The Room is Spinning

I had my first experience with vertigo this afternoon.  I was sitting at my desk typing.  I was looking down at my keyboard and looked up to my monitor and the room started spinning.  It was very strange.  I didn’t feel out of sorts or anything, but the room was definitely rotating.  I was IMing a friend and mentioned it to her and IMed my husband to let him know in case things got worse, but it went away within a minute.  It was really strange.

Apparently vertigo is experienced at some point in about 20% of MS patients.  Somehow that doesn’t surprise me.



  1. sorry to hear the room was spinning without alcohol invovled. hopefully this won’t be a frequent thing.

  3. Thanks for your note! Post ideas have been coming slowly recently. I guess it’s a good sign that things are somewhat okay right now and that the other things in my life have been keeping me pretty busy. Distractions are wonderful things!
