alcohol related neuropathy
I have drank alcohol everyday for about 5 years. About a year ago I started getting numbness, tingling and pin prick sensation in both feet. It moved into my legs and I had a feeling of wearing stockings and my balance is affecting my ability to walk. My fingertips have slight numbness. I stopped drinking 11 days ago. On the 3rd or 4th day I noticed better sensation in my feet. My legs are better and my balance is slightly better. The problem is my feet and ankles are swelling extremly bad. I have tried elevating them but that doesn't help. I take Prilosec OTC, Vitamin C 500mg twice daily, Bupropien 100mg twice daily, Folic Acid 1mg, Gabapentin 300mg 3 times daily, B12 1mg weekly, Fish oil 1200 mg twice daily and a multivitamin for women once daily. Also, I am 40 years old and just started the above medicine again when I stopped drinking. Could any or all of the meds be causing the swelling?
