Sympathy Hangover?

I'm having a weird day today. Last night I stayed up, perhaps a bit too late, writing on my new manuscript. I was working on a scene wherein the main character gets drunk (hammered!) on tequila sunrises.

The scene is only half-done but I hit my goal for the night (1000 words) and needed sleep, so I left it at that.

At no time yesterday did I consume alcohol of any kind.

Nonetheless, I woke up this morning feeling hungover. My mouth was dry, I had a headache, my stomach was queasy at best...

Am I experiencing a sympathy hangover for my main character? Is that even a thing?
