Could be many things: but if it is getting worse after drinking, I would be concerned that it might be pancreatitis. Anything in what is called the "retroperitoneum" - very posterior organs like the pancreas, a short part of the duodenum, the kidneys - may radiate to the back. I would see your health care provider for a full evaluation, including blood work and possibly imaging of the pancreas. Stop alcohol!
