Likely unrelated : Depending on which antibiotic you are on and the reason you are taking them and how much you drank the pain you are experiencing is probably unrelated. However the area in your back that hurts is near your kidney and if you drank a lot and the antibiotic is metabolized/excreted through the kidney then you may be overworking them. Or it may be muscle strain. Best not to drink when taking any meds. ...Read more
Minor concussion a week ago. Symptoms completely gone after 2 days. When can I go back to exercising, drinking alcohol, and drinking coffee?
Do not rush: you may find that exercise brings back symptoms of your concussion. Do not rush trying to get back to full exercise tolerance. Start slowly and build up slowly.
