hi my name is jimmy boltwood 2 weeks ago i took a full after haveing a night out i was walking home from a mates house. on th way home i walked about 2 mile to my house i know i should have got a taxi. anyway i fell a few times but noticed days after my fall i was feeling a bit weired as in i found i was burning up but no temperature i have gone off my food and drink and feel like im deydrateing all the time and produceing depressive syptoms so the i havent been right since and ive been reading up on spinal injuries and it sounds simlar to what i am feeling at the moment plus my legs feel a bit weak. so the doctor reckons im suffering depression which im not i was ok until id fallen i havent been right since ive had spinal xrays they couldnt find anything but does that mean i havent suffered spinal injurie or can the fibres in the spine be damaged i just know i havent been right since its all happened. so can anybody help also would an mri help see if they is anything wrong.

  • By having a night out, I assume you mean drinking alcoholic beverages, just because you fall down does not automatically mean spine damage. You may need other tests to determine if you gave yourself alcohol poisioning. You can have lasting effects from that and symptoms can be simular to what you describe.
