Whenever my boyfriend drinks alcohol, his neck muscles get sore and painful. It generally lasts around 10 minutes. It doesn't take a lot for the symptoms to start and when he drinks, he doesn't get tipsy or drunk.
Google only seems to give answers about cancer but these are his neck muscles, not his lymph nodes. Anyone experience something similar or have any input?
I experience the same symptons as your boyfriend. I've learned that I cannot drink ANY rum, malted beverages (such as Smirnoff Ice; Mike's Hard Lemonade, etc.) and any "cheap", no-name vodkas. I have no reaction when I drink beer, well-vodkas, tequilas, wines, or whiskeys.
I was reading about gluten-free diets and they listed what alcohols are gluten-free and to stay away from flavored alcohol and malted beverages. So I thought maybe it had something to do with the gluten in these drinks but on second thought, I get no reaction when I drink beer and beer has gluten in it.
I'm trying to find out why also and that's when I came across your post.
Yep same thing happens to me! It's happened since I began sinking but mine lasts for the entire time I drink. My mothers a nurse and she says I'm a hypochondriac but looking on the web, it seems like a Ligit thing. Some people say it cancer, brain tumor, allergies, hodgkins, etc and I'm starting to get real worried. If anyone has ears back from their docter please let me know!!
I have it too... but it's not usually when I'm drinking. Moreso at the end of the night and tends to be for pretty much the entire next day! Not pleasant. I manage a wine retail store and wine bar so drinking a bit is usually difficult to avoid. Guess I'm going to have to find a new gig!!
Good luck to everyone else with your respective pains :/
After mixing way too many different types of liquor last night even I woke up perfectly fine. I don't get hangovers so I guess I really don't know what a hangover feels like, but later today I started getting pains in my ribs, back and neck. Like I got into a fight and lost. It's so confusing...
Comments like this do not help. I have an issue with pain on the back of my neck that feels like nerve issues. Some of us like to drink, and have very sevear reprocussions from just a little drink. We are aware that it should not be so sevear and would like to know why. Your diagnosis of "stop drinking" is not an explanation, so stop making them.
