Thanks for your query.

The symptoms you have could probably be due to acid peptic disease in the form of mild Gastritis or a small gastric ulcer.The pain radiating back is very typically seen in posterior wall ulcers.

If you have consumed alcohol for longer duration then another possible diagnosis like Pancreatitis can be considered.

I would suggest you to take Tab Prilosec OTC once in the morning before food for a week.This will reduce the excess acid seen in acid peptic disease and reduce the symptoms effectively.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
