My head feels extremely unbalanced ??

Something very weird happened to me the other day.

I drank a bottle of wine the thursday night, had some food etc. and went to bed.

I wasn't exactly "drunk" or anything like that.

I woke up a few times during the night, at first when i woke up i felt fine, not hung over or bad at all.

But as i lifted my head to get out of bead i thought the world was ending.

My head was swinging and spinning and my whole balance was just thrown off, I have never felt anything like that before, it was almost like being drunk, but not being drunk at the same time ?

My head was not sore, i was not dehydrated, i did not feel sick.

This stayed with me throughout the day, i could hardly walk, if i would bend my head down it felt as if the whole inside of my head/brain was swirling around out of control, throwing my body out of balance.

I did not feel hung over whatsoever, but my head, i was getting so scared, i did not know why or how this could be happening.

It is now 2 days later and it has only gotten somewhat better, but i still feel a bit unbalanced and dizzy now and then...

Please tell me it's nothing serious...anyone know what it could be ?

The wine may have triggered a migrane.

I would goto the store and buy the medication they use for sea sickness. It works very good for vertigo and may take away the symptoms. It is cheap and over the counter.

Please note I am not a doctor. This is just an idea .

I know you say you weren't hungover but wine will make my head throb no matter what and the food didnt help you. Did you eat right before bed? You could have picked up a cold or flu type bug, could have been something you ate. Don't worry if you are feeling better it is not the end of the world! Next time choose a yummy lager!

I don't know what could be wrong, but I would recommend going to the quack.....errr..... I mean Doctor and get your blood pressure and blood work done, that could be serious, sounds not fun at all.

I ate about an hour before bed, im not that worried anymore cause it's starting to feel better...

what scares me is the fact that i have drank waaaaay more than just a bottle of wine a night and something like this has never happened to me before.

i mean it's been 2 days and my head is still feeling weird and kinda disorientated.

Would suggest what pappa said as pappa's are always right! Could have something to do with blood pressure.

Actually a migraine does not necessarily mean headache pain, there are various types of migraines, and veritgo is a very real part of many type of migraines, as well as during this time of extreme pressure and vertigo your blood pressure may rise or fall more than usual, that can help a doctor determine whether it is migraine or something else and the type of treatment to give.

I suffer extreme migraine's, with vertigo and aura to the point of haveing blood vessels contract for too long causing a mild stroke on 3 occasions and have had my migraine issue classed as mini-strokes.

Therefore i still recomend going to the doctor for blood work and pressure checkup to determine if anything else is going on, you may just have to give up wine as it could be what sets off a migraine

just my $.02

To be honest I don't think im gonna be doing any drinking of any variety for a while, this was the single most crazy and frightening experience I have had.

Obviousely something, somewhere went wrong in my head which caused this to happen.

But im not gonna go to a doc just yet.

What you describe sounds very much like an inner ear infection. Maybe it was just by coincidence that it occurred after you drank the wine? Seriously though, inner ear infections can cause crazy vertigo and make you feel all out of whack and you may not even feel pain or have any other symptoms that you would normally associate with an ear infection. Would probably be a good idea to have a doctor look you over. Feel better!

it sounds like the inner ear. if so, nothing serious.

but you HAVE TO go to the doctor, to rule out something more serious.

because in the unlikely event that it is something serious,you need to get it sorted NOW.

anyway, the doc will give you something to treat inner ear infection/

Sounds like your equilibrium went off balance, it happens for a variety of reasons like Meniere's disease, superior canal dehiscence syndrome, an inner ear infection, or just cause.
