  5. What are alcohol withdrawal symptoms?
Asked: 2018-06-14 22:33:08
My son is very sick right now. He is shaking, throwing up and sweating with a fever. He stopped drinking two days ago. Is this withdrawal or has he caught a bug?

Detoxing from alcohol can become a medical emergency. Is your son an alcoholic? Did he drink daily for awhile? Yes, the symptoms you describe could be from the flu, but could also be alcohol related. I would seek medical advise to be sure.

If your son has been a heavy or long-term drinker he very well could be withdrawing from alcohol, which can be dangerous. Consider seeking medical care or going to the E.R.
