Does anyone experience dizziness?

I was diagnosed with MS about 5 years ago. I am currently on Avonex and take Low Dose Naltrexone. My biggest sympton of my MS is a feeling of dizziness. Does anyone else experience dizziness and what treatments do you use to help combat that?

research on genetic differences

I wonder if this will one day be relevant to the study of MS...



Tiny genetic differences have huge consequences

January 21, 2008 - PhysOrg - A study led by McGill University researchers has demonstrated that small differences between individuals at the DNA level can lead to dramatic differences in the way genes produce proteins. These, in turn, are responsible for the vast array of differences in physical characteristics between individuals.

Differential Diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis

In looking through one of the other MS sites I noticed the link that I've included below which goes into some valuable MS diagnosing information intended for the neurologist but is interesting to us laypeople.

I would break into a very cold sweat and sometimes collapse and almost pass out. I went to see a doctor who immediately sent me to the emergency room. They ran a gamut of blood tests and found nothing and thought perhaps it ...

So I'm thinking

I don't want to go on Rebif and I would rather use copaxone. I know I need to consult my doctor and I plan on doing so this coming week.

Morgellons

OK,

This is a total side note to MS. ACheerleader wrote some stuff about thinking her husband may have this (AC, forgive me if it wasn't you, but it was someone on here). At any rate, it looks like it is getting the attention of the CDC now.
