Hi, am new to this forum but am stumped as to what to do with this problem. I have spoken to my neuro about this but it seems that they(the ms clinic) do not feel that this is a ms symptom. I have had recurring dizzy spells for quite a few years and lately they are accompanied by severe headache. I was dx'd late (51) and have only a mild form but this vertigo thing is very disabling. You never know when it will rear its head or how severe it will be. I quit copaxone in march of this year and it seems that this thing has gotten worse since then. Any suggestion?

I am having the same symptoms and was also told that they are not related to ms. I have had many test run on my inner ear for vertigo and it all returns normal. I feel that this is a symptom of ms and the only thing that helps me is to take a couple of valium during the attack. Sorry to not be of more help.

Vertigo And Headache
Hi , I was dx,d last year. I have had bad headaches the whole time. My neuro also didnt seemed to think it was related to teh ms either. But then again, she cocks her head everytime I tell her about a symptom.

I get dizzy and nauseas all the time usually accompained by a headache.
Finally she put me on promethazine, 25 mg for nausea. It does help.
Hope this helps gail in nh
