My mind has been out of place for 2 weeks after drinking 14% alcohol beverage

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello! I've had this really bothersome problem after I drank a 4loko, the day after I had the alcoholic beverage, My chest started to tighten up as well as my throat, I thought it was gas so I took an alka seltzer and then my head started spinning and my mind felt as if I was in a dreamlike state. I got worried and I went to the hospital, but they said everything was okay with me and that I had nothing wrong, I still felt the symptom of my mind being out of place, I felt as though I was soulless or mindless and on top of them my arms and legs were weak to a point where I was bedridden for a whole day, I'd also have a shortness of breath plus my stomach would start burning up and churning. I gave it a week and the stomach problem stopped and the weird mental issue isn't as severe as it was. But then I started to feel a weird dryness kinda feeling on my forehead that to this hasn't gone away and my mind still doesn't feel good. I don't know if this is a liver problem or if I had messed up something with my lungs or brain..I am very scared because it is also difficult for me to take in a deep breathe sometimes and my head still doesn't feel in the right place. I'm 3 weeks into waiting for myself to heal but I feel like its not....am I dying??? Will I ever become normal again, I haven't been able to think straight. Please help!!

    Please go to your doctor and explain these symptoms to him or her.

    It could be a number of things, including relatively benign things such as a virus or whatever - it is that time of year after all, and viruses can last weeks - and you are probably unduly getting worried that it is somehow connected to the drink.

    But either way, even if it is somehow connected, a doctor is the best person to refer to.
