Had 2 glasses of wine, was hungry and tired.Not unusual. This particular night my blood pressure was 179/98. Could that have been any of the reason I became disoriented and cant remember the event?

You might have had a TIA, basically a mini-stroke.

Or there might be something else going that caused both the disorientation and the high BP.

Whatever, it certainly seems to some to get checked out.
