I've been drinking quite heavily for the past couple of

Patient : I've been drinking quite heavily for the past couple of nights, I woke up fine after the first night but it's been hours since I stopped drinking and I still feel rather dizzy. As well as the dizziness I have been experiencing light nausea and cold chills. The cold chills are accompanied by exessive sweating. Is there any reason to be concerned at this point? My breathing is fine and I've been concentrating on breathing properly as well as drinking water. I don't want to take any risks by sleeping it off because I want some advice first. I'm 17 years old and I've never had problems like this before so I'm just curious. Thankyou!
