Mild tenderness near diaphragm, dry metallic taste in mouth, frequent urination after excessive alcohol. Long term damage to the body?

Hi , i don t usually drink heavily and last sunday nearly 6 days ago, I indulged in possibly a few too many beers(approx 10 standard drinks in 6 hours), I have since experienced mild tenderness(like burning) near the top of the diaphram, including dry metalic taste in mouth, my bathroom visits have been less frequent and the stools vary but tend to be semi formed and dark with little to no apparent smell, it is the same for the urine ..Prior to this, I consumed very small amounts of alcohol and for the last 6 months was on prescription medication for anxiety ... I am of course concerned I have inflicted major harm on my body with possible serious long term health effects, Your help and perspective on my situation is much appreciated, Thankyou Regards, Matt

Hi Matt
You seem to suggest that this is the first time you have had excessive amounts of alcohol.
Given that you are on medications for anxiety disorder, I would strongly advise you to quit alcohol because it has the potential to worsen anxiety (especially during the withdrawal phase) and there is a high risk of you getting addicted to alcohol.
Alcohol may relieve your anxiety for brief periods of time, however, in the long run it is bad for your physical and mental health.
I suggest you to talk to your psychiatrist about alcohol use also, in case you are not able to get over the habit.
