    Increased nerve pain from alcohol

    I wanted to see if anyone had the following problem. I have extensive nerve damage in my neck. This causes me daily headaches and nausea. It has been about the same for the last 5 years. I take Gabapentin (2400mg/day) which helps but doesn't resolve it. I have always drank alcohol, which actually gave me some relief while I was drinking. About 1 year ago, I started having strange issues. My neck would get really hot towards the end of the night before bed. About 8/10 times I would drink, I would really feel poorly for several days to a week. Even if I had 1 or 2 drinks. Has anyone experienced this and have you found a solution? I currently barely drink and I am resigned to giving up drinking forever.

    Sorry, I have no help that would offer relief but alcohol and meds... really not a good mix so kudos on wanting to quit. I just learned recently that Neurontin has some adverse reactions on the nerves so I stopped taking mine, besides, it never touched my headaches. I wish I could offer you more assistance. I hope offering prayers is okay?

    Redsmom, I appreciate the response. It is just odd that this started occurring. I tend to get some help from Gabapentin but it doesn't resolve my headaches either. Thank you for your prayers. I pray that you are able to resolve or at least improve your issue too. Thanks.
