Does it take a couple of days to really get over the symptoms of a complex migraines? Like dizziness, off balanced, and confusion lingers for awhile?

Three stages: Migraine may present with a vague prodrome about 24 hrs prior to the headache and afterwards, there is a postdrome period, usually for 24-48 hrs. So your symptoms sound typical.

Given your age, I would still recommend an endoscopy (EGD) to ensure that you do not have a stricture or other long term injury to your esophagus. Barrett's esophagus and possibly esophageal cancer are concerns in your age group. GERD can often be chronic, and you may need lifelong medications as well. ...Read more

Body's reaction: This is a somewhat normal response from 'too much alcohol'. The body is getting rid of the poisons you consumed over night. Yes, sorry, alcohol is a poison - that's why we get 'drunk' with too much of it. I suspect you'll feel better shortly. I recommend chicken soup, coconut water or whatever your fluid of choice is - Gatorade? to replace some of the fluids and salts you've lost after all this. ...Read more
