I have been having an odd stomach pain lately. I'm ashamed to say that I have been drinking beer heavily the past couple of months... since quarantine... could this be the reason?

Have your liver checked by your doctor. Liver issues can cause abdominal pain and drinking causes liver issues and since surgery increases the potency of alcohol... yeah, have them check your liver!

I need you to elaborate on the nature of the pains.

Since surgery I had a numerous of different "pains" in my stomach, and I have had to learn to tell the difference. Before surgery I could tell you "what belly pain" I had in 3 sections; menstrual, bowel/intestines and ovulation. The last 3-4 months at least, there has been so much weird pains I never felt before. Last month I even got sent to hospital for abdominal pain that they couldn't find an answer to and which I belive was "the day before menstrual bleed- pains" because I had the same pains last week. I also have the "the stomach is stiff all over and I can barely move pain", which I belive is ovulation. And then there is the sting rays in my right side which is gall bladder.

You need to identify where the pain is and see a doctor. It is best to know where the pain is at before seeing them, otherwise - I am gonna be honest - a lot of doctors work in total ignorance of the patient. It should be checked out with both gastroscopy, X-rays and abdominal exam to rule out any hernias or kinks and such.

Well now I'm pretty sure it's gas. It's moved from under my ribs to lower. May be TMI but me and my kids are gas passers and I was sitting her thinking I've not in a while. Lol.

Please consider whether your alcohol use has become a problem. You wouldn’t be the first person to self-soothe with alcohol once food is off the table.

It might be worth having an X-ray. Yes gas can cause stomach pain but it shouldn't be consistent maybe stay away from fizzy drinks. I found myself after having surgery to be intolerable to fizzy drinks and bread especially burgers I cant eat them. Oh and yes the pain might be telling you that's enough! I know everyone is different for me if I eat to much I get a lot of pain especially in the areas you mentioned. I know you said your is the drinks but they can act as a replacement instead of food especially when its gassy/fizzy it fills the stomach up quick. I mainly stick to Water or non fizzy drinks. I make sure to eat first then glass of water sipping slowly afterwards. Also remember fizzy drinks erupts the stomach as it collides with the acid. This is my experience just thought I'd share. Hope it settles for you.
