Question: vertigo...or?

littleindian - Sat Aug 28, 2004 7:25 am

For the past week I have had vertigo. First, it started in the morning and by night, I was feeling fine. But, today it caught up with me at night. Along with this, I have had blurred vision, double vision, and sometimes a slight Headache. I have tried to look up reasons, and I do know that a lot of areas can cover this. One that worries me is MS, I do also have tremors in muscles, but not too often. And, I suffer from a lot of the side affects of MS, including restless leg syndrom. Please help me!!!!!

Hi littleindian,
The symptoms you suggest would'nt really suggest MS (this of course is purely speculative). They do however, indicate that you should get a neurological examination to exclude other neurological diseases. Vertigo could be caused by diseases affecting the brain or the inner ear. From the picture you are painting a disease of the brain should be excluded before anything else.

Best regards,
