Does alcohol have medicinal properties?!

Question: Does alcohol have medicinal properties!?
I took a bad fall yesterday and bruished my hip and shoulder!. I was very sore!. So when I got home, I drank a couple of glasses of Scotch!. There was an anesthetic effect!. Then I went to bed; when I got up this morning, 50 or 60 percent of the soreness was gone!.
What's up with that!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Yep, the idea is to chill out, numb out, for awhile you just don't care if you hurt or not!. Then you go to sleep and relax the injury, and you wake up and it doesn't hurt near so much!. Anesthesia by alcohol is not a new concept, it has been used for such probably since it was first discovered by some cave man that when he put grapes in a wooden bucket they fermented and tasted go-od!. !.
Same thing when you use booze for a cough and cold, first you are drunk and don't care that you are miserable, and then you go to sleep and rest!. You are not fussing around, wiping your nose or whining that you have a cold!. You are hydrated, and the next day you feel better!. Why do you think the big drug companies put alcohol in cold remedies!? It works!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Alcohol has medicinal properties!. It is a Component of many cough remedies and has been used an an antiseptic and pain relief agent!. May I also suggest some ice to the injured areas and perhaps some over the counter anti inflammatory medications!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

maybe you didn't hurt yourself as bad as you thought!. i would say yes to the anesthetic effect!. red wine is supposed to be good for your arteries!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

Alcohol will relax your muscles, and it has always been believed to have medicinal properties!. Hence, called "spirits"Www@FoodAQ@Com

keep on drinking that scotch!. soon you will feel nothingWww@FoodAQ@Com
