Stomach pain with diarrhea after binge drinking

do not drink very often at all. I am 21, 225lbs and 6ft tall and no medical history . Iv only been drinking on and off for a period of 6 months. Three nights ago i drank a lot more than i ever have, got sick and threw up then went to sleep. I woke up a few hours later and felt fine then went back to sleep. The next day however i threw up once more in the morning and had a stomach ache and Diarrhea . The pain is in my upper abdomin or stomach area and i dont feel pain unless standing or sitting up and even then it is only intermitent. like a cramp . I have now had this two and a half days. What is wrong with me? Do i need to go to the doctor? Am i overreacting to think that i may have acute pancreatitis? Can that be caused by one night of hard drinking? is the Diarrhea caused by Gastritis? When i start feeling the stomach pain i usually have to go to the bathroom and then the pain goes away for a little while.

Hello;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
You had vomiting after binge in night and that may be due to alcohol but this pain in abdomen and diarrhoea is not due to alcohol and it may be due to infection of stomach and intestine.Please consult a doctor ;get examined and he will treat you with the necessary antibiotics and will give you medicines to stop the pain in abdomen and vomiting if you have.
Thanks

Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic



Since recently you drank much more than before, it have resulted in Acute Gastritis.. hence you have abdominal pain, diarrhea, and abdominal discomfort... you must quit taking alcohol until you are cured of this gastritis... do not take hot spicy foods, coffee, or beverages ... have good sleep, by doing above things the gastritis will reduce within 2 weeks and complete recovery will takes place by 4 weeks... antacids like tab.pantaparzole 40 mg once a day for a weeks is required...
