MS questions
levip posted:
I have experienced lack of coordination, dizzyness, a "drunk" feeling even though I have not drank in months, fatigue, stumbling, etc. Should I go to a doctor to get this checked out? If anyone could help me that would be great. Thank you.

Dear levip,

If you have not been diagnosed with MS and these are your first symptoms, then you do need to see your Primary Care Physician. These symptoms can be caused by many other conditions besides MS.

If you do already have an MS diagnosis, you might be experiencing a flare and you should see your neurologist right away.

I have not been diagnosed. I made an appointment today. What do you think it might be?

Update: I was diagnosed with vertigo. Does this have any correlation to MS?
hackwriter replied to levip's response:
It can be MS-related--or it can be a common condition called Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), which is caused by "stones" in the inner ear falling out of place. If it is MS-related there are some medications that might help, but if it is BPPV, that is temporary and should subside within days or weeks.
