Maybe: It is an uncommon sign in liver ulcers would be another way to get back pain from drinking. A better question is why you are not trying to stop the drinking. It sounds like you have recognized that you have a problem and have already been concerned enough to see a doctor. Don't wait to get help until your liver fails. It is too late at that point.
