For the past 6 months or longer whenever I drink alcohol I get a really upset feeling in my upper part of my body both rhs and lhs behind the ribs. The rhs pain got me real worried I actually thought I was having a heart attack. When I drink my heart rate can also rise and stay arisen for 2-3 days even after I stop drinking. Generally I get these pains the next day after drinking and i just hear non stop gurlgling and squishing noises coming from the area. I have probably abused alcohol for 12 years and have never had any problems until now. I have noticed though if I take these peppermint oil tablets that is suppose to help ibs it clears up the symptoms pretty good. I have also just noticed to im not a coffee drinker but just took it up and I get the same issue its just like when i have alcohol. any idea what this could be i notice after alcohol my stools can be runny and fluffy jaggedy in apperance and light coloured a few days to weeks of absistance and I get the darker coulour back and more constipated ??? Pretty worried I have noticed minute amounts of bright red blood in the stool but this has now seemed to stop. For the moment I have been 3 weeks clean and feeling a bit better. I really do want to at least drink alchol every now and then socially....
