Have some stomach discomfort today, have felt weird all day
Tell me more
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Sure, I woke up today with a mild hangover which is suprising because I only had 5 or 6 drinks and most it was beer with a couple glasses of wine. I guess my drinking was way down the past month though and this is probably only the second time I had this much to drink in a month...


Anyways I didn't end up eating lunch til about 2:30 as I was very busy with work and when i finally ate i had a chicken sandwich. After I ate it though my stomach still kind of felt the pain it feels when it has gone too long with out eating which is surprising. I then an hour later got a yogurt cup at starbucks and that made me feel somewhat better.


My stomach just feels like it has been in knots all day for whatever reason. I thought it was hunger but now maybe it wasn't. I am wondering if this is also tied to the saliva tatsing odd? I dont really have any cramps or blating and no diarrhea. I have felt like belching though...

Don't take this the wrong way but you had that much to drink last night and now you're surprised at the way you feel?

I guess in the past (before last month), that used to be a regular thing 4 nights a week or so

I rarely felt the effects throughout day like i have today

Well, first off you're basically describing what most folks would feel the day after a drinking spree like that. In addition, if you have a problem with reflux and maybe H pylori infection with gastritis, the alcohol just made all that worse. I suggest you stay away from any alcohol for a while, take some Prilosec or Pepcid AC on a daily basis, and, if your doctor didn't screen you for H pylori, call him up and ask that he do so

Ok what does a screen for H pylori involve?

A breath test is best although it can be a blood test

Ok thx. Sounds like I dont have any reason to go to the ER then?

Not at all--this isn't anything that serious

Hi Doc,



FYI I googled the saliva thing and found this article...|strange-smell-or-taste|taste-of-acid-in-mouth|unusual-taste-in-mouth&symptomids=459|574|191|245&locations=7|7|7|7



You really shouldn't Google your symptoms--not with your OCD problem with health issues. The one thing on that page that really is what I think is your problem is the GERD
