Thread: Does drinking alcohol make neuropathic pain better or worse?

  1. #11
    Hi everyone for the most part the majority seems to weigh towards yes

    darrel you made a great point one of my friends has serious spine problems and he often drinks a good 6 pack daily to help him and he feels some form of relief . He says it makes life manageable .

    I couldnt drink a 6 pack but like I said sometimes a ice cold one takes off the edge

    99% time I drink Water / Gatorade

    from my perspective I live at 9-10 most of the time anyway, scream in my sleep and wake up the house every night so it can't get much worse.

    I start drinking scotch or bourbon or... about 4PM til i sleep/passout for a bit or get to tired or drunk to get out of bed for a refill.

    The alcohol hangover is easier than the drug hangovers.

    Doc says the alcohol isn't much worse and possibly easier on the system than the drug cocktail I was on. So I drink.

    I truly do not believe alcohol increases my CP or other pain

    We have beer:30 on a rough day. It does take the edge off pain. But I don't even drink a full beer usually. My husband got some Templeton Rye for Xmas. That's like drinking "moonshine." The more liquids I drink, (water) the less spasticity I seem to have the next day.

    Not a sustainable thing day after day after day , as we all know.

    Still when things get tough its better than Vidodin and less harmful overall.
    Grey Goose works for me, but the side effects are too pronounced.

    it seemingly makes it better, and then you wake up the next morning with your brain floating around in the haze of $3 kamikaze specials from your night the local gay bar. why oh why did
    they ever think anything made with 'well' vodka deserved to be called 'special'?

    and the hangover makes it worse.
