Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy?

Welcome @parkerjean, I see you recently joined Connect and have posted about an aneurism next to a valve which makes surgery a risk and that you also are dealing with chronic kidney disease along with your peripheral neuropathy and other health conditions. I can't begin to imagine how hard it is for you to manage daily routines. After I was diagnosed with small fiber PN and started learning more about my condition, alcohol is one of the first things I gave up after reading that it can make neuropathy worse. I'm wondering if the heat depends on what type of neuropathy you have and what is affected.

Did your doctor tell you specifically why the heat and alcohol were your two worse enemies?

Yes It seems that not only Heat & alcohol but any depressant significantly lowers my blood pressure to the point of staggering gait and syncope episodes. No Fun. I have fallen my times (thankfully no serious injuries) my orthostatic pressure problems are really a problem.
