Feeling shaky, sick, have headache, dizziness after drinking

After a night out but only having 3 small glasses of wine I passed out and cannot remember anything that happened for the rest of the night. My partner said i was sick and quite violent. I don t remember this at all . This was two days ago I now feel shaky, sick , headaches and dizziness . I think my drink may have been spiked as the amount of alcohol I had was very little

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

There could be two possibilities for your violent behaviour and passing out after consuming a moderate quantity of alcohol - one is that your drink could have been spiked with some other psycho-active drug, or you could have had an idiosyncratic reaction to alcohol (which happens in a very small percentage of people).

However, now you have developed symptoms of headache, shakiness and dizziness. Like you mentioned, these are unlikely to be alcohol-related, since your quantity of alcohol that you consumed is unlikely to due be causing any significant withdrawal effects this late. I would advise you to have a proper medical evaluation by a doctor to find out what is going on, so that appropriate treatment can be initiated.

Wish you all the best.
