Hi. We can continue after this if you'd like but with your history you have to get to a doctor--preferably an A&E right away. There is nothing you can do on your own here that would protect you from having another seizure, and delerium tremens--the DT's--if you go into that can be up to 50% fatal

So do you feel this is an urgent matter
Absolutely and the sooner you get seen the better Maureen. Just the possibility of a seizure--and since you've had one in the past--is high and that can be very dangerous depending on where you are and what you are doing when it happens

So should I call ambulance is it not a good idea to drive would u say
Definite not a good idea to drive and unless someone else can do that for you the best thing to do is to call for an ambulance

Shall I call 999 and say its emergency
Yes--tell them that you've been without a drink for 36 hours, are having severe withdrawal symptoms and emphasize that you had a seizure in the past under the same circumstances
