Hi and thanks for contacting healthcare magic
Pain abdomen severe enough to bend over, sweating and vomiting after a binge of alcohol usually points to pancreatitis
Alcohol binge can also presipitate a porphyria attack and produce similar symptoms. But porphria is a chronic disease with recurrent symptoms
A gastric ulcer with penetration may also produce these symptoms but has no defenite relation with alcohol
Hence as an initial work up get an ultrasound abdomen and blood testing for LFT and lipase. You may take some analgesics like tramadol
