Peripheral neuropathy

Besides its effect on the central nervous system, alcohol also damages motor, sensory, and autonomic nerves that control muscles and internal organs. Symptoms are weakness, numbness, pain, and a prickly feeling or burning of the skin, especially the feet. Usually on neurological examination, the tendon reflexes are diminished or have completely disappeared and skin sensibility is reduced, especially in the feet and in the lower limbs. When patients abstain from alcohol, the progression of the symptoms can be stopped and even partial recovery is possible.
