Is it normal to be hungover for two days after drinking?

I’m 23 and don’t drink often, maybe once a month. I had six IPAs (9%) the night before last night and I’m still hungover. I have an upset stomach and diarrhea.

    Were you drinking on an empty stomach or while tired? I've had lots of IPA and usually

    get less of a hangover from them compared to an equivalent amount of lager or stout.

    9% is high strength alcohol. Alcohol stays in your blood for 24 hours, but what lasts are the consequences of a high alcohol intake. Alcohol shrinks the soft tissue around the brain, so when you feel nausea or dizzy, its because your brain is moving in your skull. Your body weight can help cope with high alcohol, just look at the big guys in the bar, so if you are a light build you need to develop a taste for lower strength beer which at around 5% would be more flavoursome anyway. If you don't eat much before drinking that can be as bad as no water because beer is a great laxative and if all it can shift is the beer, that explains the diarrhea.

    It doesn't last for more than a day usually, and often just the morning

    Budweiser and half head of lettuce

    I'm a heathen, but maybe god is talking to you. Maybe you're supposed to do something very good in your life.

    Pretty normal - once in college I was constipated for a week  - cured it with a six pack of Budweiser and half head of lettuce.

    Not normal at all.  That is a lot of relatively strong beer but it would not give me a hangover at all.

    Yup. You are hungover, Drink some chocolate milk, take 2 aspirin and go back to bed.

    That is close to drinking a half a case of regular beer so yes.
