Brief Answer:
Ultrasound abdomen is mandatory to evaluate your symptoms

Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir

I can certainly understand your concern.

In view of postural variation of pain and alcohol intake, the possibility of a pancreatic, liver or a pelvic abnormality is high. Hence it's advisable to get an ultrasound abdomen at the earliest to determine further course of action.

Meanwhile medications like Pantoprazole and Hyocamine will help to get over the symptoms. Please check with your physician if he shares my view and if can prescribe these medications to you.

Review with reports to determine further course of action.

Post your further queries if any
Thank you
