    What causes severe abdominal pain after alcohol consumption?

Posted on Tue, 8 Aug 2017 in Mental Health
Question: I had an emotional melt down due to receiving a severe shock. I ended up drinking a large amount of whiskey and I lost it. I was screaming for hours and I attempted suacide. This happened 4 days ago. Now I am trying to recover but I am having severe intestinal pain whenever I talk

Brief Answer:
I think it is possible

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using Icliniq.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

From of all I feel that any kind of emotional shock can shatter the confidence of any individual and I think it can be understood to have a large amount of whisky after the shocking incident.

However when it comes to recovery it takes lots of energy and effort from the person. In my opinion having resilience and continuing effort must help you to recover from the shock.

Although it is time taking process but I feel use of PPI medication such as pentoprazole 40 mg or omeprazole 20 mg must help you in intestinal pain. These medicines are over the counter medication and can be purchased without prescription.
In case the pain persists despite use of medication visiting a doctor is advised.

I hope this helps you.
Feel free to write back to me if you have more questions.
Thanks and regards.

Thank you doctor. I feel tired and immediate intestine pain especially when I talk. Did I damage my intestines from the screaming?

Brief Answer:
Alcohol could be the cause for pain

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for follow up.

Alcohol is well established cause for acute abdominal pain as it affects multiple organs including stomach, pancreas, liver among others. It is rightly possible that alcohol may have damaged one of these organs and causing pain.

However I like to clarify that with removal of it the damage can be recovered over time.

Screamingis is unlikely cause for damages to your intestine.

I hope this helps you further.
Thanks and regards.
