Alcoholic Neuropathy is caused primarily by chronic alcoholism. Nutritional problems linked to alcohol use can also cause nerve damage. Symptoms of alcoholic neuropathy, like those of many of the other axonal mixed polyneuropathies, manifest initially in the distal lower extremities. Sensory symptoms (eg, numbness, dysesthesias, paresthesias, allodynia, and loss of vibration and position sense) generally manifest prior to motor symptoms (eg, weakness). However, patients may present with both motor and sensory symptoms at initial presentation. The exact cause of alcoholic neuropathy is not known. It includes direct poisoning of the nerve by the alcohol or may be the effect of poor nutrition associated with alcoholism.
