So I got this new symptom that started Thrusday... vertigo. When i went to the doctor he told me i had bad balance, after stumbling last night hubby took me to ER (yet again) and they said my eyes show that I have vertigo. Then he was talking about MRI and if I have ever had a brain, well by this point I had so much meds in me that all i could muster out was "nope never had a brain"....I hope he was talking about MRIs still?!?!
Anyhow, I am rambling... does anyone else have vertigo as a symptom? They put me on meclizine (antivert) and said I need an MRI cause I may have MS? Oh crimeny does this ever end?? After falling last night i broke down and balled my eyes out to hubby , thought he was ging to have me committed... hey maybe that would actually get some attention to fix me?!?!?!

I do get vertigo, but not too badly. It's more when I'm in a moving vehicle, (the world spins around - and I can't ride a bike or swing,) or when I look at patterns (in-your-face stripes, zig-zags, etc.) Movies get me, too, action movies where -say- Spiderman whoops through the air. I wouldn't even try to watch a 3-D movie!

But are you talking about falling-down vertigo just from walking or doing nothing at all? I hope not. That would be really tough.

I too get vertigo from time to time.  Hallways and aisles in stores get me, makes me feel like I'm walking sideways.  Also as Acheybody said moving in the car bothers me as well as certain things on television.  Cieling fans are a big one with me too. I've never had a diagnosis as to what it is related to, not sure if it's related to Fibro or not.  Hope this goes away for you soon.

Libby, in one book I read, it talks about myofascial pain syndrome very often being tied to fibro, and how trigger points behind the eye can contribute to this.  Weird, huh?

Yes, I used to occasionally experience vertigo, and lately its been occuring much more frequently. It seems we also share another common denominator, as my doctor has decided to repeat an MRI, yes, looking at the possibility of my having MS as well, and yes, when the day (this past Friday) was finally over, I too cried long into the night, BUT I did have the where-with-all to tell my husband that no matter what, there will be NO padded rooms for this woman. Just remember, MS is quite difficult to diagnose, and while I've got two previous MRIs the doctor can use to help determine whether or not MS is present, I will offer you this...You're much stronger than you know right now, and your husband has no intention of putting you "on display" in a padded room. Crying makes room for clarity. And if you're going to fall, have him cover you in bubble wrap; lots and lots of bubble wrap. Keep me up to date, will you.

Hugging you in my heart,

I have frequent vertigo, I was diagnosed with fibro in 2008. They've done two brain MRIs on me, to see if I have MS, but the MRIs have been clean. However, I was just diagnosed 6 months ago with Lyme disease too. Lyme disease is one common trigger of fibromyalgia, which I didn't know until recently, and Lyme disease and some of the co-infections can cause neurological symptoms such as vertigo.

I have so many different diagnoses that it's really difficult for me to disentangle all of my symptoms now and say for certain that "this one is caused by lupus" and "that one is due to fibro". It's all too complicated.

I am really wandering about lyme, cause it seems that everything fits... but tests came back negative, so doc wont pursue it any farther. Vertigo was so awful last night that when i finally got to sleep at 1 am i awoke 45 minutes later throwin up and spinning!
Bubble wrap....... that is funny! I am going to tell him that. He is so good to me... it makes me sad sometimes that i cant do more for him. I did buy him a motorcycle though so when he has free time he enjoys going for rides.
I have a Dr appt with gen practitioner today then neuro on wednesday so we shall see if one of them will actually try to figure cause of such extreme and sudden vertigo.
Fibromyalgia, abnormal ANA, Complete hysterectomy, GERD, high blood pressure, sure there is more but fibrofog is blocking it out!

Has any doctor ruled out an inner ear disorder?  I have Meniere's disease, which you can Google if you want to know the symptoms.  Vertigo is the main symptom and it comes and goes.  There are a few other people on this forum that have it also.

Reach out and touch someone.  If they don't touch you back it's because you still  have brownie batter on your face.
