Wine Headaches

Wine Headaches

Do you suffer from headaches when drinking wine? We aren’t talking about wine drunk here, necessarily, but rather a glass or two of sipping wine, and then all of a sudden you’re met with a piercing pain in your head. This can be common for some wine drinkers and we all would love to know how to avoid this and be able to enjoy our wine without the pain.  There are ways to lower the chances of getting these nasty wine headaches, and I’m sure we’d all like to know more so let’s get right into it.

Firstly, and most simply, try drinking a glass of water between every glass of wine you consume. Dehydration is a nasty thing and can affect you at any moment, ruining your evening and causing your head to start throbbing. Make sure you’re staying properly hydrated at all times, but especially if you’re going to be drinking.

You may suffer from wine intolerance or just have headaches when you drink wine. Either way, these issues can be closely related to the sulfites and tannins found in your wine. Sulfites preserve the wine and prevent oxidation which helps the wine taste good and tannins, generally found in red wines, create that dry wine taste. You can eliminate these with certain products and save yourself the headache. Some of these products are drops in which you can simply add one or two to your beverages without losing the taste of your wine.

Limiting your intake is another way you can possibly avoid these issues if you notice that they don’t start until you’ve been going through a bottle for a while. While moderating the amount of wine you drink may not sound like a favorite choice, if other options aren’t helping you may want to simply experiment and find your limit to avoid your head hurting every time you pop a cork.

Straining the wine is another technique you can try. Products exist to filter your wine and strain out tannins that may be contributing to your headaches.

Hopefully, these tips can help someone alleviate their wine headaches but just remember, sometimes moderation is the only answer. Most importantly though, stay hydrated always. If you are already dehydrated and then try to start drinking, drinking water in between may not be your head-saving answer. Maybe you know some tricks of your own that have worked in the past, as well. The most important thing is to be able to enjoy your glass of wine without fear of pain later in the day so anything that will help is worth the effort!
