Stress trigger ?

Hi, sorry to post 2 days in a row. New to all of this. Can stress trigger an episode? My first recognised episode was last year when I had dizzy spells and nausea for around 6 months. I have a lot going on in my life at the minute - mam has had 2nd stoma surgery and now has an infection, me and my fiancé or 10 years have decided to split and obviously I am awaiting diagnoses or answers to the lesions in my brain and spine when I have lumbar puncture in a few weeks. I feel as though my dizzy spells are coming back and having really bad migraines which i think is causing the sight issues and dizziness maybe?

Yes for me it does, feel like a relapse, but goes once the stress calms down. I mentioned this to my consultant years ago and they dismissed it. I felt they were wrong. My stress is mostly work , its an IT thing servers.


Thank you. I have no clue what to look out for or take notice of at the minute as I’ve only seen the neurologist once and the whole thing was totally noticed by fluke.
