    The weird feeling in thumb if related to alcohol consumption could be precipitation of gout. Please check your uric acid levels and if they are high it confirms. Alternatively there might be a wrist problem like Dupyutren's contracture where there is pressure on nerves. Take crocin for pain and if it does not subside consult your doctor.

    The weird feeling in your thumb could be from your nerves - either pressure on nerve when you slept wrong or could be Alcohol affecting it.

    I expect this to improve with time. What I am more worried about is your behaviour of using Alcohol at such young age . Alcohol

    could cause multiple problems including affecting your liver, your memory, nerves, your heart . Please stay from alcohol until you

    are at least 21. You will be able to make better decisions at that time.
