weird sensations after drinking alcohol
« on: September 02, 2007, 10:51:33 PM »
Hi

I have noticed lately that after a night of going out and boozing it up, my right side of my body feels a bit numb.   Mostly my face, hand, and foot.  My right sinus is also clogged and hurts.  No meds yet.

Does anyone else get this?

I've had something similar, but it was allover not just one side.  Maybe you have a sinus infection on one side?

did you eat the worm?   ;D

No - it has happened a few times and then goes away.

I too experience what you describe. The difference is that ive been on meds for around 10 years now and drink most alll liquors, beer and wine once a week.
I get that numb feeling over my whole body and also get some killer leg cramps that are very painful. I never have this numb feeling or leg cramps at any other time so im assuming it has something to do with the virus being in our systems.
Will ask my doc or one of the nurses during my next visit. One of the office girls is poz and is quite the partier, perhaps she would have some info on what causes it.

I have never stopped to really think of it but it seems to be wine only that causes this?  Maybe the sugar intake is too high for my body to handle?

Peter...
I bet you are right it has something to do with sugar content....(or one of the many chemicals in wine that you dont find elsewhere)  but I do know that my partner Kurt has fevers if he drinks an alchoholic beverage...and the same or similar reaction if he eats a large piece of cake or dessert.....so it sure is possible to have some reaction.

You can always experiment.

I notice Peter is not on meds, but I'll still chip in that at various times in my diagnosis the sulfites found in wine have made me feel odd at times.  It has varied over the years so I assume it's been dependent on whatever HAART regimen I was on at the time.  Still, Peter could be reacting to these sulfites as a simple allergic reaction.

However, a quick google about wine and sulfites show that while many get these reactions they have yet to prove what it is in wine that it's connected to.

Pete,

My understanding is that sulfites, which are commonly used as a preservative in wine and many other foods, can cause symptoms similar to asthma and/or migraines for some individuals.  Your symptoms don't sound exactly like asthma, and I'm not too familiar with migraine headaches, although I do understand they can cause nausea as well as sensitivity to light and sounds.

I've certainly had more than my fair share of experiences over-indulging with alcohol, and I've never had symptoms like you're reporting.  I'd suggest you ask your doctor about this the next time you see her or him.  Of course, the first thing your doctor will probably tell you is to stop drinking so much.  That's generally sound advice.  Nonetheless, your doctor should also try to make the connection between your symptoms and alcohol consumptoin.  You may have to press your doc to investigate a bit more.

Regards,

Henry

I notice it happens more when I drink house wines and such.  They tend to be cheaper so I assume it is more quality of wine.

It kind of sounds like a circulation problem.  But I don't know, because I'm not the wine expert.

Thank goodness we've now narrowed this down to it being a simple issue of cheap booze.
