Sometimes you are put in a situation that you never expected to be in, you actually feel so confused that you don't know how to react at that moment. It means you are flummoxed.

If you are flummoxed by something, you are confused by it and don't know what to say or do as you can't think clearly.
For example, a student may not be able to solve a Math equation as he's confused and has no idea how to go about doing it, it means he is flummoxed
