In brief: Alcohol neuropathy

High amounts of alcohol are toxic; by binge drinking you are poisoning yourself- it can even be fatal.
Usually this occurs in the arms and legs but can happen in the cheeks. B vitamins can help but may not totally protect you. Binge drinking can cause permanent brain damage, liver disease, increased cancer risk etc. Your body is giving you a very clear message to stop- if you can't, seek help!
