    a lot of us are alcohol intolerant! and im not talkin a lot of it either, one drink can make me feel like i've been a host at a frat party!

    my DR said it's cause our livers don't metabolize the alcohol well anymore. i was a social drinker in my 20's had no problems.

    but the sicker i got the worse the intolerance got. ooh how I'd love a great big margarita! top shelf pleeze, on the rocks with salt ;)

    I have CFS, not FM, but like Kat0465 I became extremely sensitive to alcohol several years ago. Just like her (him?), one drink would make me feel sick for a whole day, two drinks would do me in for 2 to 3 days.

    And then my chiropractor who does muscle testing told me my liver was toxic, it was overloaded with toxins. I did a liver detox under his supervision, it took a month, and afterwards was able to enjoy a glass or two of wine without getting sick. Also, I started taking hydrochloric acid with meals and milk thistle, and believe these have helped my liver as well.
