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.
Beside above, are blackouts dangerous? Blackout is a general term for a loss of memory, and the most common cause is a rapid increase in blood alcohol levels. This is sometimes called alcohol-induced amnesia. Problems forming new memories and blackouts are consequences of a rapid increase in BAC, most often caused by binge drinking.
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.
What does blacking out feel like?
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.
