You thought nausea and headaches were the worst of it? Ha, nope.

Sure, you were expecting a headache and maybe some vomiting, but why does it feel like you got hit by a tractor trailer?

2. Your heart rate and anxiety levels may skyrocket.
3. The alcohol in your system wreaks havoc on your sleep patterns.
4. If you can fall asleep, you might have nightmares, thanks to the increase in REM sleep.
