Why do my arms and upper back pain after drinking soda ?

Hi. For at least a few years I ve experienced pain in my upper arms (one or the other, only recently both arms spreading to upper back and chest down my ribs) after drinking soda. And more recently after drinking juice, too. It feels like the pained muscles have been wrung of all liquid, like I ve somehow become jerky in certain regions! Used to be it didn t happen often but recently it s been most everytime, even a few sips trigger the dry pain. Is this something I should worry about it? Do you know what it is?

Thanks for the query.It is highly unlkely that drinking juice or soda will cause upper arm pain. Are you sure it is not gastritis? Try taking Tab pan 40 every morning for 1 week and see if it helps. Get your electrolytes tested to see if ur pottasium is deficient. Have a healthy living.
