The upper left sided pain may be due to acid peptic disease which may be alcohol induced called as gastritis.There is also a rare possibility of pancreatitis .As the pain has been there for some weeks it is better to see your doctor and get the necessary tests done and appropriate treatment.
meanwhile stop the beer completely and see if it helps.Take less of spicy foods and more of fiber in the diet.Eat small but frequent feeds.
no insurance.....ahhh well
Sorry to hear that.But it needs to be checked out and treated as there could be complications as the disease progresses.
thanks for your time.....w/o insurance nothing I can do but stop beer and eat more fiber t
