Drinking and Joint Aches
Went for quite the bender yesterday, and 5 tall cans down the line, I wake up the next day feeling like a rickety house. Not so much of a mental fog, as I had properly hydrated to insure against it. However, my bones and joints feel creeky, if that description makes any sense. Sort of like a floorboard that makes a sound when you step on it. This is the first time I've experienced this, currently 22, with 3 or so years of moderate-level college drinking in the rear view. Been low-carb for a few months now, have a top physique, and haven't drank to excess in the recent past. Wondering if low tolerance or my diet could have made me more alcohol sensitive. In a nutshell, many of my joints exhibit a certain ache; it feels like I could be on the way to a retirement home. This can't be normal for a healthy young male.

Have any of you guys experienced something similar? I'd be curious to hear about how alcohol affects you guys physically - the alcohol lobbies seem to suppress that info pretty well. Thanks and cheers.

Might this be an acute attack of gout? If your body's in good condition, imbibing 5 tall boys full of trash it isn't adapted to means it has to deal with 5 tall boys worth of trash.

Low tolerance/time away from alcohol means that your body reacts more severely to it when you have it again. It might be a good time to quit it altogether.

Smoking cigarettes is the same way

Joint creaking at your age is obviously not normal, not matter how much you drink.

You most likely have a severe diet imbalance for whatever reason: either you are not eating enough of X or by eating Y you are blocking the absorption of Z...

RE: Drinking and Joint Aches
I get this with certain craft beers. I'm not sure if its a gluten or wheat intolerance. I also get it if I eat a lot of white bread.

Hurts in my fingers and knees.

If I do consume I take ibroprofen and it takes the edge off.

The logical thing to do is stop consuming it though

RE: Drinking and Joint Aches
The above replies strike me as a bit alarmist. You're 22 -- 5 tall cans even 5 days a week shouldn't effect you much (not that I recommend you do that). This is probably just a more severe hangover than you're used to getting. I first drank at the age of 15, and probably did not experience a real hangover of any kind until about the age of 20. Early twenties is when I believe most people start to get the experience of a true hangover from time to time. By your 30s they can become quite brutal, not to mention much more frequent to the point of unavoidably.

If you're still feeling off, say, two days later and you haven't drank at all in those two days I'd be concerned, but its probably nothing.

RE: Drinking and Joint Aches




Alcohol withdraws nutrients out of our bodies, but whether that alone is responsible for your aching joints is another matter.

However you should do something about it. High-dosage supplements on top of high-potency multivitamins for a few weeks will do the job to give your body enough nutrients to make those aches disappear.

Since you are having those issues now, then you might consider taking those supplements less regularly, but all the time. Otherwise you face some surgery in your 40s.

And those things work - that is why I linked the interview with a NBA star who was healed by those supplements. Many doctors know it and vets do it all the time to treat horses - especially running horses. Nevermind the Alex Jones association - those supplements are nothing new and you can pick ones produces by Swanson or Now foods just as well.

RE: Drinking and Joint Aches
Do you get the same issues when drinking other types of alcohol (spirits / wine / etc).

Whenever I consume too much sugar it kicks off joint pain, and flares up my sciatica. Possibly some kind of auto immune issue.

RE: Drinking and Joint Aches
Thanks for the replies guys. It went away the next day, but I'm rather wary about drinking to excess in the future (especially beer.) Alcohol seems to be more poisonous than it is beneficial - just wish social interactions revolved around it less. Kinda isolating when you don't drink regularly.

True. Going against the grain is isolating in general. Sure you know about that with your carnivore/keto experiences. The best bet would be to stick to liquor and dry ciders when you can. Much less toxins than beer, even the low cal ones.

edit: dry wines are cool too.

African-Americans were horrified that the history of their ancestors was being, quite literally, whitewashed.

Beer and most liquors are not of the same quality as in the 1970s.

Try very pure craft beer, high quality German beer - you will feel better for it.

Otherwise good scotch is an option or wine. Though good wine will cost you more than good beer. Even quality scotch isn't that expensive if it's not taxed enormously in that country (aka Norway).

I am very sensitive to alcohol - gotten sometimes sick for 3 days after drinking one low quality beer.

The best buzz I got was from quality German beer or high-quality scotch. Never had a hangover from either even after drinking enough to be called drunk.

What beer were you drinking? I never had this type of joint pain you describe. The german women keep getting fatter, but luckily the beer here is still amazing!
