Rule on drink Khamr for relieve pains

Question:

Is it permissible for a believer to drink Khamr claiming that it relieves some of their pains?

Answer:

Khamr is Haram (prohibited). It is impermissible to be used as a treatment. A proof for the foregoing is the Hadith in which the Prophet (peace be upon him) says, “O Allah’s servants! Seek treatment, but use nothing unlawful for there is no disease that Allah has created, except that He has also created its treatment.1
