Common Questions and Answers about Alcohol allergy muscle pain

alcohol

The severe form of acute alcoholic myopathy is associated with the sudden onset of muscle pain, swelling, and weakness; a reddish tinge in the urine caused by myoglobin, a breakdown product of muscle excreted in the urine; and a rapid rise in muscle enzymes in the blood. Avoidance of alcohol is the main treatment available.Other treatment options include antihistaminics,corticosteroids and immunotherapy. Hope it helps.
I asked for help on here a couple weeks ago for my alcohol intolerance/allergy. The first couple of times I ever drank I my forearms would swell up and break out in hives and itch very badly. I haven't gotten the hives in a while but my forearms still swell up and itch. Someone on here told me that I should take an antihistamine such a levocetrizine or cetrizine. I took 1 Zyrtec and I felt fine for a couple of hours but my arms eventually swelled up and started to itch again.
I have experienced similar situations, only with hard alcohol with a fruity flavored drink and only when and if I drink it too fast, I have severe chest pain, muscle pain in the back and chest area and it last approx 20 mins! Its extremely paiinful and unconfortable and does not happen at all with beer, just fruity mixed drinks, I originall thought it was a type of alcohol, but now I dont think that the alcohol has anything to do with it.
I had one pathologist say it was a sign of Hodgkin's Disease, and I had one say that maybe it could be from gerd, but my Gastroenterologist has never heard of this from any of his patients. Google alcohol induced pain, most of it is regarding Hodgkin's Disease.
As I waited for my appointment with a neurologist, other symptoms appeared. My body was itchy and burning, I had muscle spasms and pain, the pain and spasms came along with burning sensations. My neck began hurting so much I felt as if my head was too heavy for it. I had tingling and numbing sensations all over, even on my lips and tongue. I also experienced migranes. I remember having such a bad migrane one saturday morning and ever since I now see visual floaters.
So it is my opinion that your are experiencing an allergy like response. It may happen with all alcohol or you may find that there is only one type or one brand that you can consume. I am sorry that this happens to you. If it is the alcohol it should also happen when you take a cough medication or mouthwash that also contains alcohol. If it is important to you than I would suggest that you consult an allergist. Best of luck to you.
I also feel depressed all the time and I have horrible muscle pain and body aches. I can be perfectly fine one day and the next day I wake up and my whole body aches for weeks. It's so bad I feel like I've been run over by an 18 wheeler truck. It's so bad that I can barely move and I'm miserable. Then it will suddenly go away just as quickly and mysteriously as it came on. I also can't do anything physical now without getting severe muscle pain.
And it did the same thing. Could I have an allergy to Alcohol in general? I am at a total loss. Posted by CCF Neuro[P] MD, RPS on April 25, 1999 at 18:27:38 Dear Lynn: Sorry, it sure seems to be that way. What I would do, especially if you are the type that needs a alcoholic beverage now and then. Go on the wagon for a few months and then give yourself a retry. I was really hoping that the affect was something in the wine process and not alcohol per se.
To date, I would say that, after all the loud clicking from my neck and spine, my 'pain-after-alcohol' has reduced by around 20%-30% - altho' I'm still getting the odd 'thumper' from time to time. Strangely enough, as I may have mentioned before, exerting finger pressure (in my case) to the left of my neck vertebrae relieved the headache considerably. And this is where the chiropractor is now working - without me telling him this.
I highly doubt that cutting back on carbs caused an intolerance to alcohol. A person can suddenly develop an intolerance/allergy overnight. Here's an interesting read on alcohol intolerance. http://www.foodreactions.org/intolerance/alcohol/index.
Hi, Caffeine Allergy Symptoms Caffeine allergy symptoms range from a minor rash to life threatening seizures. The severity of the reaction depends on what the person is actually allergic to and to what extent a person is allergic. Some of the reactions associated with caffeine allergies include difficulty breathing, shock, tongue, and facial swelling.
I woke during the night with a terrible migraine, congestion, muscle and joint pain, burning and sizzling extremeties, dizziness, fatigue and stomach nausea and pain. I was convinced I had a stomach bug. Here I am 4 days later still home in bed and symtpoms getting worse! I started to keep a food diary and discovered that garlic was the common denominator! I don't eat any processed foods and my diet is already very limited because of food intolerances. It finally hit me!
I am thankful to have found this online. I have had this issue ever since my 2nd c section 2 yrs ago. I had a 10lb baby so my abs were damaged. The "charlie horse" description is perfect to describe the pain and the "lock" of the muscle. Afterwards I am so sore for days and the pain is so severe. I am having a CT scan tomorrow. I am wondering if surgery can repair the muscle?
I was diagnosed with some type of neuropathy about 6 years ago of a so far unknown cause. About the same time I developed symptoms of fatique, muscle weakness, joint pain, burning/tinglinng/numbness, loss of balance at times after I eat certain foods. This happens every time I eat certain foods and has become quit disabling. I can only eat all natural vegetables and fresh meats.
My knee looks fine now, but I've got mild pain from time to time in various joints. I sometimes also have muscle pain in my legs. And recently, I started to notice strange things in the skin in my hands. They looks like small insect bites, or probably more like some very smal "balls" under the skin. They are a bit painful if pressed. They come and go, in different parts of the hands.
Sudden, severe joint and muscle pain from the hips down, particularly in the ankles and knees - lasts several hours; Itching skin everywhere, including arms, legs, feet, in the ears, scalp, hands, face, etc.
These things could be stress related you you could have had a tear in the muscle. Just keep working it out and it will get rid of the pain. www.chirofacts.
So anyway this last few days typically over Christmas I have been feeling really ill again, persistent head pressure along with classic Sinusitis symptoms, frontal headache, pain behind eyes, pain in upper teeth and cheeks, strangely not much in the way of congestion .
Hey Everyone, I'm a longtime member of MedHelp forums, actually longer than my current member name (since 2004) but this is my first post on the dysautonomia forum (I think). With this being my first post in this forum-category, thought I'd give a little of my health background before I pose my question.
When I got home I'd done an internet search about the validity of IgG testing for food allergy and everything I read said it wasn't valid. As if I didn't feel stupid enough, both my gynecologist (who believes in the book Wheatbelly etc. and will only prescribe bio-identical hormones) and the immunlogist said the test has no meaning.

You stated you took vitamins, most people dont know that the majority of people who take vitamins dont get the nutriants from them due to intestinal parasites. This could be the cause your stomach pain also. When you drink alcohol, it depletes your vitamins anyway, so, if you have alot of parasites (everyone does) no vitamins are getting to your system. Go to a homeopathic Doctor, they can test you for these little buggers. Also, google thiamine deficiantcy signs.
1) Can allergies or sinus cause the daily head pressure and tinnitus? No pain, just a heavy and tight feeling from my eyebrows, temples to the back of my head. Wake up with it. Only goes away when outside exercising. Constant dust inside and outside this place with pollution. Extreme heat going from AC into 120 degree. Has cooled off now, but symptoms remain.
However, I also have Fibromyalgia so I still get some fatigue and pain daily. I notice my pain is a little agitated by caffeine and stress.
Most people still don’t know about this risk and don’t realize that acetaminophen is in hundreds of OTC cold, allergy and headache products and some prescription pain relievers. Check labels for acetaminophen, and don’t take more than 4 grams—equal to eight Extra Strength Tylenol tab--lets—a day from all sources. Alcohol (three drinks or more at a time) and certain other drugs increase the risk. Heavy drinkers and those with liver disease should at least limit, acetaminophen.
You could very well have developed an intolerance to alcohol, also, you could have developed an allergy to sulfates, I understand that sulfates are in alcohol.
I hate to keep going to the doctor everytime there is an ache or pain, I feel like I may over reacting. This pain does not feel like acid or gas. More like something is inflammed. I am concerned that I may have something seriously wrong with me, but don't know if I even have symptoms of anything. There is no fever, occasional loose bowels but not bad, no blood. I also have been going through a lot of life changes lately which have been very stressful. I am on no medication.
I have pain at the to of my nose, tightening across the forehead, pain in my ears, pain behind my eyes, tingling sensations all over, I'm so scared
