Sudden onset tingling and pins and needles after drinking alcohol. Liver and kidney labwork is normal. NCV and EMG normal. Brain MRI norml. Cause?
Alcohol. Alcohol alters nerve conduction by occupying the GABA receptor in the brain. Tingling can sometimes occur. If it is on both sides, that is the likely cause. If you want to avoid it in the future, avoid alcohol. If you develop weakness of arm or leg on one side, slurred speech, or other concerning symptoms, go to the ER. Hope this helps!
