Very strange feelings.

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hello all! I am 25 and had some heavy bouts of drinking in my past while working at pubs and such. Thankfully I have finally limited it down to once a week and that's it. Granted that once a week has been happened everyweek for sometime. It seems as of now, every time I go out the past few weekends. After my first or second drink I feel very off, almost like a dream. Very spacey and almost on edge. Seems like I have a hard time concentrating. Like a low blood sugar feeling. But, when I get to the 3rd, 4th drink. Etc. I feel clear headed again and right as rain. I do have aniexty and working a lot more. Could that be the issue or could it be a more serious issue? Thanks all!!

    Don't think I've heard that one before. Are you taking any meds? 

    I wonder if your pancreas is blasting out insulin and locking up all the carbos, then your brain feels starved. That's just a shot in the dark.

    Might be a good thing to run it by a doc, they might be able to figure it out right away. If your pancreas is getting torqued out of shape you may want to hang it up for a while.

    Hi - I think you should see your doctor and get a medical opinion. It could be anxiety but it's not really possible to tell online!!

    Come back to us if you need more support.  Good luck     love Tess

    Maybe the effect of the booze after a week without it, and then after a couple your body gets used to it again

    it is more likely the proteins which process alcohol into ethanol that give you the woozy effect i.e. ADH and ADHL I think

    Drinking affects  your sugar.

    So the Dr. would not be able to evaluate you unless you had a period of time like a month stopped.  AT LEAST that is what I was told...because when I stopped drinking I felt my sugar fluctuating.

    As far as feeling better after 3-4.....that is probably because your sugar level is then.

    I know like someone said below our pancreas regulates the sugar...and when we drink our pancreas is working it sounds like it is defiently related.

    Also, if there are sugar problems (Diabetes) in your family you would be more prone to having sugar related complications sad
