Will dizziness improve from ocrevus?

I went 1alking with my family today, Malham Cove and Janet’s Foss. The walk included over 400 steps too. Very challenging at times.
I do not use a stick but my dizziness seems to be getting worse.
It was better after my Roast dinner and a little rest however. I have not helped myself as due to nerve pain I havent been able to go to the gym for 3 weeks. I am planning on going in a few days as the nerve pain has nearly subsided.

I had my first ocrevus infusion nearly 2 weeks ago, with my second part on Tuesday. Does anyone have any experience with how or if it might tackle the dizziness??

Thank you in advance.

I also use motion sickness medication for vertigo. For me, vertigo is often triggered by heat. So if I can get head of it and keep myself cool then I don’t need mediation for it. Good luck!

Yes, u was diagnosed 3 months ago. It’s a drug for RRMS and I am told stops the disease progression and stops lapses.
I have it on the NHS as they agreed to supply it for MSers. The cost was the problem initially but I’m assured its ground breaking.
To qualify you need to have had 2 lapses clinically in 2 years. The MRIs showed progression with the disease for me. Initially I was private which helped with the MRIs.
Further info can be found if you Google ocrevus. I hope that’s of help.

It works by removing components of your immune system. It removes those parts responsible for attacking the myelin sheath on your spinal cord and brainstem etc.
Hence disease progression is halted.
