Seizures

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

The symptoms you are facing looks like a partial seizure secondary to over consumption of alcohol

Here is how you should go about it

1. Stop consuming excess alcohol, drink in moderation
2. check your sugars as most of the times sugar values will be very high after alcohol consumption which leads to similar issues
3. approach a neurologist for a cat scan and eeg if this problem persists

I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me
