Hi,

Welcome to Health care magic.

Consuming heavy amount alcohol can cause numbness and waking up in the morning with alcohol withdrawal causes Hangover showing symptoms like disorientation, numbness, dry throat. This is a temporary neuropathy but excessive and prolonged consumption may lead to conditions worse than neuropathy like Hyertension, Cholesterol, Hepatic carcinoma, Malnutrition, Renal carncinoma, Throat cancer, Lung cancer.

I would advice you as follows,
1) Avoid consumption of alcohol.
2) To consume food compulsorily after consumption of alcohol.

Wish you a good health.

Regards.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1997, had a mastectomy with no lymph node involvement. I had a recurrence in the chest wall in 1998 treated with surgery, radiation and tamoxifen. I have moved through Arimidexdex, FAC Chemotherapy, Aromasin, 6 cycles of Dosa Taxol plus Herceptin, Letrozole, and two years of Avastin and Xelodal. Since August, I have had weight loss, a persistent cough (with sputum, and light-headedness with one fainting spell. An October, 2010 Pet scan showed some cancer activity in a nodule in the lung and in the sternum. I have been on a drug holiday since November 2010, as my doctor tries to get results from a pulmonary function test. I have a colonoscopy scheduled for October 2011. My cough is getting worse, and yesterday I developed a pain in my mid rib-cage every time I cough.

Short term question: Is there some kind of cough suppression medicine I could take to prevent the pain of coughing?

Long term question:: Should I go somewhere like the Mayo Clinic to get an opinion my situation?

At the moment, my pulse rate is 48 and I am lightheaded. I take a beta blocker ( Nadolol ). My dosage had recently been increased, but it had become regulated. Should I be concerned right now or just wait to see if the lightheadedness subsides?
