Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

From what you are saying, you were significantly intoxicated and had what we call a "black out" where you don't have memory of an event. All that you are aware of is that you had a head injury. Now, after a delay in time, you are experiencing weakness, nausea, and hearing problems. You very well might have suffered a concussion or even worse a small bleed under the skull called a subdural hematoma. You need to have someone take you immediately to an ER to be evaluated!

I hope this answers your questions. Please ask you have followup questions or need clarification. Please leave feedback!! Good luck!
