Brief Answer:
It is a progressive and slow process.

Detailed Answer:
Dear,
The problems you are writing about are peripheral neuropathy, which means disease of the nerves on your hands and feet, head and thighs.

This is a slow process. First of all, there's lose of sensory nerves at various places of the body.

Generally, pain isn't felt if the leg is in a bad position of low blood circulation. You can thus get wounds, but be unable to heal them or to stop them from reappearing. This wounds may get infected and spread the disease in your body. Exactly like someone suffering from diabetes. Because with peripheral neuropathy, even your ability to heal is diminished. This is the slow way that peripheral neuropathy can lead to cell death. Multiple wounds that are unable to heal.

Thus I would recommend you to cut down your wine consumption.

Hope I have answered your question. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.

Wish you good health!

Don't know if you have info from old questions?
I am on Warfarin due to A fib.
So Ulcers would be a major problem but my main concern is control of my limbs. I use a cane now to aid in stability, I walk with a wide stance. My brain does not communicate with my limbs too well. What comes next?

You might want to forward this to a Neurologist.
