my stomach and back are in severe pain
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 months ago

heavy alcohol use can cause gastritis and damage to your stomach lining

and weight gain which can cause more strain on your back.

it sounds like you need to see a doctor.

are you able to quit alcohol on your own?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
