Constantly feeling drunk but am sober

Problem: The best way I could put this is that I just feel drunk and I am 100% sober

Symptoms: Hazy/fuzzy vision (picture having 2 or 3 beers), slower thinking

How long: Two weeks

What I've done so far: Went to two general doctors. Both told me to get a work up, go to neurologist then opthomalogist. I went to neurologist and he has no idea of what's going on. He's treating me right now as if its a migraine and gave me Methylpredinsolone. I did take a brain MRI and some brain scan but I won't see the results for two weeks. Opthomalogist is next week so I won't know whats going on with that.

Have any of you felt this before? I'm curious as to if anyone has ever experienced and cured this. I don't want to feel drunk for the rest of my life. It is an extremely depressing thought.

Re: Constantly feeling drunk but am sober

Hi soberly drunk.
I am glad you are seeing a neuro...what type of neuro is this? Do they have a specialty? Some neuros do specialize in migranes; other specialize in Motor issues, Parkinsons/ MS...some just do strokes...

The drug you are taking is a steroid; used to bring down inflammation. Did they explain why they are using this?

I felt like you did for a few days prior to having some new symptoms over a decade ago..the new symptoms included my eyes going fuzzy and then my hands going numb. My MRI showed damage to my brain; resulting in a Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis. Not trying to scare you; but please do make sure that the neuro you see orders both a brain and spine MRI.. these two tests can really help definitively rule out this disease which is quite common.

Having lived with MS now for 13+ years, I can assure you, it has not affected my quality of life. No one even knows I have the disease unless I share it with them!

Please let us know how your test goes!
RRMS- dx 05

Are you an alcoholic?
Have you taken medications called benzodiazepines such as valium, klonopin and ativan, if so how long have you been taking these for?
