Many of us know that feeling. You had a few drinks the night before, which you thought wouldn’t negatively impact you. The next morning, though, you wake up feeling all sorts of terrible. All of a sudden you’re filled with anxiety, which isn’t made any easier by headaches, fatigue, body aches, and other symptoms you might have from the alcohol consumption!

Mobile IV Nurses understand how it feels to be a little anxious after a few drinks. Many of us have felt exactly the same way. No one likes to have their days ruined by being in a bad mood. That’s why our team of medical professionals have made a big effort to understand more about the causes of hangxiety, and how we can address hangxiety and other hangover symptoms with IV therapy to result in a healthier, happier you.

What Is Hangxiety?

Hangxiety is a modern term for mild alcohol-induced anxiety and depression. Many have felt that the word better describes the emotional fallout that comes after even just a little bit of drinking, especially when the feeling isn’t quite as bad as a typical hangover. 

While a hangover manifests itself more in physical symptoms, hangxiety is more about the negative emotional symptoms. This experience has been backed by science, which has shown that mood-related issues such as anxiety are very common in people who drink. The effects of hangxiety could be attributed to many alcohol-related effects, including disrupted sleep and physical symptoms such as a headache.

What Causes Hangxiety?

The core culprit of hangxiety is alcohol. Alcohol can cause numerous negative effects on the body, with some painful and lasting symptoms, such as a bad headache, nausea, sluggishness, anxiety, and depression.

When it comes to hangxiety, it might be caused by alcohol’s ability to mimic the brain chemical GABA. GABA can have a calming effect on us, making it one of the big reasons alcohol takes the edge off, making stresses in life seem a little more bearable. But once the alcohol wears off, your body returns its brain chemistry to normal, and chemicals such as glutamate, which makes you feel restless and anxious, are increased. Ironically, that one drink that calmed you down now has the opposite effect on your body when it wears off.

Another reason for hangxiety symptoms can be the sugar in alcoholic drinks. The high amounts of sugar we ingest from an alcoholic drink can then lead to a blood sugar crash. This then causes your body to release stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline, which can lead to feelings of panic and anxiety throughout your day. Some people even wake up in the middle of the night anxious and unable to go back to sleep, which can lead to a downward spiral in mood.

Hangxiety Symptoms

The symptoms of hangxiety are fairly consistent. The main hangxiety symptoms are a feeling of depression and anxiety. Along with these more general symptoms, many people report feeling overwhelmed by their situations, which includes a sense of worry or embarrassment about the night before. Existential dread is also a common symptom, a feeling that often stems from the anxiety induced by the alcohol. Physiologically, you also might experience an increased heart rate, agitation, and an inability to focus on any task in front of you. Some people even report a heightened state of paranoia, which can cripple the ability to confront daily problems and interpersonal relationships.

Obviously, these symptoms can have a very negative effect on your daily life. Anxiety, depression, and restlessness can affect your productivity, possibly putting your job or schoolwork in jeopardy. These symptoms can also have an impact on your relationships. Without the ability to calmly and rationally handle a situation, we can make testy situations worse, which might lead to more drinking, and more hangxiety, as a result.

Fortunately, at Mobile IV Nurses, we know how to address these symptoms and get you back on a healthy path. Read on to learn more about how to get rid of hangxiety with IV therapy.

How IV Therapy Can Help With Hangxiety

IV therapy can be a great way of managing and treating hangxiety symptoms because people already use IV therapy to help them conquer these symptoms. And since IV treatment works to rehydrate your body, it helps ward off underlying problems with dehydration that only bring down your mood further.

The vitamins, minerals, and nutrients included in IV therapy only help with these symptoms. Vitamin C, B12, and glutathione will help nourish your body and get you on the right track. We can also include pain medication such as Toradol, which will ease any physical symptoms you’re feeling. When you’re pain-free, it’s a lot easier to be in a better mood.
