Hello dear

Alcohol is a stomach irritant and may cause vomiting. It also depresses your gag reflex. Due to these you are feeling discomfort and pain in abdomen. Alcohol stimulate the intestine and as you are suffering from IBS its effect is more.

IBS patient are advised to avoid alcohol, caffaine, tea etc. which stimulate intestine. You must not take heavy meals and avoid stress.

For the treatment of it you firstly take antibiotics by consulting your doctor and change your life style:

1. Do regular exercises
2. Avoid alcohol, smoking, tea etc
3. take high fibre diet
4. aviod stress

take care and have speedy recovery
