Will a stomach hernia resolve itself? How does part of your stomach wind up above diaphram, and sit beside esophagus?!?
Hiatal hernia: Not likely to resolve itself. The diaphragm is a large muscle that has a "hole" in it where the esophagus passes through.

Alcoholism: It doesn't in general. You are describing a situation that sounds like too much alcohol too often. Most people do not have any effects as you describe them.
