You could be hypoglycemic, meaning you have low blood sugar!. Drinking a lot of alcohol will cause a reaction that can include difficulty breathing and other blood pressure issues!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

Did you have any other symptoms such as a rash or red splotches on your body!? I ask because this happened with my husband and he gets read splotches too!.

We determined that it is an allergic reaction which stinks because he was able to drink lots of different stuff before with no problems!.

Buy some Benadryl (sp!?) so you can take it if it happens again!. also, be careful when drinking and try to eat something before hand to see if that helps!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
