Nope, I don't drop things. I hope it's not Parkinson's, but it's certainly possible for younger folks and is called early onset parkinson's. I'm probably susceptible to it since it runs in my family.
Drinking exacerbates these symptoms like four-fold the day after. The slightest bend of my arm or leg will cause pins and needles very quickly and rather strongly. Bend it straight out and boom it's gone. So it must be a circulation thing. I thought it was more related to vitamin B-12 depletion after drinking. In any case, this goes away a day or two after. How does this present for you? Literally no one I know gets this and it's perplexing because my friends drink much more than me and much more often.
Now I just have this chronic easily-induced pins and needles thing that's developed over the past two weeks or so. I have a doctor's appointment booked tomorrow. We'll see what he says.
