Back pain when drinking fruity alcohol?


Q: Hi I have been having a unlexplained pain in the lower back. It only happens after drinking sugary drinks like mikes hard lemonade or wine coolers, also mixed drinks . I get what feels like needles criss crossing into my spine and also a pain around the front like an ache in my abdomen. It also does go up my back and neck but is most awful in the lower back. Sometimes It also hurts in my arms. I have hypothyroidism like a few people have mentioned but dont see any correlation.Its a severe pain lasting only about 20 minutes. This has always happend when I mix sugar and alchohol

thankyou for helping!
