Im really anxious to find out about a condition i have been suffering for over 6 years now. I suffered a slight panic/anxiety attack whilst on a "lads" holiday 6 years ago when i was 18. Since then i have been suffering from this drunk like,sureal feeling which hs been constant ever since. I get headaches alot (which are bareable) i also suffer from light sensitivity and eye floaters. I played alot of soccer and was an extremely promising player and represented my country underage before i went on this holiday but when i came back it was like learning to walk again. It has been 6 years now and it has taken over my life completely. it has lead to depression and anxety at a much bigger scale than ever. I have difficulty in concentrating on simple tasks such as reading and understand a passage of writing,before this happened i was academically smart and i did not have much problems in school. i have also suffered memory loss since and it could take me up to 2-3 minutes to recall what i done yesterday. If any of ye guys are suffering from the same symptoms i would appreciate some feed back on what it may or may not be as i have had no luck with my doctor.
I am sorry to hear about your medical problems. Liver dysfunction (get liver enzymes done—liver function test), kidney dysfunction (get kidney function test done), and anemia can make a person appear drunk. Poor sleep pattern and sleep problems like sleep apnea too can cause brain fog. Sleep studies by sleep specialists can help diagnose this. Low Vit D or Vit B12 too could be the cause. Side effects of certain medications, street drugs and problems of balance (either in brain or ear) can also make a person appear drunk. Hence there are other causes than taking alcohol that can make a person appear drunk. Please consult a doctor as a comprehensive investigation is required to reach a diagnosis. Take care!
