Default Right side dull ache?

Hi:

Does anybody have a low-level ache right under the ribs on the right-hand side? I "googled" it and see that it could be my liver or pancreas. It usually occurs after a night of heavy drinking.

I'm on day one today of 30 days AF. I've tried before and failed miserably. I really think I can do it this time though.

Hi and Welcome. You can do this. Yes, in the past I have had that dull, nagging feeling. After 30 days AF you will be ache-free I bet. Best of luck to you!!

Hi,
Yes . I did 30 days AF in October and the pain went away. After resuming drinking again it came back. I am not sure what causes it but I also get heartburn with it. it could be related to acid in the stomach, especially if you are drinking white wine. However, I do think it is worth doing your 30 days as modderate drinking seemed easier for 2 months after that. Just don't slip back like I did!

I am paranoid at present due the guilt of past drinking that i willget liver disease, pancreatitis etc..so any niggle i got i attributed it to the boozw/////WE ARE ON 20TH JUNE TODAY AND I,VE HAD 3 NIGHTS ONLY THIS MONTH WHEN I,VE HAD A FEW WINES..ONE OF THOSE NIGHTS I DRANK OVER MY GOAL LIMIT.

i,m sure drinking wine irritates the stomach, causes acid reflux, bad breath, farting, poor skin, poor .
i have got thread veins on my face which of course i attribute to years of wine9thankfully a dab of makeup covers the evidence!)


i certainly feel fitter and livelier now the drinking has been vastly reduced and the odd aches and heartburn has ceased...yipee.

the only way to know is the cut the booze for a bit..if the ache goes there is the answer!!

hope its nothing major...good luck

Cassy

Alcohol is a stomach irritant. First thing go see your doctor. This isn't something you want to be dismissive about. I had intense stomach pain. Thought it was my liver, went and had a battery of test to find out it was a small gastric erosion. Please go to your doctor Iam. You will be so much happier when you have the anwser. All the best.

thanks guys!! Day 2 for me. Last night was easy b/c I had to work. Got home at 8:30 and went straight to bed. Tonight I'm off at 4:00. My hardest time is after I get off work when I'm making dinner.... I suck down the Chardonnay or Gin/Tonics. I will get online tonight to see who's out there.
I'm afraid to go to the Dr. I'm afraid what she will say about my weight (25 lbs. over what I should be) and my drinking... I do have my yearly coming up...

I liked somebody's signature line: "Sometimes I wonder...."Why is that frisbee getting bigger?"...and then it hits me." It sure hits the mark for me.

Ima, she shouldn't say anything about your weight. This is a stomach issue. You don't have to say exlactly how much you drink, I always said a glass of wine or 2 when asked, when in reality it was 2-3 bottles. I was much heavier then also. Please see your doctor, and keep us up to date
