Dear Fairmile
Alcohol IS actually a poison you know! You may have a rare genetic condition called eosinophilia-myalgia syndrome where the ingestion of alcohol causes an increase in a chemical called 1-Methyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro--carboline-3-carboxylic acid (MTCA), causing muscle pain.

The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition. You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical exmanication, diagnosis and formal advice.

I have had a similar response from drinking beer - especially the more 'naturally' brewed ones with lots of yeast. feels like i have been run over by a steam roller. just try and drink lots of water - sometimes drinking Efersol or Citrosoda helps.
