Hi @tammylouise, I get vertigo, it is my main symptom and reasonably normal so I am told. For ages I thought it was “sea legs ” as we spend time sailing , that was before I knew I had MS.
Very jealous, have always wanted a tortoise!

Oh poor you, that sounds awful @tammylouise. Did you ever get migranes? What does your neuro say? I was like that after I had had my lumbar puncture, ended up in hospital with dehydration! Hope you are feeling better today x

@tammylouise , MS can cause Vertigo, but there can be other causes, e.g. Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benign_paroxysmal_positional_vertigo .

The Epley Manoeuvre referenced that can provide relief is something that you can do at home. Check out Youtube for a video.
