Pain after eating: suggests the possibility of an ulcer in a particular location, and if it is causing you to eat less than normal or to lose weight it could be dangerous. You could take acid blockers and antacids, but if it keeps up you should really be seen. See checklist on dealing with ulcer and by all means do not drink anything that makes you hurt, which especially means any form of alcohol.
