I am 27 years old guy. I had a habit of drinking alcohol daily.
I quit drinking 15 months back without any medical treatment or anything.
i just decided to do it and quit it. Now it's 16th month when i have never consumed alcohol within these 15 months.

But before i quit it, i suffered from a big problem.
Now here i tell you the amount i used to drink those days:
360 ml a day - whiskey daily
I used to drink 90 ml of alcohol in one shot i.e. top to bottom in less water. i used to take 4 shots of 90 ml alcohol in around 3-4 hours.
One day when i didn't eat anything and went on drinking alcohol, after some time i felt weakness and i went to sleep.
when i got up there was a pain in my stomach. I drank a glass of water but it came back and i vomited it. i was not able to eat or drink anything.
The feeling in my chest was like there was something kept in my chest like a stone. I noticed that there was a swelling between my chest and stomach (i think it is liver)
Next day i felt a little bit better than previous day.

Still i have a swelling in my liver (i am not sure). i don't feel hungry, i do not feel any energy, i don't feel any interest in anything.
I have lost my stamina in doing my work. I have gas problems. I guess my digestion is not getting done well. I think i had gone through liver inflammation.
But good thing about me is i do not drink and i never have a feeling to drink due to my strong will power.

Kindly let me know the severity of my problem. is it dangerous?
Please suggest the treatment on this.
I will be very thankful if i ever get rid of this problem.

Thanks and Regards,

It is difficult to give a opinion if the findings you are worried about are normal or they are related to some medical disorder.

A proper physical examination will help to clear all your doubts.

It would be highly recommended that you consult your doctor who can examine you and provide a proper medical opinion.
