      Re: Is anyone available to help?

      Well, I had lost weight but booze has so many calories and drinking it seems to settle right on my gut. If you think I have some liver disease or something I have considered that but I need to just stop drinking and see how it looks. I think I may home some liver damage but nothing I can't reverse y staying stopped. Since I do t drink daily and have not drank like this for long ( 2 to 3 years) with periods of nothing-- I'm just hoping it was sitting on my ass consuming g wine and beer. You can tell me the possibilities-I get scared anyway. But I'm just going to stay quit. The dr is so judgmental she's just going to make me feel worse.

      Leaky gut, what I did not want to say. Enlarged liver, is possible. Many reasons why you can gain weight as you mentioned beer. I used hardcore straight alcohol and lost a ton of weight, because I did not eat. It all contains calories so you can keep going but beer and wine can cause weight gain. The problem is that its empty calories. My BMI is spot on after a ton of work to gain weight and learn to eat again.

      B1 Thiamine is severely important if you are not even eating.

      Glad that you are getting the medical help that you need and that it sounds liked hubby seems to have gotten a true glimpse of what you've been going through.

      Re: Is anyone available to help?

      @Orimus sometimes people need to do their own research as the doctor does not know. I let my doctor wait a week before deciding on what I recommended. He has access to absolutely everything, but this is Canada. We have some crazy health care tech that its all cross checked if you have a good GP in Canada. I've seen crap GPs (when mine moved) and great GPs. My GP has the latest in tech, its incredible. Self medication or becoming paranoid of health issues is driving most of us mad. So thats the word for it Cyberchondria. I've been through it as I've had internet before the aka internet and access to all med books. Self diagnosis is freaky and can manifest even its not there. But doctors have no idea either so I watch my doctor look at cross conflicts. He has become more and more open about how he is researching. I use drugs.com to see what might go on in cross drugs. Alcohol crisis as it is, it's not being taken care of properly. Epidemic.

      I agree that you must do your own research. But, I think you need to first start by seeing a medical doctor. I had never heard of that term @Orimus - thank you.

      @Tidegirl - Glad that you are somewhat better. Have you set up the rehab facility that you are going to go to? Are you going to be able to go straight there from the airport? Hang in there.

      Re: Is anyone available to help?

      @NoraC I definitely agree a medical doctor first (hopefully qualified). But you and I know how the up and down go from what I have read and my doctor fully admits I am his only ALC patient at the moment. My last GP had 3 or 4 of us, so he learned. So I give him time and he has the best tools. He takes the time to look at it and consider options. I am unusual where as I have lists of drugs that are no good for me and one thats do good so my doctor has a starting ground. All printed out in time lines and dose.

      So Campral is like the most simple and I recommend it, naltrexone takes a day to get used too, it could just be during AWS, but I recommend it. SSRI and SNRIs (antidepressants) do weird things so I'm not sure what to say about them in your case. Trazadone or Mirtazapine seem effective, the later being if you need weight after an insane binge.

      Not a doctor, like NoraC says see a doctor.
