    @Worried1230 Alcohol depletes a whole lot of essential nutrients. Your body's anxiety may stem from a nutrient deficiency. The B complex vitamins, known as the stress and mood vitamins along with minerals that activate, them are depleted by alcohol. Over time with continued drinking the deficit grows...eventually leading to early alcoholic dementia. Problems from alcohol appears far more likely than CFS.

    I'd bet you feel a whole lot better when you reduce your drinking and increase your nutrient intake. Alcohol is like banging your head on the wall, it's not good for you and so you will feel bad until you stop.

    As a friend of mine, a 16 year sober alcoholic noted, "Alcohol is an eraser. It will remove everything good in your life: your health, your love life, your job, your friends, your family...and make you absolutely miserable, unable to work and a menace and a burden to others."

    There are some very good supplements to help reduce alcohol withdrawal symptoms.

    Googling nutrients and alcohol brings up a whole bunch of good articles... For example these may help. Just click on the links below to read:

    Low nutrients can cause anxiety. Get some of the basic minerals and vitamins tested. If they are low then you could supplement to get them up to middle of the reference range. Doctors are usually happy if results are anywhere in the range including right at the bottom, but middle of the range might help you a lot. It wouldn't do any harm and might do a lot of good.

    anxiety can really strain your mental state and make you feel like passing out. I recommend visiting a phychiatrist maybe some anxiety medication can help.
