Back spasms

Hello my name is Abigail. I have only been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease recently. I have been off steroids for two weeks now and have finally gone back to work (work in a office) I am now experiencing back spasms which I have read could be due to inflammation.. this may be a silly question but I am wondering can I drink alcohol tonight? Or would it be sensible to not?? Because everything else is absolutely fine, I feel great! Just the back spasms randomly.

If you are having spasms, it isn't really a good idea to drink booze. It generally isn't recommended for anyone suffering GI issues either. The spasms can become worse due to electrolyte imbalance or mineral deficiency with regular use for sure. I get back spasms sometimes and I have to abstain or they can get worse. Your doctor will be able to give you the best advice though.
