Every time I go out and I have a couple of pints (2 not excessive) I seem to have very sore bowel and loose stools. Is this something worry about?

Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out.

What you are having is alcohol induced gastritis. To avoid it, if you take alcohol,avoid taking neat ones and keep yourself well hydrated after each drink.Also munch some light snacks with alcohol.

If the symptoms persist then you can take some PPI blockers like Omeprazole or pantocid for 4-6 weeks after consulting your physician.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
