Speculation only!:: A metabolic anomaly that 1) impairs liver's ability to detoxify ethanol; 2) makes your brain ultrasensitive to ethanol; 3) ditto re peripheral nerves; 4) sensitivity to nonalcoholic ingredients in the beverage; 5) alien DNA (not likely, may be discounted).

Never discount Alien DNA if they are willing to pay full price.....

Possibly: They are of two types. The leiomyoma occurs in the skin or gut but the common form is the uterine fibroid. Rhabdomyomas are rare tumors of muscles, they occur in childhood and often become malignant assuming this is a uterine fibroid, if it were in the proper anatomic location it could cause vascular compromise, nerve compression, pelvic cramping or even a referred pain pattern.

Maybe...: We suggest rest, ice, elevation, compression and NSAID of choice. You don't necessarily have to stop, but you may need to back off some. If it worsens, you may have to stop and get it checked out.

Not typically: Usually, the pain from surgery is one after the first few weeks. Pain after this period is more commonly associated with hamstring and pes tendinitis. This comes from quad weakness and poor quad control after surgery which takes time, effort, and patience to correct. Some patients can do this on their own with surgeon direction, others need formal physical therapy.
