Medical Offices of Manhattan’s Internist, Daniel Kim, DO, speaks to Yahoo! Lifestyle about Why Your Muscles Are Weirdly Sore After One Too Many Drinks
This can happen due to multiple factors including dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, the body’s breakdown of alcohol into toxic metabolites and overall increased inflammation in the body.
It usually depends on the person and their ability to metabolize alcohol and it’s toxic byproducts.
Dr. Kim was quoted saying, in the article:
“This can be a common hangover symptom especially if you are not drinking enough water along with the alcohol”
Make sure to replenish all the lost fluids from excessive alcohol intake. Stay up on drinking water throughout the day and get plenty of rest. Only time can cure a painful hangover.
