An MD is critical in assessing potential damage from alcohol or drug use

  • anonymous Asks ...

    How do I know if I have liver damage from drinking. I do not drink every day but I do get drunk 3 or 4 times a week for about 20 years. Now in the morning after I get drunk my insides kind of hurt but it goes away if I do not drink again.

    You sound concerned about your health and worried about potential damage your drinking could have caused.

    The only way to know what is going on is to make and appointment with an MD.

    Although there are numerous articles on the net, including this one, which outline signs and symptoms for liver damage, the only way to know for certain is to see a doctor in person for an evaluation.  (The liver is not the only organ vulnerable from alcohol abuse.  Your stomach and your pancreas could be damaged and the cause of your pain).

    Don't wait, call an MD today!
