Children can be quite groggy when first waking up.

Ms Wingate appeared initially to be lethargic, groggy, and monosyllabic.

No specific questions on the point were put to Sadie Salt, but she agreed with a portmanteau question from Mr Rowley which referred to the patient as being "fairly groggy but awake".

The Case Summary set out the allegation, as noted by police: that AE had given Ms de Freitas a pill which he claimed was Vitamin C, then tied her up, "waterboarded" her and had unprotected sex with her. She said that she wasn't in control of her body and felt groggy.

He had then been referred to Dr. Camillus Power, Consultant in Pain Management, who started him on treatment with Amitriptyline which is an old anti-depressant which is often used in low doses for managing pain symptoms. However, this caused a problem as it made him groggy next day.

What Is the Origin of the Saying "Groggy"? Meaning unwell the term groggy denotes a hangover from the alcoholic drink grog. The word grog comes from "Old Grog," which was the nickname sailors gave to Admiral Vernon, the commander in chief of the West Indies.

The language was at its begininng merely oral, and all words of necessary or common use were spokent with great diversity. We can observe those who cannot read to catch sounds imperfectly, and utter them negligently. When this wild jargon was first reduced to an alphabet, every penman endeavoured to express, as he could, the sounds which he was accustomed to pronounce or to receive, and vitiated in writing such words as were already vitiated in speech.

It is possible to argue that the word 'groggy' could have its origin in the following words, of my own choice, namely:

1. delusive, from delusus, Latin, means apt to deceive, beguiling, imposing on;

2. grotesque, from grotesque, French; grotesco, Italian; it means distorted of figure, unnatural and wild.

3. grouse; a kind of fowl; a heath-cock; The squires in scorn will fly the house for better game, and for look for grouse.

4. grout, in Scotland called groats: coarse meal, pollard; also: that which purges off: Sweet honey some condense, some purge the grouf; also: a kind of wild apple.
