Alcohol has definitely made the nerves in my feet flair. I like the theory Norb puts forth about myelin stripped nerves. The days they flared was when I went over the line. Some days I forgot my meds, etc. Alcohol is like throwing gas on the fire. People do not understand parethesia. I tell them it’s like when your foot fell asleep at the movies. Except we have it 24/7. My feet (both drop foot)are humming all the time.Numbness and tingling. Nprb is on the right track. Cause and effect.; I drink too much and the feet flair. High pitch pain as opposed to low pitch numbness.
