I think I have this. Great info, but no doctor will even know where to start.

Asian flush


>"Asian flush" is common in East Asians, with approximately 30 to 50% of Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans showing characteristic physiological responses to drinking alcohol that includes facial flushing, nausea, headaches and a fast heart rate. The condition may be also highly prevalent in some Southeast Asian and Inuit populations.[1][2][3][8]

Interesting, I flush when I drink and I also have Reynauds so my circulation obviously isn't brilliant
