      Peripheral Neuropathy

      Hi, I have a question:
      Do any of you suffer from Peripheral Neuropathy, alcohol induced or otherwise. Would love to hear from you.

      Peripheral Neuropathy

      Do you mean in your feet Lori? I think there were a couple of people who mentioned that they had feet issues after a lot of drinking; cold, numbness and tingling.

      Peripheral Neuropathy

      New,
      it is damage to the tiny nerve endings sitting under your skin, all over your body. The more advanced it gets the more nerves are damaged. It is very common in alcoholics, but also occurs in patients with diabetes.
      It feels as if you were living in an anthill on a permanent basis. It's horrid.

      Peripheral Neuropathy

      New,
      hands and feet are usually the first sign of trouble. As it progresses it will affect all surfaces of your body.

      Peripheral Neuropathy

      Yes, I have twitches all over my body but I think I notice them more because I am sitting at my computer all day long. They are not unbearable but I do wonder if it is alcohol-related. I believe it could be. Do you have it Lori? and has it gotten better since you have been AF?

      Peripheral Neuropathy

      Lush and New,
      yes, I have them and no it has not gotten better over the last 16 days. Given the fact that I drank for 20 years, I should give my poor body a little slack and not expect it to go away in a forthnight.
      Actually, there is no known treatment. I am just hoping that I'm made of Iron wood and the dang little nervies are gonna fix themself over time. It's just another reason why I cannot ever drink again.

      Peripheral Neuropathy

      I find when i am feeling nervous or edgy, my feet or hands might start feeling numb/like they wont work properly - is this that? Or is that part of a panic attack? Lusch I get the twitchy thing too. I just figured that was from drinking too much the day before or the weekend before or something.

      Peripheral Neuropathy

      Hi Lori,

      My former father-in-law has peripheral neuropathy, and physical therapy can help as well as getting exercise. Have you looked into any herbal or natural remedies that could at least help alleviate some of the symptoms? (I don't know if there are any, but maybe something can help a bit...) Good luck, Lori.

      Hugs,

      Kathy:l
