See PMD: Go to see your doctor to get checked. It is likely due to gastritis or inflammation on the stomach lining-related to stomach acid, medication etc. Stop the alcohol. Take some anti acid like pepcid/ Prilosec otc -but most importantly is to go to see your primary care doctor for evaluation. If necessary, your primary care doctor can refer you to specialist for more detail evaluation.
