Im 21 and 4 months ago, i went on holiday to Cyprus for 3 weeks. I drank alcohol most nights, however not over excessively.
After the 1st week I noticed every time i drank even water or coke, i felt bloated and felt nauseous. Extreme burping as well.
A few days later my apetite went, and i hardly drank or ate anything as i was in fear of being sick or feeling bloated.
Now even upon my return this bloating feeling stayed and kept burping after eating/drinking.
I had an endoscopy and they said nothing major was wrong just a rumpled duodenum?. They said I have to eat small meals and prescribed esemaprazole
It has calmed down now as i have taken esemeprazole for an extensive amount of time.
I generally feel fine now, except I notice every time I drink more than 1 or 2 glasses of lager/beer or wine I feel bloated and uncomfortably. Also I feel a small bubble in the side of my stomach which feels like its filling up with liquid??
I'm not an alcoholic nor do i need to drink, But its making me sad and upset everytime I go out with freinds to a bar I feel nauseous everytime I have a few alcoholic beverages.
I have never been a heavy drinker, drinking from 17 years of age. Only drank on the weekend.
I would highly appreciate it, if anyone would have any solutions or help? I Have considered in the future going without drinking any fizzy drinks or alcohol for 1 year to see if this heals any damage I may have done? As i do not want this problem to stay with me for life.
