Resolved Question:

Since last saturday i havent been quite right. I usually drink about 2 doubles plus mixer every night for the last 10 nights but saturday i had no alcohol and wonder if my body is not accepting this as its so used to it. Ive been feeling hot a couple of
nights this weak with an anxious feeling in my tummy and a dull ache above my breastbone, feeling queasy but all i did was go to to the loo i haven't been sick. I had one single whisky and mixer on monday and half a shandy today. Its weird but something isnt
right but its a bit difficult to explain.
