I was wondering this because sometimes I'll have a couple of drinks to help cope and I know right off the bat that that is not a good strategy for coping or relaxing. However, I do notice that my pain is typically worse the next day and was wondering if it had anything to do with the affect alcohol might have on the oxygen deprivation caused by TMS. Meaning does it make it worse because you may be dehydrated or whatever. Any thoughts? Also thought the same thing about caffeine.
