(Detroit, MI)

I've been dizzy since March 2010 and was diagnosed with M.S. in August of 2010. (I'm) still dizzy and its now March of 2011. Do you know what can help the dizziness go away?? It's very annoying and keeps me from doing everything!!!

Something That I Know
by: Lorna

Dizziness is a well know symptom of MS. I have been dealing with this for many years, have to be careful to avoid falling.

Falling or any physical trauma is not food for
MS, I know this because in the past falls have resulted in MS flairs for me.

Be careful.

Thank you soo much Lorna for that comment about falling.. Sorry to hear that it happened for you.. I have a walker so when I get dizzier than the normal dizzy, I use my walker for stability.. I can't walk up the stairs by myself, and my husband walks with me everywhere else if I need, so don't ever have to worry about falling..

Dizziness, Plus...,

, SEH, 8th Cranial Nerve Damage and Treatments

I have chronic non-stop dizziness - seems to be a combination of vestibular and CNS issues. It is accompanied by ear fullness, tinnitus, hearing loss, vertigo. Also, I believe that I have 8th cranial nerve damage from the big attack that led me to dx (diagnosis).

I have tried meclazine, dramamine, yoga, diuretics, diet, cutting a hole in ear drum to equalize pressure and benzodiazapines. Of those, the long acting benzos are like magic.

I have been trying to delineate vestibular vs CNS issues. I just got scripts for new audiologist testing, water physical therapy for ataxia and an MRI on ears to see if its secondary endolymphatic hydrops.

It's a form of hell....
