Hangover San Diego

San Diego might not be as much of a party city as its SoCal counterparts like Los Angeles, but people here still know how to have a good time. And you shouldn’t need to feel afraid to take that extra shot of tequila during your next night out just because of fear of how you’ll feel the morning after.

But even if you don’t drink much, a hangover can sneak up when you least expect it and completely ruin your day. The good news is that there are simple ways to fix it without even having to leave your home.

Here’s everything you need to know about hangovers and how to ease them, specifically in the San Diego area.

What Is a Hangover?

A hangover is a series of unpleasant symptoms that usually pop up after a night of heavy drinking. However, if you had a super fun night out and drank quite a bit, you might notice some of these symptoms start showing up the same night.

Hangovers aren’t actually caused by the alcohol you drink itself. Instead, those symptoms are a response to dehydration caused by alcohol consumption. Alcohol is a diuretic, meaning it causes you to release fluids at a more rapid rate than other liquids. This is why you tend to go to the bathroom a lot more when you’re out drinking.

Since your body is losing water quickly, you can easily become dehydrated unless you replenish those fluids with water while you drink. Regardless, the feelings of a hangover can pop up even when you feel like you didn’t drink that much.

What Are Some Hangover Symptoms? 

Not everybody feels hungover after a night of heavy drinking, but some people can feel the symptoms after just having a single beer. Symptoms typically start up when your blood alcohol content reaches or hits zero.

Some common hangover symptoms include:

  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Upset stomach
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Muscle soreness
  • Stomach pain
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness or shakiness
  • Increased sensitivity to light and sound
  • Inability to concentrate

While it can sometimes feel like a hangover is about to spell the end of the world, hangovers usually go away on their own within 24 hours. And even though the symptoms can be frustrating to deal with, symptoms of a generic hangover are rarely life-threatening.

With that in mind, certain symptoms might indicate alcohol poisoning. If you notice someone exhibiting the following symptoms, you should immediately contact 911 for urgent care:

  • Seizures
  • Unconsciousness (and an inability to be woken up)
  • Low body temperature
  • Irregular breathing
  • Projectile vomiting

Most hangovers won’t do anything more than make you feel under the weather, but these symptoms are still good to know. Either way, a hangover can make you miss out on an entire day of productivity, so getting a cure as soon as possible can help you feel better than ever.

Can I.V. Hydration Therapy Provide Hangover Relief?

If you feel like you need a little immune boost to help ease yourself out of a nasty hangover, it might be because you’re dehydrated. The first order of business is usually to rehydrate. The thing is, drinking some water might not be able to help you as quickly as you want.

Drinking fluids will naturally restore lost liquids, but your body won’t be able to utilize all of the water you take in through oral consumption. This is because of something called bioavailability, which is the amount of a substance that your body can absorb and utilize when consumed.

Through oral intake, many nutrients are metabolized before they reach your bloodstream, meaning you can only use a small portion of the consumed materials. But with an I.V. drip, you can feel 100% of the benefits because the nutrients are injected directly into your bloodstream.

The I.V. Doc makes house calls, bringing the major benefits of hangover I.V. treatments right to the comfort of your home. Mobile I.V. therapy is a new way to get the rejuvenating boost of an I.V. drip without needing to go to a doctor’s office.

After your telehealth consultation, a concierge service of medical professionals will come to your home and hook you up to a personalized I.V. treatment to enhance your hydration and get you back on your feet. Our wide range of hangover remedies is formulated with a cocktail of vitamins and electrolytes to help offer fast relief from a hangover.

What Are Other Ways To Help With a Hangover?

Drip hydration with an I.V. formulation is one of the most effective ways to feel better than ever despite a horrible hangover. But even after your treatment, some simple home remedies can boost its effects and feel better for longer.

Eat Hangover-Friendly Foods

One of the reasons you might feel so horrible from your hangover is that your blood sugar is low. Now’s the time to load up on some carbohydrates to increase blood sugar levels and give yourself some much-needed energy.

Crackers and toast, or other bland foods, are great if you also have an upset stomach. But if it’s just a headache and some grogginess, noodle soups like pho or ramen are fantastic options because they also have high levels of sodium in the broth, which is an electrolyte that also stimulates thirst.

Drink More

When we say drink more, we’re not talking about taking the “hair of the dog” or drinking even more alcohol. While drinking more alcohol to cure a hangover might make you feel better temporarily, it will only make you feel worse when all is said and done.

Instead, go for water, juices, and electrolytes to stimulate thirst and help replace lost minerals.

Sleep It Off

Your hangover might feel bad simply because you’re tired. After all, alcohol can decrease your sleep quality despite its ability to make you fall asleep faster. This means you often wake up without feeling very rested the morning after a night out.

Try taking a nap — by the time you wake up, you might not feel hungover anymore.

Take a Pain Reliever

If you have a headache or muscle soreness that’s really impeding your ability to get anything done, a pain reliever might be able to help. Just be sure not to take NSAIDs on an empty stomach, as this can irritate your stomach lining.

If you do take a pain reliever alongside some food to help with a hangover, remember that pain relievers only treat the symptoms of a hangover, not the hangover itself. You’ll still need to rehydrate to feel better in the long run.

Drink Some Coffee

Coffee might have some potential anti-hangover effects in its caffeine, but regardless, it can still give you a boost of energy. Having some tea or coffee might be a simple way to help you bounce back from sluggishness.

What Other I.V. Therapies Are Available?

The I.V. Doc doesn’t just offer hangover relief. We’ve got I.V. solutions to help with everyday needs. From antioxidant therapy to boost the anti-aging compounds in your body to NAD I.V. infusions to boost energy, there is something here for everyone, even if you’re not feeling hungover.

In Conclusion

As frustrating as they are, hangovers are a common part of drinking a little bit too much. But you shouldn’t need to stop partying in the San Diego nightlife just because you’re not sure how you will feel the next day.

You can fix a hangover by drinking more fluids, eating some carbs, getting enough sleep, and taking pain relief medication.

The I.V. Doc comes directly to your door with a personalized I.V. treatment to help you rehydrate and rejuvenate to get back on your feet even faster than ever. Schedule your consultation in the San Diego area today to feel like the best version of yourself.
