A hangover is the discomfort a person feels the day after a night of heavy drinking.
Symptoms include headaches, nausea, fatigue, and worsened motor skills, and are caused by alcohol’s tendency to dehydrate and interfere with normal hormone production. The effects of a hangover are technically not caused by booze itself, but by acetaldehyde, a chemical that the liver produces as it breaks down alcohol.
