Drunk Feeling

Hey everyone,

My name is Brandon and I am 21 years old and live in Scottsdale, AZ. Since late April I have been feeling very "off". Everyday I feel like I am drunk and detatched from reality. I feel very spaced out and from time to time I feel tingling across my head. I saw a movie the other night and it was very hard for me to focus on the movie especially when there were fast paced scenes. Also, when it is dark outside driving has become harder. It is hard for me to focus with all of the bright lights. My sister has epilepsy but I have not exerpienced any seizures. I took a blood test and everything was perfect. I am going to see a neurlogist soon.

I went to my family Dr. this morning and when he put his finger in front of my face and had me look at it as he moved it up and down and from left to right it was hard for me to focus on it it made the feeling worse. I have seen "floaters" for years now but my eye doctor said it is a normal problem. I feel very out of it and I was just wondering if anyone has gone through this? I also feel pressure in my face under my eyes and in my forehead from time to time.

Re: Drunk Feeling

Bkraniger,

It would be difficult to say if you are having seizures and having further tests done could provide you with more answers. The fact that your sister has them could be significant because I have a few members of the family who had them as well as myself. I hope you're able to find out what is causing these symptoms and keep us posted.
