'Tippy The Fainting Squirrel' Has Internet Dying To Find Diagnosis

This candid video above, titled "Tippy the Fainting Squirrel," has slowly become the talk of the Internet this week.

The short clip with no information provided by poster Honor Via depicts a squirrel appearing to eat a nut while standing, only to suddenly freeze, tip over for a few seconds, stand back up and start eating again. (Wash and repeat.)

The video has become the source of one burning question: what exactly is causing these 'fainting spells' to befall this poor squirrel?

Answers have varied from fermented foods causing drunkenness, orthostatic hypotension, forms of myotonia and more. Do you have some insight on this bizarre, medical condition? Be sure to leave some comment love below to let us know.
