Numbness on my right hand 4 fingers and also a heartburn on everything I eat or drink?

Numbness on my right hand 4 fingers and also a heartburn on everything I eat or drink?

Unrelated: I believe that these symptoms are unrelated. Nerve impingement at the wrist may be causing the numbness. A hand surgeon can evaluate and advise you. Heartburn is first treated by avoiding spicy and oily foods, caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, Advil, etc. Taking medication like prilosec or zantac should be effective. A gastroenterologist is best qualified to evaluate and treat you for this problem. ...Read more

I drank a bottle of pinky liquid originally for heartburn but I used it as a coat to slow absorbing alcohol, then I drank a lots of beer. The two day?

Drinking absorbtion: Your question is not clear but I think you are asking if the pink liquid and a lot of alcohol are safe together. The answer to this is yes. As far as the liquid delaying absorbtion probably not a lot as the liquid works in the stomach and absorbtion is quite a ways away.
