Having constant pain in the left elbow to my wrist. Consumed 3-4 glasses of wine for 3 nights continuously. Cause and treatment?

I am not a big drinker by any means but over the last three nights I've had three to four glasses of white bubblie wine, I'm not drunk from the consumption but I wake up through the middle of the night and my left elbow to my wrist is aching quite badly, hurting enough to wake me from my sleep and to stay awake in pain.

Thanks for using healthcare magic.

I have gone through your history.

Your pain might be due to
- Alcohol induced neuropathic pain
- Due to some injury you might have not aware of.
- Vitamin B12 deficiency

You should consult your doctor , preferably orthopedic surgeon to evaluate and manage. Doctor may advise to go for radiological investigation to rule out local injury.

Treatment would be directed as per cause.

Meanwhile you can take non steroidal anti inflammatory agents like ibuprofen or naproxen sodium for pain relief.
