Hello !

It sounds that you mention NOT DRINKING HEAVILY SINCE SATURDAY--- the shaking would seem consistent with alcohol withdrawal ...I would worry about Delerium Tremens being a risk for you. I advise that you be seen at ER...

DT's have considerable risk to you if that is going on.

I think medical evaluation is in order !!

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns

I Will be happy to get back with you

If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback Thank you and Best Regards!,

Hello again,

You may be seen at ER regardless of ability to pay ...issue is not dehydration ....the history of your drinking is more the issue ...drinking heavily then sudden stop may lead to over -stimulation of your nervous system....may cause racing of heart , may cause blood pressure to soar...can cause you to have seizures --- may cause confused state ( Delerium ) it may even be FATAL !!

You need medical attention >>> a protocol of medication to taper for you is strongly advised !!!

The onset of DT's may be several days to a week after you stop drinking ....

I worry that you are probably damaging your health in other ways for you to present in this way !!

I hope that you will go to ER .....

AS I said they will see you regardless of no insurance or not being able to pay !!!

Put your health first !!

I hope that this is helpful for you

Best Regards ***** ***** luck to you !!
