Customer Question
I consumed alcohol last...

I consumed alcohol last night and was fine this morning.i felt 100% sober. This afternoon I started experiencing vertigo symptoms. Even though today I’m sober can my symptoms be related to last nights drinking

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Dizziness especially if I move my head left and right or if I stand up after sitting down

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that makes your head feel worse or better?

I dealt with this once before but it went away on its own. The symptoms are coming and going

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I do have allergies. I’m from AK and went on vacation to Tunisia. I got a sinus infection due to climate and 40 degree temp change. I came back to AK two weeks ago

drinking alcohol can cause dehydration

if you didn't drink enough water and fluids last night and today, dehydration can cause you to have vertigo and dizziness symptoms

bad anxiety symptoms can cause you to have vertigo as well.

sinus infection and sinus inflammation can cause vertigo and dizziness

What can I do to make this better
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 3 months ago

drinking more water and fluids can help

do you have sinus congestion? runny nose?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I have sinus congestion and pressure.
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 3 months ago

that can cause a sinus infection and cause dizziness and vertigo symptoms

you should see a doctor

you may need a course of antibitoics to treat a sinus infection to clear your sinus symptoms to help your dizziness

your dizziness now would not be due to your alcohol

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
