Post Dangers of Alcohol to digestion

In the month of April I did a lot of binge drinking. Beer, wine, and vodka. No vomiting or passing out unconcious. The symtoms started in mid June. Could the alki have done something to my system??

And I don't think I have STDS because i have not had any sexual relations in over 4 years. Yeah pretty sad, but hey some people just can't get over the little body flaws that everybody is born with.

Well I am 20 years old. Male. And I've had my drinking days. I've had a stomach/over all digestive system problem for over 6 weeks now. I've been on prevacid for a week did not work and then later an internist told me to take a stong dose of flagl for a week. Nothing worked. And I've been to 3 MDs already. The results were Gastristus, bacteria, or ulcer. And I've been on medication and it has not gone away by any means. This does not feel like any thing the doctors diagnosed it as. I am having a lot of fullness in the stomach almost 24 hours a day every day, it gets worse when I eat, the feeling is similar to having a tight big rubber band around the stomach. What also I've noticed is that it felt like the disease left my stomach and moved up to my throat for several days and NO it do not feel great. It felt like my entire espophogas was being constricted and even twisted and it was hard to swallow. Then it the feeling went back down to my stomach within a couple days. Then it felt like it moved down towards my bladder area and gave me odd feelings when I urinted. Slight burning urine all the time. And chronic uncomfortable feelings. And then it moves back up to the stomach within several days and stays there for weeks. This cycle occurs off and on BUT the discomfort is pretty much chronic. Also I noticed increased fatigue and weakness if I do any type of VERY slight physical excersise.
But also I've done research and believe it may be a FUNGI infection. Several months before I got this disease I had been doing A LOT of drinking of wine and beer on THREE occasions in the month of april. I got this annoying and scary problem in mid JUNE.
Remember I have no sharp pains (Maybe a couple of pains from GAS). Just an over bad feeling in the stomach. The stools look OK nothing bloody. I did have diarehhia the other day right after I drank milk and the diarehiia had milk in it. ( I never get sick from milk.) The urine tests and blood tests they did 6 weeks ago were FINE. But did they test for FUNGUS in the urine??? who knows.
I hope you guys can help me.

P.S.- no vomiting at all. Had some slight nausea for about 3 seconds the other day. Nothing really obvious.

Pain scale 1-10 differs throughout the week and days. I'd say it ranges from 2-6. Pain is mostly just very tight and discomfort and sometimes heavy feeling and punched in the tummy feeling.
