What To Do If You Get A Thanksgiving 'Food Hangover'
Thanksgiving is perhaps the one day of the year when it’s totally acceptable ― and even expected ― to completely overdo it at the dinner table. While there’s nothing wrong with indulging in a delicious meal, going in for third servings of stuffing, mashed potatoes and pecan pie may have some consequences. Come Friday morning, you might find yourself experiencing a nasty “food hangover,” the unscientific but all-too-real ailment characterized by fatigue, bloating, brain fog, general discomfort and maybe even nausea and heartburn.

I Have Morning Sickness PTSD
I threw up every day for 9 months when I was pregnant with my daughter six years ago. The medical term for severe morning sickness is "hyperemesis-gravidarum" and until Princess Kate made it evening news, many people didn't understand how incapacitating it is. For the first three months, I was bedridden and every morning felt like Groundhog's Day meets The Hangover. Everyone marveled at my growing bump and glowing skin; I was supposed to be euphoric but I existed in a torturous, alienating sick twilight zone where every morning felt like the worst hangover of all time.

A British researcher says he has discovered a synthetic alcohol which allows drinkers to enjoy the sensation of being drunk without the negative side effects that usually follow.
