Balance Issues

Hi, I was diagnosed with MS over a year ago. Symptoms presented themselves initially as double vision and loss of balance. It cleared up though and I've been pretty much okay since, until 5 months ago. Since May my balance has gotten significantly worse. I use a cane now (quite a fancy one if i do say so myself) as without it I look like a drunk stumbling about the place (always fun to see people's faces when I stumble to my car and drive off :D). I had a recent MRI which showed no activity in my brain or spine. I just wondered if anybody else was struggling with balance and how long for? I discovered this site recently and have found it very helpful, though I haven't found any threads about lengthy balance issues. Any tips on how best to regain balance would be wonderful (I am currently on a waiting list for physio).
