What to do if I'm feeling drunk but haven't drank any alcohol?

See your doctor: You don't say what you mean by "feeling drunk" but if you are talking about being dizzy, lightheaded or uncoordinated, there could be a neurological problem or a problem with your middle and inner ear. You need to express your concerns to a primary care provider and see if they can come up with an answer for you. You may be on other medications which can cause these effects as well. ...Read more

Episodes of dizziness head pressure, head feels swollen, blurry vision, feeling "drunk", feeling of dizzy & falling when lying on back, awaken frequently at night only during episodes. Possible causes?

Episodes of dizziness head pressure, head feels swollen, blurry vision, feeling "drunk", feeling of dizzy & falling when lying on back, awaken frequently at night only during episodes. Possible causes?

Bppv : You have the most common cause of dizziness. It is called benign positional vertigo. It is caused by having small crystals (calcium deposits that have broken off from the sense organ in the semicircular canal). These crystals give you the sensation you are moving, when you are not and they make you feel dizzy or lightheaded. This will wake you up from your sleep. See an ENT to fix it ...Read more

Need advise on what is the difference between the high feeling and the drunk feeling?

Lots of things: Intoxication is a continuum, from very mild feelings of euphoria with low alcohol levels, to lots of euphoria and disinhibition with moderate levels, to slurred speech, impaired gait, judgement, reflex times etc. Etc. With higher than moderate levels. People who drink regularly get tolerance, and need more and more alcohol to produce the same feelings. Depends on how fast, how much, what kind... ...Read more

I've been dizzy for 12 days. Can't work or drive, and have the feeling of being drunk. Can you give me any ideas on what to do?

See a doctor!: It sounds like you may have a problem affecting your middle or inner ear, causing damage to the labyrinth, a tiny organ in the inner ear which controls balance. Many things, including viral infection, head trauma, diabetes and other conditions may cause this. There are tests that can be done, and there are potential treatments, depending on what the tests uncover. See your pcp or an ENT specialist. ...Read more

Is it possible to have candida die off reaction from starting new probiotics? Have had drunk feeling several weeks. Started when I began probiotic.

Is it possible to have candida die off reaction from starting new probiotics? Have had drunk feeling several weeks. Started when I began probiotic.

Yes: Yes, certain probiotics may help to kill candida resulting in a Jarisch-Herxheimer or die-off reaction. This is caused by toxins from the dead yeast which can trigger inflammatory cytokines. Drinking more water, taking chlorella and/or charcoal, a good multivitamin, liposomal glutathione, milk thistle and natural anti-inflammatory agents like curcumin should help. Die-off symptoms lessen over time. ...Read more

Just started physical therapy for forward head posture and upper crossed syndrome. I'm feeling spaced out/drunk. I think there is neck degeneration.

Just started physical therapy for forward head posture and upper crossed syndrome. I'm feeling spaced out/drunk. I think there is neck degeneration.

Your probably right: The upper quadrant is a dynamic functional and structural entity. A dysfunction in one region causes compromises in another region. Treating just part of the problem allows the remaining problems to continue and additional compromises will become evident. You need to see about all the interrelationships and treat the composite of problems with appropriate therapies. ...Read more

Dr thinks artery in neck is being pinched+interfering w/blood flow to brain+causing my constant wooziness/drunk feeling. Is this serious?

Depends: Depends on whether that is truly the case. How was that detected? Was it an ultrasound or CTA, etc? Either way, it's not a very common scenario for a pinched artery in the neck to cause "wooziness". How serious it is, depends on the extent/degree of narrowing and whether there is "collateral" flow ...Read more

I'm pretty sure I have a viral ear infection or something. Dizzy, drunk feeling, heart beats fast etc. How can I treat it or when will it go away?

I'm pretty sure I have a viral ear infection or something. Dizzy, drunk feeling, heart beats fast etc. How can I treat it or when will it go away?

Medical evaluation.: I actually would suggest prompt medical attention. The reason is that you feel drunk (mental status change?), feel dizzy (maybe dehydrated or other) & have rapid heart rate (? Tachycardia due to dehydration?). This could be an ear infection, but I would err on the side of caution. Take care. ...Read more

I have been waking up lately feeling as if I was hungover or drunk. Do you know what could cause this?

Think Cortisol: Once ur pcp has ruled out the zebras (those serious but rare medical conditions that could be causing ur symptoms) consider testing for cortisol (saliva) and brain chemicals (neurotransmitters ((urine))). Based on test results, more specific lifestyle (diet, sleep, activity, etc.) and natural approaches can be customized. General measures include cleansing and modified elimination diet. ...Read more
