Nerve injury: Humming and leg buzzing suggests damage to peripheral nerves, likely from the alcohol,consumption and dietary lack. Discuss other vitamins/mineral supplements and dietary needs with your doc as well as other ways to control these symptoms while your body heals. The auditory noises may be tinnitus which may or may may not have been caused by the alcohol, but still requires treatment
