Thanks for the question.

These symptoms arise suspicion of compromised liver function.Such symptoms can actually be seen in many causes like congestive cardiac and kidney failure etc.But since you have history of drinking, possibility of liver failures needs to be considered first.

Few investigations which need to be undertaken in your case are sonography,LFT,chest xray and few blood investigations.

I would recommend to see your doctor sooner.

Please ask if there are further questions.Regards.
