Brief Answer:

Alcohol Withdrawal

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Technically you may be better with Alcohol but that is not a healthy way to handle the situation.

I advise increasing the fluid intake especially electrolytes in the form of buttermilk which is a fermented dairy product.

The Raynaud's is setting in with the evidence of freezing of arm and fingers. You may need medication for this. I suggest seeing a doctor about this problem.

The upper left stomach pain is not a good sign, it could be gastritis or pancreas that is an issue after a bout of alcohol.

You can take Tab PRILOSEC OTC along with Mylanta.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
