Upset stomach from alcohol consumption

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi, I'm a fomer serious problem drinker, who after January 1993, aged 37, found themselves unable to drink alcohol any more, simply, it made me feel deathly awful. And yet recently, I found I could...drink again. However, could I? The reason I ask is, following only moderate alcohol consumption, say six units, it upsets my stomach, producing days, say a week, of mild nausea, and an upset stomach. Obviously, I've stopped again. I'm 59 after all, with health issues, none too serious ones but health issues nonetheless; and my tum is hardly likely to be what it was. I was wondering if anyone might know what I'm suffering from when this occurs...could it be alcoholic gastritis? Is there any way of finding out for sure; or would I have to drink again (something I don't really want to do). Or could it be dyspepsia (last time it happened, I drank around six units on an empty stomach)? Is there a difference between gastritis and dyspepsia does anyone know? Is there any way of finding out what might be going on? In the meantime, I'm going back to not drinking, the risk seems too hight to me.
