Pain in legs & hips head aches and indigestion lack of energy all started since I quit drinking are these normal symtoms?

Temporarily: (obviously more information needed) how long ago did you quit drinking, and how much were you drinking? Overall stopping drinking is good for your health, but there are acute withdrawal symptoms, as your body adjusts. Think back how you felt any given morning after a drunk night. Not so good probably, symptoms would be relieved by alcohol's putting you back in semi-stupor. Break that cycle! ...Read more

None of them: Proper diet, exercise and healthy lifestyle is what I recommend to anyone for strength.

Please advise if it's bad to drink an energy drink and then work out?

Talk to a trainer: Or a sports medicine physician, and neither of them would recommend it. Energy drinks are not all the same - some of them are just caffeine, others have large amounts of sugar, and some have caffeine plus a lot of other stuff of unknown usefulness - like vitamins and taurine. In some cases, they are no different than a good strong cup of coffee, and others are caffeine OD's waiting to happen. ...Read more

Will drinking an energy drink with no sugar or calories daily get someone sick?

Will drinking an energy drink with no sugar or calories daily get someone sick?

Probably not: 1 energy drink a day will probably not do any serious damage to you. However, it is not supporting your health.

They can be quite dangerous in large quantities. Which means they are not healthy overall. ...Read more
