Lightheaded for 4-6 days after binge drinking

Hey, sometimes when I'm out binge drinking i feel lightheaded and weird for 4-6 days after the drinking. It's like i can't tell if something is real or not(like atleast I do when i'm drunk, don't know if that is normal?), so I have to keep double checking all the time. I don't drink regularly, I'm just out drinking like 1 day every month. The last time i was out drinking (21.01.12) i drank about a 75cl bottle of 21.5% in under 15 minutes, and i am pretty sure that's about it. I also tend to smoke regular tobacco such as marlboro when i'm drunk so i might have done that(I don't smoke regularly), just thought I'd mention it in case that could have something to do with how i feel now.. So my question is, why do I feel this way, and what should i do/eat/drink to feel better?

Sorry my english ain't that good so i'm not sure which category i should put this in.
In advance, Thanks!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Dizziness and headache in guise of hangover is common after drinking., Supportive pain relief is enough.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
