 I am sometime nauseated but not feeling dizzy.  Is that common?
 
Also, I tried to do the heel to toe walk last night and I could not do it.  Will this be all the time or will I be able to do better some days and worse some days based on how I feel?
 
some days I feel weaker than others.  IS that normal?

Hey Amanda

Well all things seem to be different for all people, but generally speaking, yes, some days will be better than others. U may again be able to do the heel to toe walk and then again u may not ever be able to do that or at least do it well. I am trying to remember, have u been dx'd? The nausea can come with many things, but is not normally a symptom of ms directly. For example, u could find u'rself nauseated, but due to vertigo. When do u see the neuro again...is it two months?? Sorry, i am not one for a good memory! Take care friend. Write all this down for u'r doc and be sure to give him/her the info when u see or talk to them again. Try to relax as much as u can. This can all be overwhelming, but if u can busy u'rself daily then it'll go a little easier.

 Why do you think I can do the heal to toe walk much better in the morning?  Do you think it is because of resting and less fatigue in the morning and more fatigued and wore out in the evenings?

 

I have not set my neuro appointment yet.  I am scared that I will get the run around and that takes so much out of me with the frustration and stress of having someone do that to me and I feel like they don't believe me. 

Also, I want to get a journal (which I am picking up today) So I can record things and take it with me. I am very forgetful and want to make sure he has the whole picture before I go.

Thanks Rhonda for all your replies and help.  I appreciate it more than you will ever know!

Hey Amanda

Well u'r exactly correct on the heel to toe thing. In many cases with ms symptoms u'll find an increase after being tired. Fatigue can be so bad straight out of bed, but give u'rself even a little workout and it's ten fold! I used to find that i'd overexert and have those heavy, jello legs sooo much worse. Also, i almost never had any trembling until i was really tired. Weird, but it's that u'r muscles can only hold out for so long without the proper messages. U just push and push them and they give out sooner than they used to...which can be MUCH sooner than u'd think.

Please do try to go ahead with that appt soon. Yes, u may get the run around, but u also may find a great doc willing to listen to u. Get that journal and keep track of things. Take a short list of 'just the facts ma'am' to the doc and let him ask u for the details so u don't give him the impression of being too focused on being sick too. U don't want that, but, if u never see the neuro u will never get the chance to make him/her listen to u. Take care and get on the ball with that appt friend.
