Hi Lou,

Wjay do you mean when you say you’re feeling off balance? I’ve had a few occasions of unbalanced feeling, but they happend about five years ago, predisagnosis. Mine tended to get worse ove a few weeks, hung around for longer than they were welcome, but then they would go away again, fairly ‘standard’ ms shenanigans.

The brain balances you by obtaining details from three senses:- the view from the eyes, the ears and the feedback from the feet/legs.
So, if one of these sensory inputs is a bit off, then balance will suffer.

Hi Gav
I can be just standing and I will find myself falling backwards, when walking around the house I have to hold onto things alot! I use a Walkaide foot stimulator and if Im feeling off balance sometimes it throws me off balance even more when it zaps my knee!

I find that each morning I am off-balance for a couple reasons.. It’s dark when I wake up so my senses are not grounding myself and my body temperature is high which causes the light-headedness and off balance feeling upon changing positions from lying to standing.
