    Pain days after drinking alcohol


    I've read of alcohol increasing inflammation among other many negative effects alcohol can have. consumed about 10 drinks total this past weekend which is extremely rare for me. Don't do that in 3 months. (had a bad weekend) Anyways.. i've been in really bad pain all week for no apparent reason. I'm wondering if this is related to sluggish neurotransmitter function from alcohol withdrawl or is there more to it? anyone have any info on this?

    Years ago I remember having extreme joint pain after alcohol abuse but haven't consumed this many drinks in a long time. Never figured out why this happens. thanks

    You've poisoned yourself. It will take awhile for your body to recover.

    Then again, you could have injured your joints while drunk (you jump off anything, dance wildly, etc.)?

    I'm not talking about getting intoxicated here but is it possible that my body cannot tolerate alcohol and it has become like poison to me?

    I'm looking for some scientific reasons why this would happen.

    other than your liver shutting down, not really. i would look more into websters under "drunken falls" or see "dancing like an idiot"

    Yes. There are enzymes which break-down alcohol and your level of these enzymes can change over time. Some people have genetic deficiencies in these enzymes. Moreover, as one gets older, one's ability to process toxins diminishes.

    When I was young, I used to consume great quanities of alcohol, get up go to work and then drink again that night with no apparent ill effect. Today, I can feel the negative effects of just a few drinks.

    If you're still experiencing these symptoms days after your binge, I would suggest that you call a doctor. There might be something serious going on that might or might not be related to your alcohol consumption. Muscle soreness is a common symptom to a lot of conditions but one of which is liver damage.

    Alcohol is C R A P.
    It's the worst drug I've ever tried... And I've tried many.

    Steer clear of alcohol.

    Just because it's "Legal" doesn't mean it's good.

    wow.. that makes a lot of sense. so yeah basically i am poisoning myself and my body no longer can take alcohol so the smart thing to do is avoid it completely.

    Years ago I drank a lot before I got into a healthy lifestyle. Before cutting back I did notice how not even getting drunk I would feel pretty crappy in a matter of a few drinks. I haven't took this many drinks in a long time so apparently it's done some permanent damage. Alcohol is no joke.

    I'm back to feeling somewhat myself but it really knocked me out for the whole week. Felt sluggish as anything. I requested a blood test from the dr. and would like to get the liver profile done among other things. Would u suggest anything specific besides that? Thanks for the post seriously!

    I'd listen to what your doctor says. Let him/her discover if there is anything serious going on. If you come back ok, then you might look into sam-e supplementation as a way to help repair any damage that was done.

    I also know that apple cider vinegar for a few days before a party makes the morning after MUCH more enjoyable.

    I've read sam-e is very poorly absorbed in the stomach and has to be taken completly on a empty stomach. Atleast 2 hours before or after a meal. Do you have any experience with it?
    I got a great liver sup I can take with milk thistle, NAcysteine, betaine, ext. I may take that again for a month to replenish it. I did a liver detox last year. Supplements and herbs for a month. I really didn't notice any difference in my health at all.

    Sam-e is best absorbed on an empty stomach AND it's a pretty fragile compound (exposure to moisture causes it to degrade (hence the individually foiled pills in most formulations). I mentioned it because there is solid scientific evidence for its use.

    My advice is to wait out your lab results first. You don't want to go self-medicating and make a condition (if you have one) worse.

    I did some research before taking Sam-e and now use it during my post cycle therapy. Its ****ing awesome!! I take it 30-45min before first meal.
