hello to any readers - these symptoms have ruined my life for the last few years and i would really appreciate any light you could shed -
i want to cut the story short and concentrate on one thing -
basically i awoke one day with a burning pain - upper right abdomen just under ribs - accompanied by nausea and diarrhea - i then awoke with this every day for a year and then for years -
the only relief really being through cutting out of mainly fatty foods in the diet -
...except on nights when i got drunk (escaping from the misery of daily feeling unwell) - on the next day i would awake and apart from the hangover feel strangely fine - the pain in my abdomen gone - the hot head and eyes and all the other associated symptoms miraculously absent - these would slowly return over the course of the day -
...i was wondering if this was suggestive of any particular ailment to anybody?
i have had gallbladder ultrasound and there is not duodenal ulcer etc..

well thanks anyway for reading and would really appreciate any advice / ideas at all -
thanks - ross
