So this morning I had a few cups of Duncan Donuts Turbo Coffee. I often drink coffee, but this is the first time I have had this type of coffee. Well now to the story which may or may not be related. At first I felt fine, but when I tried to read my eyes could not focus properly. This made work a little tricky. This passed and things seemed to be going ok. But then I "lost time" I have no recollection of anything between 7:30 and 8:30 pm. Also after this time the lower knuckle on my pinky finger really hurts and is bruised. I do not remember doing anything to my pinky. Also I am still having trouble focusing my eyes and feel "out of it". I checked my head (as did my wife when I got home) and there are no bumps or cuts. Anyone have any idea what may be going on?

Seconded. Correlation is not causation -- meaning, the coffee is probably unrelated to the symptoms.

Oh, man, that's weird. CNN was just running a story about how an Arizona congressman was hospitalized tonight after being assaulted by some nutjob in a skirt who ran up on him, stabbed him in the eye repeatedly with his pinkie, and then ran off. I'm sure everyone in your community will sleep better once they've caught that guy!

Are you diabetic? It really sounds like some warning signs. Eyesight, memory and extremity bruising all are side effects of diabetic disorders all of which could be triggered by a metabolic shift like a new coffee.

Get to a doctor and get some bloodwork.

To answer, I am not diabetic,but my brother is type 1 (juvenile). Nothing has come up in any bloodwork in the past, but who knows.

I have been doing much better the past two days. I have not seen a doctor (yet). My job doesn't believe in sick time or paid holidays for that matter. If it happens again I will be seeing a doctor straight away.
