Dizziness

Who else here gets dizzy/lightheaded as symptom of ms? I’ve had rrms for 20 years and never had issues until past year I get dizzy/light headed I should say, because there’s no spinning. But at any small amount of tiredness, any small amount of alcohol, any small turn of my head, any small stressor. Do others feel like this? Like I work and have a family I don’t want to stop my life but honestly I feel all I can do is rest preferably lying down much of the time! I guess I kind of thought this would subside eventually after my last flare up over a year ago. Guess not. Ok the venting is over. Thanks for any feedback!

@angieh I have it quite often it was one of the reasons I got diagnosed in the end, it seemed like it was vertigo but if’s it’s vertigo it last a lot longer than the bouts I got to start with.
I have had it quite a bit the last 2-3 weeks – having a cold that will not fully come out or go away doesn’t help!
One this I was told was to try travel sickness tablets and that does help me a little on those days you can’t stop.
I hope you feel better soon.

Hi @angieh Vertigo was one of mymain problems when I wasndxd 26 years ago. I spent 3 months in bed with the other half and the offspring never knowing if mummy was ever going to get up again! I did eventually and got my first DMT 3 months later. Was on Avonex for 23 years till it stopped working 18mths ago so hope your vertigo will sort itself out eventually. I got back on my feet, drove, swam, danced (apart from turning fast!) did everything for a lot of years, bought up my family, even played with grandchildren until a few years ago when things started to go downback fast, but not complaining
