Welcome to our forum NanaJ. I was diagnosed with Lupus a couple of years before my Sjogren's diagnosis. I had balance problems while searching for a diagnosis (Lupus) and continue to have balance problems. I fell in my living room Tuesday and that's not unusual. Oddly though, I don't have vertigo. My most common cause of falling is if I turn suddenly. One day I had my two exotic silky guinea pigs in their pen on the floor, turned suddenly and fell with my right hand landing directly on Elvis. He died two days later. My falls don't commonly end in first degree pig slaughter. I just usually end up with lots of bruises.
I had vertigo for several weeks, many years ago and it was a bear. It sounds like Lynnwood found something that helped. I hope NanaJ and Margarita find help soon! Love, Butterflake
