Why do I have trouble breathing after alcohol?
Whenever I go through a day of heavy drinking I have trouble breathing that night after the alcohol wears off. Like right now. Why?

Drinking alcohol especially if to the point of drunkenness / dehydration causes your system
to work harder just to keep up. Try learning from this by cutting back or quitting altogether.
Try having some water now and either Pedialyte or Gatorade/Powerade when you wake up.Source(s): personal experience and several friends who are RNs.

Alcohol dehydrates the body. The body must work harder to keep up. Hence the shortness of breath.

May be an effect from alcohol poisoning.
