Bit odd.

Everytime I drink wine I feel incredibly uneasy. Even after just 1 glass (white or red) my head feels very full, I get dizzy, my face my feel a bit numb and I just feel weird in my head. My body can feel very heavy too. I am not drunk I am still very capable, I don't feel drunk, my mind is totally fine. I can drink vodka/premix etc no worries it's just wine.. does anyone had any idea why this happens???

It could be an adverse affect to the preservatives.

 Try organic wine

Yeah this is me when i'm drunk & don't realise it yet. Some wines a very potent, they go straight to your head especially if you don't have food in your stomach. I can drink spirits like a champ but some wines whooo horsey I want to get off now after 1 glass

I cannot drink one particular brands of wine, and was able to identify 2 preservatives that trigger massive rhinitis attacks (running & blocked nose) that would last about 6 hours.

Does all wine trigger you, or is it certain brands ?

Sounds like you're allergic to the sulfites in the wine. If you get an organic one make sure it is sulfite free
