Hi - I have been a regular consumer of alcohol for 5-6 years. Approximately 6 weeks since my last drink. I am currently in pain from severe tightness of muscles in my right shoulder and arm. X-rays and CT scan have ruled out any injuries. My work involves sitting at a computer for long periods. Could my abstaining from alcohol be causing the pain in my muscles. I am having weekly deep tissue massage (5 weeks). However, I thought I would be better by now.
hi,was X ray cervical spine done?.Although,muscle tremors are related with withdrawls but not muscle spasm.Best for you will be to have some central muscle relaxants(diazapam,tizanidine etc) along with folic acid.
