34-year-old Matthew Hogg (pictured above with his girlfriend, Mandy), from England, has a very unusual problem. He gets hungover after eating normal, everyday food, like bread, pasta, pizza, etc. Yes, he doesn’t even need alcohol to feel the buzz. While, to some of us, that might not seem like a huge problem, living with a perpetual hangover isn’t a great plan, you know, for life.

Hogg suffers from this condition called auto-brewery syndrome, a rare disorder in which his intestines produce ethanol – pure alcohol – from carbohydrates, leaving him drunk at worst, and tired and hungover at best.

Here’s his story.
