numbness after drinking alcohol
« on: December 20, 2008, 07:17:24 PM »
Hey everyone

I have noticed that after I have a night of drinking booze (I dont do it much anymore), I tend to get numbness in my face and foot.  I only happens for about a day, then it goes away.   Anyone else notice this?  I told my doctor and he said "dont drink then".   I was just curious if anyone else experienced this fun aftereffect.

well i kicked back about 10 last night and noticed around number 4 that my shit was getting cold (my leg).

when i drink or smoke cigarettes my body feels different these days. before i'd just be toxic the next day. now the toxicity is accompanied by a tingling, usually in my hands & feet the next day or later in the evening. i haven't cut back at all but my thoughts of cutting back have increased dramatically : )

poor me another...

I have noticed the same thing. My feet and hands arms and legs get numb. It has caused me to quit drinking, I keep thinking that I can have a couple. Why not, but then I end up paying for it.

I've had this happen to me but it's usually heavy drinking, like a wedding.  The doctor said it was due to a vitamin B depletion.  I took 2 mg of ativan and the feeling went away.

I would say it could be because booze numbs the nervous system, but I would definitely check with a doctor, to be sure something else isn't going on.
