Have pain in abdomen after drinking alcohol. Liver is fine. Reason?

Hi I am a 23 year old female in good health. Lately everytime I drink alcohol I wake up the next day with pain on the right side of my abdonomen. It feels like it almost can be a menstrual cramp but it's not. It's a heavy feeling and sharp feeling as well. It also feels sore. I checked my liver already with a blood test last year and I was fine. What can it be??

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.Forum.
Pain in the upper right abdomen suggests stomach irritation or peptic ulcer. It is clear for you that you are getting pain after taking alcohol, So either you stop taking alcohol, or change the brand.
I adviseyou to consult a surgeon for diagnosis and treatment, You may need to have gastroscopy, besides other routine tests for confirmation. Some times ulcer may be irritated by the alcohol and cause pain.
I advise you to avoid spices, junk foods, and oily foods, besides alcohol. take more of water and fluids.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery.
best regards.
