Can you blackout and still be awake?
Correspondingly, are you conscious during a blackout?
When you blackout you remain conscious and may continue to talk and socialize; you just don't remember the details afterwards. This can be dangerous for a wide range of reasons, the most obvious being driving while under the influence without realizing what you're doing.
Likewise, people ask, can you act normal during a blackout?
A PubMed article says a blackout is a type of amnesia that happens when you're drunk but conscious. It's common for people to walk, talk, and act normally while blacked out. It's also impossible to form new memories during a blackout.
Feeling lightheaded and weak and having the sensation of spinning are warning signs of fainting. If you notice any of these signs, sit and put your head between your knees to help get blood to your brain. You could also lie down to avoid injury due to falling. Don't stand up until you feel better.
