Dear Twinkle Toes, I phoned my GP about vertigo on Thursday and on this website, wrote a thread called dizziness. Kindly a couple of people gave me great advice. I also wrote to my MS nurse, I am sharing her response, which I also found useful.
Sorry to hear this. Your GP is correct, dizziness/vertigo is a common symptom in MS but he will need to refer you on for assessment so that you can have the , most appropriate treatment. As with most symptoms in MS they may be better some days than others and they may be exacerbated by things like stress and change in temperature… it may be the sudden warmer weather that has exacerbated it this time? As there would be a link there in the number of days that you have had the symptoms increased?
Your Gp can prescribe for acute dizziness something like a Stematil or Cinnarizine may be of benefit but these are not for long term use.
He may also consider a referral to ENT for assessment and they may the refer you for vestibular physiotherapy which is specifically aimed at dizziness and inner ear problems.
Have you informed the DVLA of your MS? End of email.
Hope this helps. Ali x
