Wanting to see if anyone has experienced what I am. After increased binge drinking I started to feel tingling and numbness in my feet. This has spread up my legs and now my groin...basically it's that numb feeling of sitting in a bike seat except it doesn't go away. My bowels and sexual function are affected. Went for an initial visit to the doc and got blood drawn, all is normal: liver, kidneys, vitamin B, all markers are good. Next step is neuro tests to see if this is peripheral or central. My question is whether anyone has had similar and did it resolve with abstinence from drinking?
I'm a 46 year old male in good shape and health, until now. Always been a moderate to heavy drinker socially, this escalated when I got divorced three years ago. Went to heavy and binging with companions and alone. Never had any real negative effect; promoted several times at work, health always fine, no dui, just drank because it eased the boredom when I was alone. Never felt addicted, when these symptoms increased I just stopped drinking with no problem. I'm scared that I crossed the line and permanently damaged myself. Any advice or experiences shared are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
