Dry mouth, nausea and a thumping headache? It sounds like a hangover, but it could be a drinks allergy in disguise

With Christmas a few weeks away, you're probably dreading the weeks of terrible hangovers that are coming your way.

From the dull headache and dry mouth after a 'quick Christmas drink' on a work night that spirals out of control, to the full on, can't-move-can't-think disaster zone that generally follows the office Christmas party, it all sounds a bit too familiar.

But before you start panic-buying Berocca and paracetamol, there might be a way to avoid the dreaded H word.

According to scientists, hangover symptoms can actually be attributed to allergic reactions to the ingredients in your favourite alcoholic drinks. Step in the YorkTest programme, which offers you a mail-order blood test to see which ingredients you're allergic to, and give you recommendations on how to avoid them on a night out.

Perfect - discover you're allergic to one particular obscure type of wine, which has been the cause of all your hangovers to date, then steer clear of that for the rest of you life.

YorkTest Food&DrinkScan Programme costs £299 for the full test which analyses more than 158 different food and drink ingredients. Order via freephone 0800 130 0580 or visit YorkTest.com
