When you drink too much alcohol at night, you may wake up feeling sick the next day. The majority of people assume it’s another awful hangover, but there’s a chance that food poisoning or even alcohol poisoning could be to blame. Because both food poisoning and a hangover might induce nausea, vomiting, and headaches, determining whether you’re experiencing one of them can be tough.
A few key characteristics can help you figure out if it’s food poisoning or a hangover. If you have a fever, chills, and body aches, it’s more likely to be food poisoning. If you have a throbbing headache and feel very thirsty with a dry mouth, it’s more likely to be a hangover. Other symptoms like diarrhea are common to both conditions.
