Dizziness, lost consciousness. Drank water. Was it seizure?

I was drinking one night with some friends I had allot of beer. I wasn t trashed but definatly feeling the alcohol. I ate dinner and had to go to the bathroom I went to look in the mirror and got this crazy dizzy spell my head was spinning I tried calling for help but it took everything in me to shout for a friend. By the time my friends heard me I fainted and was laying on the floor and convulsing and vomiting . I remember being down but it felt like a dream until I was done throwing up. I drank lots of water and it never happened again but what was that? Was I dehydrated? Did I have a seizure? I don t understand. Please help!

Thank you for posting your query.

There are two possibilities in your case:

1. Syncope- in this condition, a person faints for a short while, and recovers completely on its own. It may occur after exhaustion, fatigue, fear, etc, due to transient lack of blood flow to the brain.

2. Seizures- in this condition, a person may faint without any provocation. After regaining consciousness, the person has confusion for some time.

I feel most likely you had a syncope, given the circumstances in which you had it.

Please consult a neurologist for detailed evaluation.

Best wishes,
