Brief Answer: it is possible Detailed Answer: HI, thanks for using healthcare magic It is possible that these symptoms were related to alcohol intake. They are more likely as the number of drinks increase or there is a history of chronic alcohol use. There are other possible causes of acute hallucinations/memory loss such as : (1) dehydration (2)side effects of medications -opioids, steroids (3)inadequate nutrition (4)the use of other illicit drugs (5)low blood sugar (6)stroke (7)electrolyte imbalance due to poor fluid intake, vomiting, diarrhoea, excess urination (8)severe infection If the symptoms resolve then no further follow up is needed. If they recur without a history of alcohol use then you may need investigation by your doctor. This would include physical assessment and blood test to check electrolyte levels. I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
