In brief: It may mean that

you are developing alcohol-induced nerve damage or neuropathy, which can become permanent if the nerves continue to be damaged.
I would see your doctor immediately for evaluation. This is usually associated with alcoholic levels of drinking, and you will almost certainly need professional help to stop drinking safely. Please get help - talk to your doctor or a mental health professional.
