When I overdrink .My routine has been all my life to get to
When I overdrink .My routine has been all my life to get to the gym the following morning..I am a 2x normal time/frequency exerciser...watch my diet..and haven't smoked in 25 years. I have no health issues. Is my personal response OK to overimbibing whereby I work out the next morning?....It clears my head, relaxes me, and most importantly it gives me confidence that I AM DOING SOMETHING THAT MITIGATES SOME OF THE EFFECTS OFOVERDRINKING beyond just psychological,and INCLUDES PHYSICAL BENEFITS.. Latter is most important as I have some anxiety over physical health subjects. I realize your first advice would be to reduce alcohol to recommended levels which I am making excellent progress with, HOWEVER IF I OVERIMBIBE , do you have a problem with my exercising the morning after and do you concur in the PHYSICAL health value beyond the relaxation/endorphin effect by exercising the morning after or if an afternoon event such as a wedding,,,exercising in the evening but finishing at least 2hrs before bedtime. Waiting without exercise for a day or two would be problematical for me as I need the reinforcement of my exercise beliefs. I just want affirmation from you of these beliefs as above stated.. DR ONCE TOLD ME WHEN REVIEWING ONE OF MY EXCELLENT PHYSICAL EXAMS THAT HE COULD SEE THE TRAINING EFFECT IN PLAY. So obviously my after- drinking routine above had been beneficial..Now in retirement I have even increased my physical exercise time and lessened my drinking.I plan to be within recommended alcohol guidelines shortly. I am 73yo Male.Your response will be important to me. Thanks

My name isXXXXX living in Brazil, 74 years old.View more medical questions
My name isXXXXX living in Brazil, 74 years old. Since 2005 I have Neuropathy (some doctors say it is peripheric and others say it is sensorial) and I have Hepatitis C.Since two months I also have to take remedies against diabetes. My pains in the legs are getting worse and as I have discovered now benfothiamine in the sites I would like to ask, if it is really safe (600 mg a day?) I really don´t want to take allopathic remedies with all those side effects. Can you please give me an advice, I would be very very grateful for it. Thanks a lot, kind regards Helga
