How old are you? Are you a male or a female? How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Any weight change? If so , what period of time? Does anything make it better or worse? Did you have an upper GI endoscopy? Any abnormal blood test? Did you have ultrasound? How long have you been drinking heavily? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any other medications including over-the-counter pills nad herbs? Any family medical history?

I do, and have had a fatty liver. I don't really care about that, this attack has come on strong, and nobody can tell me why. I've called my doctor and surgeon.

I have no gall stones, I eat some portions of food, try to stay heathy and exercise, don't feel the pain the chest or back with ball bladder, but I definitely don't fell good.. No jaundice, no getting sick after meals... vomit is very rare and irregular.

Since you feel better when you drink alcohol, your symptoms are due to alcohol withdrawal. You should be referred to a detox specialist who will help you.
