Ended up drinking a bit to much last night and have been severely hung over for the past 3 hours. I can deal with the headache (sunglasses, OTC pain meds, hot shower, etc) but this upset stomach is just killing me. I'm afraid to eat anything because I know I'll just puke it right back up. Any life hacks for easing an upset stomach, specifically during a hangover?
The main reason people get stomach aches when they are hungover is because drinking a lot of alcohol raises the level of acid in your stomach. To cure this, you need to soak up the acid. Eating something dry like plain toast (nothing on it) or saltine crackers. I know you don't want to eat anything because you don't want to vomit, but these foods are not tough on your stomach, so you shouldn't have to throw up. If you do throw up, it's not all bad because vomiting can help you cure your stomach ache. Also, to avoid a hangover, try to drink lots of water before you go to sleep the night you were drinking.
