Passed out the day after drinking?

Ok sorry. I didn't know which one this went under. Anyways, I don't know if the drinking has anything to do with it but, I was watching TV with my friend and I got up to go get something to drink. I stretched my arms out and felt very very light-headed. Next thing I know I'm awake laying on the floor with my friend looking at me asking me if I'm ok. I felt fine, except I had a bruise on my leg from where I hit it on the table. What could have caused this?

Please help. I read it could've been a mini-stroke. I'm hoping not but I need some help.

Re: Passed out the day after drinking?

hard to say.. could've been you were still dehydrated, maybe your blood pressure bottomed out when you got up causing you to pass out.
I would say if you are feeling fine and you don't have any other symptoms I wouldn't get too concerned. If you start having any other unusual symptoms or it happens again definitely talk to your doctor. I've known people to have mini-strokes, but they didn't pass out from it like that.

Re: Passed out the day after drinking?

I agree. You were probably dehydrated and got up too fast which caused you to get lightheaded and that's all she wrote. Down you went...

Next time drink more water after you have been out drinking...
