Feel drugged?

I have a lot of sleep issues and the nausea and dizziness make it difficult to get sleep. Sometimes I get so tired I sleep for ridiculously long periods (17 hours the other day, although I woke up a lot in between). Sometimes I feel exhausted, stumble everywhere, don't make a lot of sense and generally feel drugged, like I overdosed on NyQuil. Anyone else feel like that?

Been this way for a few days now striaght. When I walk I feel drunk, tho of course I am not, and like I'm crooked. Like I'm here but I'm not. Really tird and weak. I have b12 deficiency. Have you ever been tested for this? Idk if its chiari or low b12 or both. I get injections from dr even. They dont help

I feel like this! In fact I got the "drunk" feeling last night at work. I was perfectly fine one minute, looked down into a box for a few, and when I went to walk back to the office I instantly felt like I downed a few Margaritas, ended up running into a wall and busting my mouth.. and had to be dragged back to the office then the nurse's office to get drug tested and breathalyzer (how rude). But yeah.. you're not alone..

I'm sorry you guys have to go through it too, but I'm glad I'm not alone! A friend called the other day and I was trying so hard to keep up with the conversation. She very nicely told me that she'd call back later because I wasn't making any sense and she could hear that I didn't feel good. I try to stay mostly immobile when im like this, but I bounce off the hallway walls on trips to the bathroom. Too bad I have to drive to the drs today. Everyone watch out!

So u have the problem of the conversations?? so thats chiari too...oh nope...I hate it...sometimes I speak and I am wondering how the sentences get out of my mouth as my brain is still stuck in word 1...when someone asks me how I feel I would describe it as an neverending lsd trip with massive pain ( I think thats how being drugged should feel) its annoying to lose control.
