I have mild tingling on my right cheek the day after drinking alcohol. Worried it's peripheral neuropathy or TIA. Or it could be panic attack.
Doubtful. although alcohol can cause a peripheral neuropathy usually one does not drink it and have the symptoms the next day. It is usually a long term effect of many drinks - not just one. And you should see a neurologist if you are concerned about this. It could be a TIA. It could be RIND. It could even be a small stroke. Do you have any weakness or vision problems? see a doctor if you are.
I take 450mg lyrica (pregabalin) 4 my peripheral neuropathy. Also diagnosed w/high anxiety & take prn xanax. Anything else can take cuz pain causes panic attacks?
It's hard to say. Without knowing more of your history, it is difficult to recommend any specific treatments. I try and avoid using xanax (alprazolam) in my patients with panic, i think it can make them worse, especially in the long run. For my patients with symptoms as you describe, I have been successful with many using a medication called nortripyline, which can prevent panic attacks as well as help with pain. Good luck.
