World Record Hangover

Scottish doctors have diagnosed what may be the longest hangover in the history of binge beer drinking.

A 37-year old man admitted himself into a hospital emergency room in Glasgow last October complaining of wavy vision and a non-stop headache lasting four weeks.

British journal The Lancet reports doctors were initially stumped by the symptoms because the patient had no history of head injury or loss of consciousness and was taking no medication.

But when an eye specialist was called in it was found the man had developed a rare condition caused by severe dehydration.

It was revealed he'd consumed 60 pints or roughly 35 litres of beer over a four day period following a domestic crisis.

After more than six months of long-term blood-thinning treatment the man's vision was restored to normal and the headache was finally gone.
