This is Dr. David

you should go to the A&E or hospital or your GP doctor right away for evaluation

nurofen and alcohol can cause stomach ulcers and severe stomach gastritis inflammation of your stomach

that is why your stomach is hurting

it can also cause your stomach to bleed. blood from your stomach can get digested through your small bowel and turn your stools tar black. this is called melena.

you have to see a doctor right away

you will need medications like Nexium or Protonix to decrease stomach acid so your stomach has a chance to heal

and you will need to avoid alcohol for now.
