Thanks for choosing "Ask The Doctor" for posting your query.
You seem to be having a bad hangover and this may occasionally take around 1-2 days to settle down.
Meanwhile, you need to drink plenty of water and also may take paracetamol for headache. Vit B6 helps in some cases, but in most of the cases, the symptoms of a hangover will settle down by self.
In case, if the headache is persisting for 24 hours more then you need to seek medical help as then intoxication of alcohol might have led to some complication.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
Wish you good health!
