MS and Vertigo: When the Earth Moves, but Not in a Good Way
Creating Our Own ‘MS Symptom Thesaurus’
But why go to such effort to describe this symptom of MS? Why not just call it “vertigo” and leave it at that?
As many of you know, the symptoms of MS can vary not only in their occurrence, but in how each of us experiences them. And sometimes describing our individual experience of a symptom is difficult.
Back in 2013, I hit upon the idea of creating our own “MS symptom thesaurus” to allow each of us who has experienced a particular symptom to describe it in our own words.
Over the years, we’ve published entries on muscle weakness, fatigue, spasticity, speech problems, the “MS hug,” depression, and more.
The words you’ve supplied have helped others who may be having the symptom for the first time describe what is happening to them. Doctors, families, employers, and friends have all benefited from your explanations.
What’s Your Experience of Vertigo?
So what about vertigo? Remember that your description can help other people express what they’re feeling or even help them realize that that is what’s occurring.
As the comments section of this blog is still under construction, please use our Life With MS Facebook page to leave your descriptions of how vertigo affects you and to help build our MS Symptom Thesaurus.
Wishing you and your family the best of health.
