Why Does My Poop Smell After I Drink Alcohol
My urine smells like onions after I drink alcohol, and my stool has been green lately. Should I worry?
Maybe, maybe not: Stool changes can be due to the foods (or drinks) eaten, to medication effects, to stomach flu or other infections, to gall bladder problems, etc... One can try stopping the alcohol, and eating a bland, balanced diet (but not over eat) to see if the symptoms go away in a couple of days. If not quickly back to normal, a primary care doctor can evaluate to see what the problem might be. ...Read more

Anytime I drink alcohol, even just a glass of wine, I find blood in my poop the next day. Should I be concerned about this?
Yes: You need to be concerned about stomach irritation by the alcohol which can cause bleeding. The irritation can be severe enough to lead to an ulcer (s). It may be a coincidence since only a lot of bleeding and a fast transit time through the colon can lead to bright red blood from the stomach to the stool. ...Read more

Alcohol effects: I agree with my colleague dr. Ali about possible alcohol intolerance. In addition, alcohol is a very dis-inhibiting drug. For some, the first drinks may reduce social anxiety -- allowing easier, and more fun interactions. With more and more drinks, the response can change to irritability because of poor frustration tolerance -- and our usual social decorum (run by our brain cortex) is asleep. ...Read more

You need to consider reducing alcohol intake and seeing your doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

It can be in many: People, particularly those of Asian or Native American descent.

I dump 2 feedings after I drink alcohol (drink at 8:00, dump at 10 and 12) could this alcohol, even though I'm dumping, be exacerbating her reflux?
Probably not: After dumping breast milk until 4 hours after drinking alcohol, the subsequent breast milk probably hasn't enough alcohol in it to alter a baby's reflux. If the reflux is very bad, or the baby is very young or growing well, consulting with a pediatric gastroenterologist is helpful. Also, one can stop the alcohol, thus eliminating the desire to dump milk, and see if things improve for the baby. ...Read more
Sometimes after I drink alcohol, usually liquor not beer, (even just one glass) I get a pain on the top of my foot the next day that lasts for hours?
For the past year, sometimes I have been getting pain in my rib cage both sides which radiates to my back. With drinking less, I notice it happens more after I drink alcohol.
Could be many things: But if it is getting worse after drinking, I would be concerned that it might be pancreatitis. Anything in what is called the "retroperitoneum" - very posterior organs like the pancreas, a short part of the duodenum, the kidneys - may radiate to the back. I would see your health care provider for a full evaluation, including blood work and possibly imaging of the pancreas. Stop alcohol! ...Read more

TryHeavn'sGrapeJuice: Well, it won't make you feel any stronger in the long run. Some say alcohol stores iron in the body but I don't think that is significant unless you are a lush (like several drinks a day for several years, like, you know, a flaming drunk)The bright side is that wine is made of grapes which contain a fair amount of iron (100gm=2%RDA) and wine has. 6mg/5oz=roughly 10%RDA. But there are better sources. ...Read more
