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?
