Thanks for the query. Such twitching and tingling sensations should be checked to rule out neurological problems. You should be examined by a neurologist for the same.

Do mention your alcohol intake during your visit as that does have a correlation. Meanwhile, limit your intake as far as possible.

Also, I would like you to have your blood sugar levels checked considering your age.

Wish you a great weekend.
