It's been a very MS-y week.
With incredible vertigo now being added to my list of symptoms.
Dizziness is a common symptom of MS. Personally, I feel off balance and lightheaded pretty much every day. Less often, people with MS can have the sensation that they or their surroundings are spinning - a condition known as vertigo. These symptoms are due to lesions in the areas of the brain that coordinate and maintain equilibrium.
I hardy made it out of bed this morning, and ended up crumpled in a heap on the bathroom floor. I've been in bed ever since, trying not to move my head at all.
Even with a 2 hour nap, it still feels like I am permanently spinning. Barf...
My giant baking bowl has been holding guard just in case I need to use it.
I am not sure if anything can be done - I've heard some people with MS can take a short course of steroids or anti-motion sickness medication. I put in a call to the nurse anyway.
I guess this means I have no choice but to sleep away the weekend... right boys?
