One of the more substantial costs of abusing alcohol for 15 years.
In an odd twist, I've started regaining lost feeling in my feet. At first I thought I was imagining it, but it's really happening. Hope it continues, that would be great. I'm 109 days sober btw. So yeah, chalk up another win for the sober life!

I have Raynaud's in my hands, and experienced some tinglin while towards the end of my drinking days. It scared me absolutely to pieces. I attributed it to the condition I already had being made worse by alcohol, but that was never cleared by a doctor.

I'm just now clearing two months of sobriety, and while I don't have issues with my hands, I do feel tingling in my tongue which has led so some funky word adaptations when speaking, and I've had constant subtle shakes for over a week now. Tongue seems to get better, off and on, whereas initially it was always tingly.
