MS Dizziness

   dizziness~ A sensation of feeling off balance or lightheaded.

Balance problems and in-coordination are common problems in people with multiple sclerosis (MS).
   When I have potty calls in the middle of the night I do not jump out of bed. I sit on the side of the bed for a few seconds then slowly stand up. Well this morning after slowly standing and starting to walk, my body headed off in a different direction which took me right into the wall. I tried righting myself only to keep walking into the dresser. Finally getting to the bathroom I was feeling light headed with no sense of balance. Getting back to bed was such a relief. I am still feeling that sense of off balance but not walking into the walls.
