Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, it indicates you have gastritis either due to alcohol consumption or dinner.

I would advise you some self-care remedies which you can try.
Maintain a good hydration with Gatorade and cool water.

You should buy over the counter liquid Pepcid and take it 2-3 times a day.

Start Culturelle probiotic and Citrucel and Gas X.
Eat a BRATY diet(Banana, rice, applesauce, toast, and yogurt).
Take proper rest.

If your symptoms will not show any improvement then see a your doctor for a clinical exam.

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.
