Tingling and Cramps after consuming alcohol(4 Posts)
Hi everyone. It seems that lately, every time I have an alcoholic beverage I get cramps in my feet and weird tinging sensations in other parts of my body like my forearms, hands, neck and the sides of my waist. Does anyone else get this. I used to think I was imagining the painful cramps but I was pretty smashed those times so I think they were real. Anyway, I've just had three beers and my feet and body are tingling again. It feels uncomfortable. Can someone please tell me what this could be?
Do you have a drink problem op? Alcoholic neuropathy can cause tingling - it's a type of nerve damage.
Well, for a start I'd stop drinking alcohol!
Does this ever occur at other times?
How much alcohol do you drink?
Do your glands ever hurt when drinking alcohol?
I think it is something to see your GP about as well as abstaining whilst it is being investigated
Merry Christmas everyone, thanks for your replies.
I think I do have a drink problem - I have a really anxious and stressed type of personality and I've been taking anti-depressants for several years now.
I've seen a thread called Dry 16 on relationships so I might pop over and ask posters there if they have experienced this. Thanks again.
