Right side pain and sore lower back pain, very sore, drank a lot of alcohol 24hrs ago. Any ideas?

EtOH-> dehydration: Alcohol dehydation can predispose muscle injury, and also predispose to kidney stones (which can cause back pain on one side- typically sporadically cramping; look for blood in the urine).
Avoid tylenol (acetaminophen) with alcohol as both can injure the liver.
Drink plenty of water (avoid excessive caffeine as this can also dehydrate). ...Read more

I keep getting a very sore back of my neck about a day after drinking alcohol, is this normal?

I keep getting a very sore back of my neck about a day after drinking alcohol, is this normal?

Interesting, No: "Is that normal": No. But, what is the mechanism? Not clear. Both sides, back of neck? Any other muscle involvement? If both sides and no other symptoms then maybe stress issues associated with drinking. Do you get migraine or tension headaches? If one side then maybe something to do with how you sleep. If other symptoms then possibilities expand. ...Read more

Why do I get sore and depressed after drinking alcohol?

I don't know: It's clinical lore that alcohol causes depressive disorders. There is no evidence in the literature to support this. Alcohol is a CNS depressant, which is entirely different than saying a substance causes depressed mood. There are substances that have potential to cause depression (interferon), but alcohol isn't one of them. However, alcohol *intoxication* can cause mood lability (incl depression). ...Read more

Both are toxins which can interact in your body to have a greater effect than either alone. However, don't assume that's what's causing your pain--see your primary medical doctor.

Stomach sore to touch after drinking alcohol and eating spicey food?

Where is it sore?: And how much alcohol? Which spicy food? How long ago between when you ate, drank and onset of symptoms? Were you having any vomiting or diarrhea earlier? These are the questions that would help me better understand the nature of your problem. Without this information I'm afraid my advice won't be very specific. I do suggest though, that if the pain persists or is over the right upper abdomen, CMD2Day ...Read more
