Several possibilites: Your body objects to processing alcohol. Pain is meant to tell us something is amiss. This could be expressed as referred pain from your stomach, liver and/or kidneys. Worth a visit to your doc to get lab work (liver function), physical exam and discuss any other symptoms going on. More diagnostic info is needed to be able to comment in any more detail.

Back pain and drinking: Hello , i'm sorry you're having trouble . I cannot make any connect any direct connection between your back and and drinking. We need a lot more specifics :where in your back? How many times has this happened? Are you doing anything else while drinking? How much did you drink?
