(KMOV.com) -- A bizarre story out of Texas as a man shows up to the emergency room complaining he felt dizzy.

Doctors found the man to have a blood alcohol content of .37. Doctors thought the man was drunk.

However, doctors discovered he was suffering from something called Auto-Brewery Syndrome. Doctors said the man’s stomach makes so much yeast it causing his body to become its own brewery.

The rare condition is now published in the International Journal of Clinical Medicine and doctors prescribed an anti-yeast medication to help combat the problem.
