Psychiatrist: Call the alabama psychological association and call the alabama medical society for referrals as well as asking your insurance carrier and your primary care doctor. Best wishes.

The Alabama Psychiatric Physicians Association at http://alabamapsych.org/contact-us/ might be a good place for referrals, as many Alabama psychiatrists would belong to it.

A 40-year-old member asked:

I had my spleen removed after a sports injury, can I still consume alcohol?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. John Ayres
Orthopedic Surgery 37 years experience
Yes: Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, there are no restrictions from drinking alcohol or special dietary requirements following surgical removal of a spleen (splenectomy). People who have had their spleen removed are at increased risk of bacterial infection. The risk of infection is much higher among children than adults. The risk also appears to decline with time, but for a few years at the least, and until late adolescence for children, taking precautions against bacterial infections would be wise. This includes getting pneumonia vaccines and flu shots. People without spleens should try to keep their immune systems as healthy and strong as possible. Exercising, eating a healthy diet, reducing stress and getting plenty of rest will all help the immune system. With this in mind, limiting alcohol consumption as part of an overall healthy lifestyle strategy is a good idea, but typically, no added restrictions are issued after a splenectomy.

Yes: Alcohol is a toxin and therefore a poison to everyone. Some people are more sensitive than others. You are obviously having having a reaction to the alcohol and i would definitely recommend you leave it off.
