You have confusional state or delirium as it is clled,
The cause nee to be assessed. You check for the cause, like aloholintake, trama, fever, consuming drugs, SSRI can cause delirium sometimes see stop them and observe if confusional state diappears. Exclude cause like infection/ UTI/ and any other.
Are you any other medical treatment?
