Constant dizziness (drunk like feeling) sureal feeling

Hi guys,
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.

Thanks guys

Hi!
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!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
