Alcohol Consumption :: Tapering Off Wine Using Beer

Okay. So the last time I posted on here I was tapering off wine using beer. That doesn't work. I had one day when I had one beer, was really proud of myself, then had three bottles of my favourite wine to celebrate the next day.

I've tried reducing my intake, as recommended by some lovely people on here. I have come down from three bottles to two. I actually had less than a bottle one day last week and felt really good the next day. Well, as you all know, the next day I celebrated my less than one bottle of wine day by drinking a hell of a lot more.

I have been to my doctor. I was told that what I was drinking wasn't enough to worry about. The fact that I have stomach problems, palpitations, night sweats must be due to my age. He prescribed me with peppermint oil!

Yes, I might be on the perimenopause, I'm 45. But I can't get any help from my GP. I have PTSD. All my GP did was double my dose of my usual medication, prescribe me peppermint oil and send me home. Is it always this difficult to get help?

Are there any other methods I can try to get off this damn demon alcohol?

Alcohol :: Tapering Off Beer / Wine - Unable To Sleep?

It gets to the point where you know you need to stop, but the thought of stopping is a major step.

Two weeks ago, I decided that enough was enough. My three bottles a day habit was starting to get out of control. I would wake up in the morning and my husband would ask me if I was okay. "Yes of course I'm okay. Why?" "Because you fell over last night." The blackouts were starting to scare me.

Sunday I decided that I would start tapering off the following day. Luckily I have a supportive husband and admitted my problem. He bought me very small lagers and printed out the tapering off method from the internet.

Monday: I had the shakes in the morning after three bottles of wine the day before. Luckily I work from home. I had six beers and stopped myself from buying a bottle of wine in the evening. Really bad sleep, nightmares, palpatations and a constant craving for what I knew would help me.

Tuesday: Didn't really wake up okay as I hadn't slept much. Started work. Had four small beers and didn't crave for wine in the evening. I felt shaky and strange. Went to bed and slept for three hours which was unusual for me.

Wednesday: I woke up feeling different. Almost human. I got loads of work done and didn't want a drink. I had one small beer with my dinner and went to bed. I slept for about four hours, had some water and went back to sleep. Amazing.

Thursday: Well I've been a good girl this week. I'll treat myself to a glass of wine. Big mistake. Two bottles down.

Friday: We're going away this weekend. I could just not drink during the week surely? Another two bottles of wine. A few shots at the local........

A week later I'm back where I started.

My problem is that I am scared of stopping. I now know that I can get through the tapering off method without life threatening withdrawals but I contradict myself constantly. My mum has Alzheimer's. I'm helping her, so I need a drink. Oh, I've had a bad day so I deserve a glass of wine, or six. My child is disabled. I deserve a drink because I've had a bad day. The cycle is endless.

I went to the GP yesterday and cried. I told him (it was a locum) that I had a problem. I explained that I couldnt sleep without a drink. I have nightmares (because of my PTSD) and my stomach is playing havoc with my life. He said, "Obviously you have IBS." I said, "Obviously?" He said, "Well yes. you don't drink enough for it to affect your stomach." I walked out of the surgery saying, "Well thanks anyway."

Sorry for the long post but I am really trying and wanted some advice/encouragement to try this tapering off again next week. Does it work? Has anyome done it successfully?

I have already applied to be a patient for a different surgery and will be honest with them too. Hopefully they will point me in the right direction.

Alcohol - First Beer - And My Stomach Hurt A Ton

I had my first beer (age - 15) I didn't have a full one but I drank it somewhat quickly. That night I did eat some junk food. And when I went to bed I couldn't sleep. I wasn't tired at all and my stomach hurt a ton. It hurt in my stomach but I thought it was something like HAV but I have no clue. I really didn't sleep at all and now it's the next morning and I have no appetite and I feel I'll throw up if I eat. Also last night I took a few pepto bismo that didn't help. I was also gaging.

Anxiety :: Xanax 0.5mg + Alcohol (Beer)?

I'm 19 years old.

My doctor prescribed me Xanax 0.25 mg, only for stressful situations, but I feel that 0.25mg it's having no effect at all.

This Sunday I'm going to camp with my friends and I feel very anxious when I'm waiting on lines and my legs shake because of that. So I want to try 0.5mg of Xanax to help my anxiety. But we use to drink beer all day, but not in an way to get severely drunk. Like 8 or 9 beers. So, If I take Xanax 0.5 mg in the morning, and during the day drink beer, will it be a bad interaction?

Fatty Liver :: Symptoms ? Alcohol / Beer Intake

I am 42 years old male.

2 1/2 years ago I had a really bad viral gastro problems. I was admitted to the hospital where they found my liver enzymes and pancreas enzymes were elevated. These went down a day later, and I recovered. I had IBS after this, and started to develop a pain under my right rib and middle back pain. I have had two ultrasounds on my abdomen in the last 2 years, and both were normal.

They tested my gallbladder and found it was only had a 4% EF, so I had surgery and removed this. This was about 8 months ago.

Now 2 1/2 years later, the middle back pain, which also goes up my traps into my neck hurt and a lot of times I get this dull ache under my right rib area, if I bend over and breath deep it hurts. If I push lightly on my rib cage it causes the pain as well.

All my blood work has been good for the last 2 years, other than some slight cholesterol issues. I had my lipase and amylase tested in late 2012 and both were very good.

I went to the doctor and he told me it sounded musculoskeletal and to go try a chiropractor or a physical medicine doctor.

I asked him if he thought it could be my liver and he said he highly doubted it, all he said was "you have some fat in your liver and that was in 2013 when you had an ultrasound done". He never said you have fatty liver disease. He brushed it off as very unlikely.

I just think it's weird all this started right after this viral stomach issues and gallbladder issues and this strange middle back pain and pain under my front rib.

I forgot to mention, I drink alcohol 1-2 times a week, and usually between 7-8 beers but over a 6-7 hour period on weekend.

Foot / Ankle :: Surgery For Glass Removal From Heel

Has anyone dealt with foreign object removal from their heel?

If so, has your heel been able to heal to 100%?

Are you dealing with any problematic scar tissue on your heel?

How long did it take to resolve for you?

I'm eager to get back to deadlifts and squats at the gym and hoping someone can share a positive recovery story.

Here's what happened:

July 5, 2015, I stepped on shard of glass - I was told by a doctor there was no glass in my heel - I was given a tetanus shot, antibiotics and sent on my way. I pushed through the discomfort for several weeks - finally I requested an x-ray, which showed glass in my heel.

August 5, 2015 - the first surgery - unsuccessful - about an hour into surgery in ER (under local anesthetic), the surgeon said he didn't feel comfortable continuing, as he couldn't quite locate the glass and didn't feel comfortable going deeper. He was able to refer me to an orthopedic surgeon.

August 10, 2015 - the second surgery - successful - the orthopedic surgeon said retrieving the glass was very difficult -he was "mucking around for a while" and "it was like finding a needle in a haystack."

I was given painkillers and antibiotics and instructions not to change the bandaging or take off the tensor bandage for the first 3 days. The first night was horrendous in terms of pain - my pain tolerance is pretty high - how I would describe the pain would be, an extreme burning sensation on the top of my foot (like my skin was being peeled off and then lit on fire) - I was going to go back into ER, but as soon as I got up, the rush of blood into my foot relieved the pain. So for that night, and basically the first 2-3 days, I just kept standing up every 1-2 hours to allow blood-flow into my foot. I ended up loosening the tensor bandage after two days.

August 20, 2015 - stitches removed - unfortunately I had an infection, so I was given a 7 day course of antibiotics.

Sept. 11, 2015 - follow-up appt. - incision still not 'together' and some leakage - I was told a minor infection was still present and given a 10 day course of antibiotics.


I'm still on crutches - my heel is still tender and the skin is still somewhat open on the surface (was told it will heal from inside out) - I can't stand normally - I have some pins and needles under my foot near my toes - the skin around the heel is very tight and ankle mobility is reduced - ankle feels very weak (probably from not walking).

I'm now seeing the surgeon more consistently to have the healing monitored more closely.

I haven't been given a time-frame of when I'll be 'normal' and be able to resume my life before the injury.
As you can tell, I'm eager to get back to being mobile and living actively.

I'm just looking to hear from someone who has dealt with something similar, so I can keep positive and start thinking of time-frames for myself.

Orlistat :: Gluten Free - Can Take Wine?

I've just been prescribed orlistat completely out of the blue by my GP... And I'm also gluten free as I have a very high intolerance now. So its quite difficult planning meals but think I'm doing ok!

My breakfasts and lunches seem to be between 5 and 10g fat then main meals are nearer to 15g. Is this ok?

What if I want a skinny latte outside of mealtimes, these work out at 2.2g fat... would that make me poorly?

Also am I able to drink wine? I appreciate the calorific issues with wine but I'd still like to enjoy a few glasses on the weekends, I'm more concerned about an orange explosion if I do?
