Forgive me, I am not diagnosed, but I would like to hear what your presenting symptoms were.
 
I am struggling with Vertigo, and am very concerned. I feel not so much that the world is spinning, but more like the floor is uneven. This has caused me so much anxiety that I can't even sleep or eat.
 
What were your symptoms?...Just a note, I experienced this exact symptom 15 years ago and it went away after a year. I have read that MS symptoms lie dormant for years.
 
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Timid,
 
Welcome to the board.  My presenting symptom was vertigo.  It got so bad over a course of three weeks that I was wall walking and eventually admitted to the hospital.  MS can go into spontaneous remission for years.  That is part of the reason it is so hard to diagnose.  You should go see a neurologist, preferrably an MS specialist. 
 
Good luck. Here is a website that has lots of information about the diagnostic process for MS.  Keep us posted.
