Hi welcome to HCMForum. The pain may be due to peptic ulcer as it is related to food.
probably due to excess alcohol consumption. I advise you to consult a gastro enterologist
for diagnosis and treatment. Besides i advise you some diet recomendations as Avoid
taking spices chillies zunkfoods oily foods. Use more of curd with food. This is all besides
your doctors treatment. Wishing for a quick recovery. thank you.
