Why does alcohol make my leg muscles hurt almost immediately after one drink?

Sometimes alcohol causes leg cramps. I don't know the physiology of this, to be honest.

You are allergic to alcohol and shouldn't drink.

There are two reasons for this. First, alcohol causes lactic acid—the same buildup in the muscles you experience after intense exercise—to accumulate in the body, which can cause muscle spasms and soreness. Second, heavy alcohol consumption has a dehydrating effect.
