Dull Pain After Drinking Alcohol

I drink nearly every day; usually a little and sometimes alot.  For about a year now, after a good night of drinking, I have noticed a dull pressure just under the lowest rib on my left side.  At first it would go away after a few hours; but as time goes on, it lingers more and more.  I have stopped drinking from time to time, and for awhile of course it helps, but when I start again, it comes right back.  Another observation is... several months ago, my (ex)girlfriend called me to say that she had picked-up a social disease; I know, GREAT!  Anyway, I go to the free clinic, and they give me a single dose of FLAGIL  [fla-jill] (I think the spelling is correct?) and send me on my way.  Of course I did not drink that week as I wanted the antibiotic to work; however, when I resumed drinking, there was no dull pressure???  It took about a month before I noticed it was returning.  The dull pain, not the sexual disease that is.  Obviously I like to drink and probably always will.  Many in my family drink and do not have the same issues, which makes me wonder if the symptoms are a result of something else... which surfaces after drinking?   Any suggestions?

Hi
Welcome to the forum!
The dull pain after drinking alcohol can be due to chronic pancreatitis or acidity or even gastric reflux. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined.
Since your ex girlfriend has informed you about STD (is that what you mean by social disease?), then you must get a complete STD panel done. Taking Flagyl only will not help.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
