I need to know about MS & dizziness. In the past, I was periodically light headed and dizzy but usually after climbing stairs and it usually passed fairly quickly. I got really dizzy after climbing a couple flight of stairs three days ago. I couldn't walk without weaving. Went to PT and really got dizzy. I couldn't make it home without a cane. I think it's passing when I go out and walk about 1/10 mile and it comes back when I stretch that to a quarter mile. Before this, I had my PC do an echo and a lung test to rule out problems with my heart or lungs. Now I'm pretty convinced it must be the MS. I've had a little virus this whole time and I know that can result in MS symptoms, but this has been pretty persistent. At what point do you say...yes, I have an infection but persistent dizziness after a short walk can be more than the virus? Is a flare ever manifested as dizziness or is dizziness more of a pseudo-exacerbation type symptom? I got the cane from a nurse in my MS center (the center is in the same building as PT) and she didn't seem too concerned. But that was three days ago.
