IS IT NEUROPATHY
Fours ago I started feeling somewhat unbalanced. Seeing as I have had a few episodes of VPBP I thought it was another one of those. But this one had a peculiarly different feeling. I saw my doctor and he tested me for balance. The sole of my feet were not responding as they should have. Knowing that I was a drinker he said it was probably caused by alcohol and suggested I stop drinking which I didn’t.
Three years later I had an AFib situation and was rushed to ER. When I was released the cardiologist told me bluntly to stop drinking, and I did. It’s been three years now.
Stopping drinking I thought this loosing balance thing would go away. It didn’t and got worse over time. I don’t have any pain at all except for a light burning sensation. I need to use a mobility scooter or a walker when going out. Most days are bearable but some days are really bad.
I’m still waiting for an appointment with the neurologist.
I’m just wondering if this is alcoholic or idiopathic neuropathy, or something else.
