Alcohol is a vasodilator and will cause excess edema to the feet especially after truama.

I am not sure that how the foot area has Brachial Plexus. Brachial Plexus originates from the Cervical and Thoracic Vertebrae and is located in the Axillary area. How the swelling in the foot and history of fracture of right foot 6 years ago is linked to the innervation of of upper extremity.
