its what is 'added' to the drink (chemicals) is what does the damage. Not necessarily mixers.

Conclusion, drink sensibly and I'll stick to my Black Label! up!

Hi again,

What do I drink my vodka with? scratch head

Answer: Just ice and sometimes a slice of lemon or lime. allthumbz

A novel way to drink vodka is to do it the Russian way, bury it in the snow (or in the freezer -easier) it then goes to the consistancy of syrup, swallow a shot and feel it explode with warmth in your stomach. up!
Warning, dont put a full bottle in the freezer or it will split -too good to waste!

Cheers,

Mike D

Since childhood I had suffered with migraine and had tried every remedy known to mankind with little or no effect so_sad then some years ago I was diagnosed with slightly raised blood pressure and prescribed 50 mg of Atenolol daily. Now you may wonder where this is going in relation to the topic but bear with me. confused3

The spin off effect of taking the beta blocker was as well as lowering my B.P the migraine headaches also disapeared allthumbz and as an added bonus I was also able to imbibe more than one small glass of beer, wine, single malt etc without waking up with a splitting headache the following morning, for the first time in my life drinksallround .

When mentioning the above to the consultant who at that time was investigating the possible causes of my hypertension he replied with a smile that it's worth keeping up the medication for that reason alone.
So although my high B.P was put down to the very stressful job I had at the time I am still taking the tablets ten years on and I hasten to add with barely a headache or a hangover in the intervening years content

Cheers John up!

The recent posts explain a lot. I always thought I suffered from a leather allergy. Because every time I woke up with my shoes on I had a headache.

GOOD NEWS!

Rémy Martin Fine Champagne Cognac VSOP gives me headache almost immediately after the second nip! up! up!

This was discovered after our eldest Grandson informed us this evening that he had got married in secret earlier today; and Helen dusted off a bottle that has been saved for "Special Occasions"! allthumbz

Best regards,
drinksallround
Ian

PS
"Why Good News?" you may ask. Well, at £28 a bottle it would be a terrible situation if I discovered that I could drink it like orange juice. I would be living in poverty by the end of the month!! Whistle1

The bottle is now tucked away at the back of the cupboard again! allthumbz

i feel sorry for those people that get a headache or similar.I get gout and unless you have suffered you will not know the pain.
i have tried to vary my diet to reduce the chance of the dreaded crystals forming.
As you would expect it may be trigered by Wine or beer. Currently cutting back on red wine ,used to buy in boxes as much as a van or car could carry from Tesco in Calais. Those days have gone and no Tesco Calais to buy from anyway.
seem to be OK with a few cans of Bush .

I've had the same problem for years and changed to quality gin with (quality) tonic.

Just last month I was out on an end of term night out and tried Black Isle Organic beers - totally clear head in the morning, no headache or hangover feeling (I also suffer migraines and a beta blocker was prescribed). Try organic and dump the chemicals...................... http://www.blackislebrewery.com/

Might be able to help here!! up!

After a long session on the push-bike I often get cramps in my legs during the following night. wave

For some reason best known to science and the medical profession quinine relieves leg cramps; and the bitterness in Tonic is the added quinine! up!

As a result I always have a bottle of Tonic in the fridge ready to go! I use it to wash down and speed up the reaction of the quinine tablets prescribed by my doctor but it also comes in handy when the urge for a G&T overtakes me!

Hope this helps. allthumbz

Thanks Ian, may just have to have a go at G&T then, and perhaps more sensibly a glass of tonic before bed time up!

Perhaps we should introduce an ailments and possible cures section to the forum lol4

Beer Intolerant

Post by oldbikerider on Sun Feb 10, 2013 9:11 pm

In the old days when beer was proper beer made with good old Kentish Hops it wasn't the beer that caused the headaches but a surfeit of vitamin C.

Hops were green, anything green contains vitamin C. It is a well known scientific fact that to much vitamin C causes blinding migraines.

Can't understand those who complain of headaches nowadays after drinking beer, cos they don't use hops anymore and so there's no vitamin C in it.

Maybe there IS something else in beers which causes the headache. Tannin found in most red wines is a sure cause for migraines. I have consumed some rather expensive red wines which do not contain Tannin with no ill effect allthumbz but I am a beer man !

Th headache I get when I have some alcohol is just that......a headache, a right blinder, but just a headache !

I have suffered with classic migraines since I was 13 and know to steer clear of all manner of foods, fruits and drinks which cause them but will be damned if I can't enjoy something.............alcohol, mainly ales are my enjoyment. I am now beginning to adapt by trying different beers (no difference there then) and have actually found that I can drink 3 or 4 "Bank's Bitter" with no ill effect. However, I have one of my old favourites "Old Speckled Hen" and a headache shows up after less than half a pint...................just can' figure it out other than the strength of the "Bank's" is 3.8% as opposed to the 5% (?) of the "OSH" drinksallround
