High liver count due to alochol, now normal. Had 2 days of alcohol after that. Test 2 days later normal. But weird bloated feeling. Enlarged?

Liver and Alcohol: This is very consistent to the damage that can be done by alcohol and how the liver can bounce back. But, abusing your liver again makes me wonder how many times you will get away with experimenting with it's health. The second set of labs after drinking for two days may very well have been too early for accuracy. The bloating and swollen liver is exactly what should be happening. ...Read more

Drink a lot wether thirsty or not! All diet soda & 1Powerade qday NO alcohol!! I have mg/anxiety/anxious/tired/weak/bloated/inactive. All labs normal?

I assume you have: Ruled out any medical condition that would cause excessive thirst (labs normal so no diabetes?). The drinks you described all have a stimulant effect, which probably accounts for the symptoms you report (anxiety, then tired, weak, bloated, etc.). Try drinking just plain, filtered water, exercising and eating well for a week. Better? Or, are you self-medicating for something else? ...Read more

Bloated belly and stomach pains. Could it be alcohol infection?

Bloated belly and stomach pains. Could it be alcohol infection?

"Alcohol infection"?: There are lots of reasons for abdominal discomfort & bloating, & not all of them are due to the GI tract. Even "functional" syndromes may be present without underlying "disease." however psbo (paralyzed gut) due to metabolic & inflammatory conditions nearby (like an untreated infection of the urinary tract)must be considered & addressed. Check with your doctor for examination & treatment options. ...Read more

Drank 6oz cabernet Sauvignon wine 13.5% alcohol. Then remembered I'm on Pamabrom to reduce pre menstrual bloat. Is this dangerous?? So scared

Drank 6oz cabernet Sauvignon wine 13.5% alcohol. Then remembered I'm on Pamabrom to reduce pre menstrual bloat. Is this dangerous?? So scared

Doctors advice: Checking the website on Pamabrom it does not indicate that one must avoid alcohol. It is unlikely that one glass of alcohol would cause any harm. You can check with your doctor to determine if you are supposed to be avoiding alcohol based on the medical condition that requires Pamabrom. ...Read more

I was drinking alcohol almost everyday last week, march break. Now this whole week im extremely bloated, & having stomach troubles. Does this relate?

There is a relation: Alcohol is bad for the GI system. Alcohol can cause an erosive gastritis. It wipes out the microvillus border resulting in diarrhea and malabsorption with long term use. Also, alcohol is toxic to the liver resulting in a progression from fatty change to hepatitis to cirrhosis. Your body is telling you that you have consumed something unhealthy for you. ...Read more

Spent 5 days binge drinking with a day in between each had about 100-160 units of alcohol now my stomach feels bloated/swollen haven't drank for 2days?

Spent 5 days binge drinking with a day in between each had about 100-160 units of alcohol now my stomach feels bloated/swollen haven't drank for 2days?

Give it more time: It can take several days for complete recovery from a binge. A word of warning: it sounds like you are addicted to alcohol. Don't kid yourself into believing that somehow binge drinking is OK and doesn't count as alcohol dependency just because of time between binges. You are at high risk for all the psychological and physical ravages of alcoholism. Don't screw around with this. Good luck! ...Read more

What types of alcohol is least harmful?

What types of alcohol is least harmful?

Not methanol: The only drinking alcohol is ethyl alcohol and this is what is contained in most potable beverages. It is not so much the type of drink you are using as it is the amount of ethanol you are consuming on a regular basis. Alcohol is generally harmful only when used to excess. A bottle of beer usually contains about the same amount of etoh as a shot of whiskey. ...Read more

What is the least harmful form of alcohol to drink?

What is the least harmful form of alcohol to drink?

Why do you ask?: The danger comes from the amount of ethanol you take in. If sounds to me as if someone is putting pressure on you to drink and that you don't want to. Good for you. Of the alcoholic beverages, beer and wine are less associated with people actually drinking to get drunk, which hopefully isn't something you'll want to do often. I used to ask for a 'virgin mary' -- looks like alcohol but isn't. ...Read more

I've had what looks like black stool for at least a month if not more. Have not changed anything drastically in regards to diet and alcohol.

I've had what looks like black stool for at least a month if not more. Have not changed anything drastically in regards to diet and alcohol.

? blood: I'm sure you are worried that this could represent intestinal bleeding. Black stools could be due to gastrointestinal bleeding but the stools are often sticky and foul-smelling if the color is due to blood. If you have been bleeding for at least a month I would expect you would have other symptoms as well such as weakness or dizziness. It's best to get it checked out though. ...Read more

At least once a week really bad belly cramps and loose yellow stool, I drink a lot of beer so not sure if it's related to the alcohol or food scared?

See answer: Alcohol can cause your symptoms so it may be a wakeup call. Without knowing more of your history, it is hard to tell if you may have bile acid diarrhea or irritable bowel among other causes. See a GI doctor to evaluate this further especially if it doesn't get better after cutting back/stopping alcohol. ...Read more

I use my Voldyne inspired spirometer @ least 3+Times qday. Scared of pneumonia again since last time BUT is it me. Makes me feel nauseous/bloated etc?

Interesting....: Cannot say in your particular case, but generally, increased abdominal pressure can cause those symptoms. Hiatal hernia, air swallowing are common.
Oddly enough, yoga breathing technique or other training in breathing would fix it. Spirometry would also be interesting to see breathing pattern. ...Read more

Mix it up: You may want to try taking a different type of laxative. You could try a stimulant laxative like senna or bisacodyl, or you could try taking a fiber supplement to help as well, although extra fiber can sometimes make people feel bloated if they take too much. ...Read more

Very bloated for almost 2 weeks and is getting more noticeable to me at least, period was supposed to be 2 days ago. Not pregnant, used condoms.

Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.
