befuddle (verb) confuse completely and make clear thinking difficult.

When something or somebody befuddles a person, they are completely confused and cannot think clearly. For example, frequent changes in the schedule of flights befuddle passengers. You befuddle others, when you make contradictory statements. 'His words are totally different from his deeds and that befuddles me.' This means that he says one thing and does something else, and that leaves me confused.
