Feeling sick and problems with balance


Just wondering if anyone else has had this. I start to feel sick and then my balance seems to be affected aswell. I have a lot of wind aswell. My balance is similar to when you get off a boat or if you are a bit drunk. I’m not sure if it is related to what I’m eating or not. Have had it for the last four weeks. Have had the balance problems before, quite a bit worse but I didn’t have the sick feeling with it. I thought it had something to do with my sinuses, as I hadn’t been diagnosed then. Just wondering if anyone else has had similar symptoms and are they related.



Hi Adrian I suffer with this pretty much on a daily basis :frowning: I’m not dx yet either but I’m pretty sure some1 will be along to confirm our suspitions about these symptoms soon hope ur feeling lil more stable soon Lou :slight_smile:

Hi Lou,

Thanks for your reply. I have been diagnosed. I was just wondering if there is anything you can do to relieve the symptoms and whether they are related.



Definitely best to get it checked out at the GP’s Adrian.

It could be pretty much anything and not necessarily related to your MS.

(Fwiw, I do get a lot of nausea and take domperidone for it - it’s been written off as being related to my MS and/or my MS-related IBS, but I’ve had it well and truly investigated to make sure there is no other possible cause.)

Thanks Karen,

I’m not really that bothered about it but if it is exacerbating my balance problems then I do want to sort it out which it seems to do.

Not sure how it would do but here does seem to be a correlation. Maybe they’re just symptoms that come at the same time?

I did have really, really bad sinuses three and half years ago and my balance was bad then. I stopped drinking milk and it all cleared up. My sinuses are bad now. I was wondering about getting them drained as they have been blocked since but have been manageable.

Anyway, thanks for your reply. Very much appreciated. Will see how it goes and go to the GP if it gets any worse.

Thanks. Have a good day.
