Definition of Hangover

Hangover is a collection of signs and symptoms related to a recent episode of heavy drinking , but this is not all that Hangover means.

The Hangover can occur at any time of the day, but they are generally more common in the morning, immediately after a night of heavy drinking.

In addition to physical symptoms, the person may experience elevated levels of  anxietyregretshame, and depression. The severity of a hangover is closely related to the amount of alcohol consumed and whether the patient slept enough; The less you sleep, the worse the hangover.
