Why does my back hurt when i drink? I don't drink alcohol often, but when i drink certain drinks, the middle of my back hurts so badly that I am sometime paralyzed in pain. 
I can drink beer, wine, and most liquirs fine. I cannot drink any pre-mixed drink

That's a curious one: I've never heard of this so i can only make conjectures...Could it be gall bladder pain coming from mixed drinks with milk or fat products? Perhaps there's an explanation in chinese medicine? I don't even know what kind of regular md i would recommend to see. Perhaps start with your primary care provider and see if any clues come up with standard labs, exam, or history.. ...Read more

I'm allergic to wheat, because of this I don't drink beer. Is this really necessary? I'm 25 but have never had beer so I don't how it will affect me.

I'm allergic to wheat, because of this I don't drink beer. Is this really necessary? I'm 25 but have never had beer so I don't how it will affect me.

Likely not: Although it is possible that you may react the beer made from wheat, the amount of wheat protein is rather small in a glass of beer made from wheat. Unless you had an anaphylactic reaction to wheat (in which case you should see an allergist) you may first take a sip to find out if you have any reaction If no problem then you may work the amount up gradually. There are beer made without wheat also. ...Read more
