I was out drinking last night and now the joints between my finger ache terribly. Its horrible! My hands went numb last night is that the reason (my hands go numb even after just a sip of alcohol)? I went from a pretty cold place to a hot sunny day so is the temp. change the reason? How can I make it better?

Joint issues with fingers are far outside our scope as a sex, sexual health and relationships advice organization.

However, if you experience numbness of your hands with drinking, even a little, that's a pretty strong indication that drinking is not a sound choice for you.

I'd talk to a general physician about this, okay?
