Just bloating of abdomen does not indicate that you have pancreatitis
. It may be because of other reasons like dyspepsia
and gastritis which also can be caused by heavy alcohol intake. Accumulation of fluid in the abdomen can also cause it but it occurs after significant liver damage
. Pancreatitis is more likely if you have severe pain
in the abdomen radiating to the back and pale, oily stools. Blood levels of amylase and lipase are raised in pancreatitis. You must stop drinking to avoid further harmful consequences. Since you are unable to stop drinking yourself, please see a doctor, preferably a psychiatrist
, who can help you stop drinking by prescribing medicines. Till you get to see a doctor, take over the counter antacids for relief in bloating and discomfort.
You can also consider joining the Alcoholics Anonymous. While they cannot help you with medical treatment, they provide you with support that helps one stay sober for long.
Hope this helps you. Best wishes.
