Sounds a lot like Acid Reflux…or GERD. I have problems when I drink anything with caffeine in it, and the only thing that really helps is a prescription PPI (proton pump inhibitor- causes acid pumps in stomach lining to be "turned off")

Good luck and check with your doc since Acid reflux/GERD can cause esophageal cancer.

When I drink dark liquor I will get heart burn and all of that fun stuff too, so I stay away from that. My reasoning for this is because I have ulcers.
If this keeps up, you might want to get your stomach checked out.

CVS carries sugar free tums that I carry in my bag everywhere I go. Rolaids work awesome too, and prilosec (?) but you have to wait a little for those to start working.

Hope you feel better!

The alcohol shouldn't really stay in your system for too long. It's not like you got totally polluted. Besides checking your sugar, check your temperature and/or blood pressure. A call to the doctor tomorrow should be on your "to do" list if you don't feel better. I know several of my coworkers are out with cold, flu or whatever. Changing temperatures (I scraped frost off my car this morning) may be to blame here. Get well soon!
