3) Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms
Withdrawals typically start anywhere within 5-10 hours after your last drink and can last for many days after. Symptoms get more severe within 48 to 72 hours and have been reported to last for over a week after the last drink, depending on how much was consumed. Symptoms of withdrawal can include headache, nausea and vomiting, sweating, clammy skin, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and tremors.
The most dangerous withdrawal symptom is delirium tremens, which is the outcome of intense alcohol withdrawal and can induce fever, hallucinations, severe confusion, agitation, and seizures. Alcohol withdrawal can be life-threatening. Anyone who’s experiencing withdrawals should be at a detox center and under medical supervision to ensure the safety and well-being of the patient.
