442 days sober. I have had some neuropathy symptoms lately probably due to stress (I am leading a construction), still it is managable. Also had no chance to sleep 8 hours every day, but I found that a stable sexlife helps too, which now I am lucky to have after a long period of abstinence. I am still fighting it. I discovered that the same level of stress or sugar gives me less symptoms as time passes. I take that as improvement. Still neuropathy is a good indicator I might slow down and eat well and not to drink again.

4230 days sober!

Feeling good, walked about 2 miles today in the mountains and spent too much money at the Belk

Trees are starting to bud and it's warm...I love living this far south!

So some questions as I realize still being within two years of last drinking is still fairly early in any recovery process, but I have a couple questions for some of you more veteran members.

First, does anyone else have some GI issues when their neuropathy flares up? I have noticed in times I feel the worst, I am also in the bathroom more.

Also, has anyone else gone from stretches of what you might call mostly mild flaring to much more significant? Again, I am probably in that year and a half range of things, and this has been a very surprising uptick considering I hadnít had much flaring, and certainly of any significant note, recently.

Again itís awesome to see those who continue to grow that days since number, and mine is well beyond the one year mark, too!

In my case all my GI issues went away as the alcohol dried up and I started to eat "normal" again.

Now I can't even do fast food (except Chik-Fil-A) and we eat a lot of meats and salads now

I donít necessarily eat the best, but itís consistent, and still much more good than not.

Itís just crazy how like clockwork, almost anytime my pain levels really go up, this happens with it.

I did not even consider connecting my GI issues to neuropathy. I had them before. Now I presume it was more caused by the sheer cunsumption of alchohol instead of the sickness itself. Since I stopped drinking my lactointolerance got much better. I still have GI issues, but much less severe. I cannot connect them to neuropathy, though. I don't see the pattern. I usually eat a balanced diet, no junk food, no soft drinks, no added sugar, fruits, veggies. I always did, with the notable exception of my past bindge drinking sessions. God, leaving drinking behind was the best thing I did in my life. Yesterday I rode 67 kms on my bike. 1 and a half year ago, I had neural pain, weakness in my legs, could walk, but lost force sometimes.

I wish everyone a symptom free life as much as possible!

Yeah, I have noticed almost whenever I have higher pain levels, that seems to go hand in hand.

That said, I do have an extra variable in the equation. I reacted badly to an antiobiotic that has now been shown to cause neuropathy. I was finding a couple years ago that when I drank, no matter the amount, I had pain. So two years ago mid July, I stopped. Pain levels have mostly been good since, but do still have times, like now, where itís not much fun. Usually fairly short flares, although I found last summer, covid is something that also doesnít play well with neuropathy. As a teacher, around tons of germ carriers, I have wondered if I maybe had a mild case that just seemed like my allergies, but is gifting more neuropathy now.

That is my double, and occasional triple, whammy now.

I apologize for the vent, but itís amazing how crazy neuropathy is.

Itís wild how out of the blue your entire body can just feel a bomb went off in it, and without any real warning., either.
