Severe jaw pain, thigh pain above knees after drinking alcohol or anything acidic. Causes?

Hi Im 26 years of age and have recently discovered that after consuming only two beers. I would awake the next morning with severe/unbearable jaw pain also pain in my thighs just above my knees. I have had a history of joint pains from eating or drinking anything acidic. However the jaw pain is new and I would really like some help in understanding why this is now happening.

I have studied your case,
In gout there is accumulation of uric acid crystals in joint mainly foot and knee.
I will advise to do blood inv like complete blood count ,uric acid level, X ray knee.

If uric acid is raised and gout is confirmed you need to take medication and diet restriction.
Till time take analgesic and neurotropic like methylcobalamine.
For gout you may need medicine like zyloric and, allopurinol you can start then according to blood uric acid level consulting his treating doctor.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.

Take care.
