Nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, feeling spaced out, burning up, lethargic, unable to concentrate after drinking alcohol. Why ?

Hi, My symptoms only occur after drinking alcohol, the more I drink the worse I get, it all started 6 months ago on my birthday when I had a really heavy night, I woke up he next day absolutely fine, as soon as I ate I needed to be sick, I wasn t but was as close as you can get, long story short, I get Ill for up to a week when I drink, I have had many blood tests for liver , kidney , pancreas , blood, bone etc, i had an endoscopy and still nothing shows. I used to be able to drink as much as I want and have a hangover the next day and that was all, but now it is affecting my social and working life. The main symptoms are: Nausea, worse when I need to have a bowel movement and immediately afterwards, also after I eat or when I m hungry, Dizziness, Diarrhea, Feeling spaced out, Burning up Lethargic, Unable to concentrate. I know this is fairly vague but any help is appreciated as my doctor seems stumped, I have found many other people on forums with the same symptoms and no definitive answer has been given.

Thank you for the query.

Usually such symptoms appears after long time drinking (can be with breaks). In the beginning the alcohol tolerance is quite big so you can drink quite a lot of it. But after some time such tolerance suddenly drops due to liver enzymes decrease. Usually it is very characteristic for the people addicted to the alcohol. But you do not drink every day to be addicted. Sometimes you do not know about it, drinking every other day for example. There is no cure for your symptoms other than stop drinking.

Hope this will help.
