    Alcohol and incomplete injury?

    Am I crazy? or do my muscles for which I have less than normal innervation....not work well after a drink or two?

    Crazy?
    Bat-shit crazy maybe.
    Alcohol alters your perception of everything.

      Alcohol, like Baclofen, but much more enjoyable.

        Is this the first time you’ve discovered this phenomenon?
        alcohol is a depressant with respect to muscles and central nervous system

          Alcohol is frustrating for me. When I have a drink or three I get some neuropathy relief from the central nervous system suppression part, but it also shuts down my kidneys or at least slows them down such that my normal 4.5 hours between ICs can go to 6 easily. But the real joy comes the next morning when I wake up to razor-blade paresthesia.

            Don't want to sound like I'm giving a sermon, but it sounds like your body is telling you to cut back.

                  I'm sorry PBR, but your initials are just too perfect for this thread

                    Anyone who has been on this forum long enough knows my feelings about acronyms. To "funklab's" rollicking post about the Spinal Cord Injury Nurse's initials, they could stand for Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer (who drinks that stuff??? really???) or if you search the internet for the initials "pbr," the first hit you get is "Professional Bull Riders". You just don't know what is in someone's head....do you?

                      Though I am incomplete I rely on spaz to walk. If I go on central alpha blockers and intrathecal Baclofen for detrusor sphincter dyssynergia I may no longer be able to walk. I know alcohol works because it makes me fall or use the chair.

                        So is that bad for a person when alcohol slows the kidneys down when having 4-8 beers? I noticed that also after my Sci injury! but after laying down after having a few I need to empty my bladder is that normal? I dont recall before my injury
