Sore shoulder blades, discomfort, burning sensation on drinking alcohol. Treatment for condition?

My shoulder blades become extremely sore and uncomfortable after consuming alcohol. I am not a regular drinker, rarely even a social drinker however, when I occasionally do partake in a spirit or two (and that is usually my limit), my shoulder blades feel as if they ve run a marathon and feel like they are on fire. Please help!

Thanks for writing to us.
The symptoms you have described are likely to be due to neuropathy after chronic alcohol consumption. Mild electrolyte imbalance and dehydration also results in such symptoms. You can start taking few supplements and see if the symptoms improve.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
