I have trouble with alcohol because it usually will set off a migraine. However, as far as the MS symptoms go, it makes my already poor balance problems ten times worse.
That being said, I still will enjoy a glass of wine or an alcoholic drink from time to time, when I don't care about the balance issues and take my chances with getting a migraine (sometimes after a long time of not getting migraines, a drink won't set it off).
With the balance issues, even one drink will make me look like I’m totally looped. :) Deb
