Fine wine and menopause

Posted , 8 users are following.

I love a good Rose' like anyone else every now and then and the first cold sip takes the edge off! Now that I'm in menopause I can't drink it because two days later I feel sick, nauseas, horrible. And that's for one or two glasses. HELP! Anyone else have to give up their one favorite poison pleasure? Can this passage get any worse?????

HAPPY SUMMER LADIES. Sincerely, Sad Girl

    me, me,me! SO frustrating, after just two glasses I sleep badly, get soooo hot in the night and feel a bit jaded the next day, I SO miss a good old drunken Saturday night but its not worth it anymore. Only thing that helps is loads of water and tons of food if Im drinking more but this just adds to my already increasing waistline! My poison is red wine.

    Yep. Used to drink prosecco and white wine - now a single glass makes me feel rough. Sticking now to the lower alcohol lagers or vodka with lime and soda. Doesn't have quite the same pleasure in it but at least it doesn't feel like I'm completely missing out.

    Yep! Me too!

    I can't have one glass in an evening without feeling dreadful the next day... not fair as before all this I could drink a few glasses and be fine!

    G&T doesn't ususlly affect me as badly but last night i had two G&T's watching the Eurovision Song Contest and today I've felt bad all day... or is that down to watching Eurovision, and nothing to do with drink, as the UK came last!! 😉

    Seriously though, I wish i could just have a glass of my fave tipple without repercussions! 😦

    I love wine but noticed about 2 years ago that every time I had more than a glass I would wake up during the night with pulsating skin, extreme heat and rapid heavy heartbeat. I had no idea what was going on but it happens every time I drink wine. I started to realise its peri after changing my meds and running to my doctor over it. The rapid and heavy heartbeat was awful and very scary. It doesnt happen if I drink any other alcohol, just wine.
