hackwriter responded:
Dear Heather,

Vertigo, headaches, balance, and walking problems can certainly be MS-related, you need to see your neurologist as soon as possible to have this documented and to be examined. More tests might be done and you might get treatment, possibly with steroids. Your doc needs to dig deeper and find out what's going on, but that's only going to happen if you report it and push for answers.

Please don't delay in calling your doctor. I hope you'll be feeling better soon.

all my other symptoms are documented with my old dr.. i have since switched dr,s because he blew me off as if nothing is wrong, i don't know exactly whats wrong but something is,if nothing was i wouldn't have had 4 ER dr's tell me i need to get tested for ms ASAP but again my dr blew me off.4 yrs now i am for sure going to call my new dr (got a new one a yr ago) and hopefully he will be more willing to listen to me more than the last guy.

thank you for your reply Kim.
