Sharp Lower Back Pain When Drinking Sugary Alcohol


Q: I'm female, 24. I have been having an unexplained pain in the lower back. It only happens after drinking sugary drinks like mikes hard lemonade or wine coolers . 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. Its a severe pain lasting only about 20 minutes. This has always happens when I mix sugar and alcohol. What could this be from?
