Hi XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini, Gastroenterologist and I am pleased to answer your query.

The pain on the right side of the abdomen could be due to peptic ulcer disease, hepatitis or cholecystitis .

Since you have the habit of drinking alcohol, it is most likely to be due to alcoholic gastropathy. Drinking alcohol can affect the liver and also the other organs like pancreas.

Bad breath may be due to poor oral hygiene, dry mouth, sinus issues, lung, liver, kidney issues and sometimes due to acid reflux. The food you eat especially garlic and onion also can affect your breath.

You need to consult a gastroenterologist for further evaluation of your abdominal pain and to assess the status of liver. You may require liver function test and ultrasound scan of the abdomen for assessment of your liver function.

I hope that answers your question.
