@nicole_kelly , the feeling of exhaustion is one that is a common problem with MS. Even a short nap can’t cure it!

Did the dizziness and noticeable heartbeat last long after you’d woken up?

@stumbler it lasted for the rest of the day, i feel even worse today. i have to keep lying down also now it feels like when i try typing and stuff i cant do it right like im missing the keys i dont know if its from the dizzyness the only way i can describe it is that my arms feel wonky like i cant 100% control them

@nicole_kelly , the dizziness could be an MS symptom, or it might be something run-of-the-mill like an ear infection. If your eyes aren’t “behaving”, this could throw everything out of kilter.

Are you able to get to see your GP about this? You should also mention the heartbeat problem, even if it has been resolved.

If your GP draws a blank, then call and discuss what’s going on with your MS Nurse.

@nicole_kelly , I get my heart beat in my head so I know what you mean! I have been blaming tecfidera, do you take that?

@stumbler I went to my GP about the dizzyness a few weeks ago, they said it was said inner eat virus and gave me anti sickness meds they helped but they have ran out now. The heart beat thing I have been to my GP many times and they never give me a answer I think when I start my meds tomorrow after a couple weeks if things haven’t gotten better I will phone my ms nurse

@nicole_kelly , you need to speak to the Doctor again about your ear infection. It’s OK taking anti sickness meds, but these just treat the symptoms, not the cause.
