4-5 weeks earlier I visited the physician after experiencing via pains in both my shoulders after having actually an alcoholic drink. This has actually been going on for several months now and also is really difficult to define. It"s like a substantial weight is on them, it often tends to last about 20-30 minutes and then it"s fine and also I can continue to drink with no worries, yet is considerable sufficient to put me off drinking altogether. Somepoint that I incredibly hardly ever execute anyway. Perhaps when a month. I was sent out for an x-ray of my chest and bloods which all came back normal and have likewise had an ultrasound that appears fine. They are saying they"re not encouraged its lymphoma. Which isn"t extremely reassuring. I am struggling to find an different factor for such pain anywhere

I have actually this EXACT same difficulty. I"ll be in no pain, and then as soon as I have actually even the slightest little of alcohol, my shoulders and neck feel as though someone is pushing down difficult on them, it really hurts. Then after a little while, approximately 15/20 minutes the pain goes and I deserve to carry on drinking via no worry. I"ve never before been to a doctor around it. Have you had actually any kind of luck or any type of principle as to what may be the cause now?
