In brief: Risk of arthritis!

Soda consumption is associated with increased risk of diabetes & heart disease, but a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (7/2014) found that sugary sodas when consumed regularly can increase by 63% the risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis.
More likely than not however your situational back pain reflects referred discomfort from a distended gut due to the fizz in soda.
