Since January I have been having problem when I drink alcohol. I INSTANTLY retain water and can't pee it out! For years, whenever I drank alcohol I would pee it out all night and even feel lighter the next day. Now, after just a few sips I can feel the water coming on, and I will be a few lbs heavier over the next 2-3 days. It's horrible to not be able to enjoy drinking anymore and I love doing it socially! What can be causing this? Bloodwork shows nothing wrong with my kidneys yet I can't flush it out! I did test positive for yeast and on medication for it (not candida), parasites (took medication), and gastritis (on prevacid). I have had gastritis years ago but still didn't have this issue.
Please help. I want to be able to drink socially again. I am gluten and dairy free and know I have developed recent allergies to eggs and almonds so food isn't the issue here as I'm avoiding all intolerances.
