I’m looking for information on some of the mechanisms involved in alcohol-related neuropathy.
Long term and excessive alcohol consumption may cause nerve damage and malnutrition, which can result to alcoholic neuropathy. Excessive drinking can hinder processing, transportation, and nutrients absorption. Victims may also develop deficiencies for most vitamins and folate due to improper food intake. Consequently, the nerves start malfunctioning and the general health is ruined.
I’d specifically like to know whether the condition carries a risk of limb amputation?
- Paresthesia; needlelike sensations
- Weak extremities
- Heat intolerance, more so post workout
- Swallowing and talking difficulty
- Numbness in the extremities
I’d also like to know which symptoms one may expect, and when these are likely to emerge?
If you drink too much, pain may occur in the limbs. This influences your movement because of frequent tingling sensations in your legs and arms.
