Hi, My name is Mike. I'm 43, and I'm having issues with a feeling like I'm drunk and I haven't touched alcohol since 2004. It started on Saturday, April 12th after I had been standing outside at work(I work at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington, Texas) for 4 1/2 hours in 35-40 mile an hour steady winds with extremely high tree pollen counts this year. I was fine the the whole time being there, but driving home I started getting this dizzying, almost drunk feeling in my head and I had to put extra effort in concentrating on driving. Now it's almost 2 weeks and this feeling has not gone away. I originally thought that it might have been allergies, but it just doesn't seem like it to me. I have no insurance until my wife adds me to her's when her open enrollment comes around later this year. The feeling only gets worse when I drive or walk, or when I lay down. When I sit up it's not as bad, but moving my head in any direction can affect it. Please help me figure out what's wrong, because, like I told my wife, driving with her and/or my son in the car scares me when I'm feeling like this. I also don't have any choice but to drive since my son's school schedule and my wife's work schedule during the week don't work well together.
I am a smoker, one half to a pack a day, I'm 5'6" tall, 190lbs., and I honestly don't eat the healthiest either. My wife says I don't drink enough water. I drink water hear and there daily, but she's probably right.
