If you are a very shy kind of person, you are more likely to suffer from "hangxiety" - anxiety during a hangover - as compared to your extrovert friends, a new study suggests. The study showed that, among the participants, drinking about six units of alcohol slightly decreased anxiety in highly shy people. But, the next day, this slight relaxation was replaced by a significant increase in anxiety - a state of "hangxiety" among the shy drinkers.

The research team also found a strong link between this "hangxiety" and higher scores on the AUDIT test which is used to identify alcohol use disorder (AUD) in highly shy people. "We know that many people drink to ease anxiety felt in social situations, but, this research suggests that this might have rebound consequences the next day, with more shy individuals more likely to experience this, sometimes debilitating, aspect of hangover," said co-author Celia Morgan, professor at the University of Exeter.
