I am a 26 years old male and I was diagnosed with RRMS this summer after I went to the neurologist with diplopia. I have been an athlete at various levels throughout my life and have always been active outdoors so the diagnosis came as a shock to me. My physician put me on Rebif and I continued my life as usual as best as I could. I was having mild tingling and numbness here and there along with some constipation since my diagnosis but about a week ago I started to feel dizzy and lightheaded. It feels like as if I’m drunk (or hungover bc my head feels kind of heavy) and it will go away if I sleep and wake up but it doesn’t.. At first it was mild but got worse in a couple days. I can walk and run and stuff but I have to put a lot more effort into trying to balance myself while walking. The conditions worsens in crowded areas with lots of stimulation like the subway or the grocery store. All of this coincided with a very stressful time of my life so I don’t know if I’m having a relapse or an exacerbation or if this is something completely unrelated? I wanted to share this here to see if anybody has experienced something similar.
