A diagnosis of alcoholic neuropathy means that there has been some sort of damage to the nerves of your feet due to the excessive amount of alcohol that has been consumed throughout your lifetimes. While the exact cause of such neuropathy is not known, it is very likely that it has to do with a direct poisoning that the alcohol can do to the nerves mixed with poor nutrition. No matter what, you need to be able to find the best possible alcoholic neuropathy treatment in Edmonds so that you can enjoy some relief. This is where our team of professionals at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic can come in with our vast amount of experience.
Some of the symptoms that a patient with alcoholic neuropathy will often have include:
- Muscle issues to include cramping, weakness, spasms or aching
- Erection problems in men
- Numbness and tingling in the arms and/or legs
- Pins and needles in the arms and/or legs
- Intolerance to heat, which is worse after exercising
- Diarrhea or constipation
- Vomiting or nausea
- Sharp pains in the ares where the numbness occurs
Some of the patients who have alcoholic neuropathy will also have variances in their muscle strength that can be more common in their legs rather than the arms. Symptoms will usually start to develop on a gradual basis and then get worse over time. Unfortunately, any damage that is caused to the nerves from alcoholism is not reversible and a course of treatment will focus more on comfortable living and learning how to prevent injuries moving forward.
