I don't know: Its 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 from 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

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.

What could cause a vague aching sensation in my legs after a night of hanging out and drinking alcohol? It's mostly noticeable in my shins and calves.

At age 26 you are a bit young to develop alcoholic neuropathy in the absence of any additional condition (diabetes, B vit low) ...Read more

NO!!!!!!!!!!: The combination of Acetaminophen and alcohol can be extraordinarily dangerous, because alcohol converts the medication into more of the toxic substance which can damage the liver. While normal doses together with "social" drinking will not likely cause harm, even regular doses like 2 500 mg tabs 4 x daily can cause problems with excessive drinking. If you have problems not drinking, get help! ...Read more
