Excessive alcohol will cause your symptoms. Alcohol is a poison that never did anybody any good, ever, so stay away from it. It will destroy your brain cells, facilitate the development of cancer in many organs, including breast, cause hepatitis, cirrhosis and pancreatitis etc. There is no safe level of alcohol intake. Quit while you are ahead.
