Does Any Experience Motion Sickness, Dizziness And With It An Overall Feeling Of Being Off Balance On A Regular Basis?

Does Any Experience Motion Sickness, Dizziness And With It An Overall Feeling Of Being Off Balance On A Regular Basis?

Omg! I'm very motion sick! I find my myself getting motion sick more often than not. It happens at different times, but when it does I'm miserable and off balance. I'm not sure if I'm off balance because I'm motion sick or motion sick because I'm off balance?? During times like these I can not deal with any extra sensory stimuli. I'm making myself worse writing this but I just need/want to know if anyone else with Fibromyalgia experiences this.

Hi Texas girl
I have had similar symptoms before myself it could be from medication or it could be something entirely different so if you are very new to the symptoms please write everything down like where & when the pain occurs & most importantly write down how the pain has impacted your normal living & working life for further reference ok good luck & keep us posted

I get very dizzy , trouble with my balance suddenly & without any other causes that I can find contributing as I am not on any meds.I feel this is just another side effect to this illness because it involves the brain....if you research MS than you will see how similar our symptoms are those patients have the dizziness,muscle pain,nerve pain etc ...since MS involves the brain as well...to me they are highly related in their origin of brain/spinal complex causing our difficulties on so many levels.But for Fibro sufferers we do not get the degenerative disease that goes along with MS..The lightheadness/dizzy spells are difficult to treat as they can happen anywhere/anytime...I try to watch my sugar/diet and make sure I am not overdoing things..having as much a routine as possible is helpful and I know lack of sleep makes it worse as far the dizzy spells..I put lavender oil on a cloth over my forehead while laying down and this helps with relaxing.Good luck.

Yes. I get terrible vertigo, and everything goes spinning around me. It often comes together with the pain. There are exercises you can do for it. It is important to know if it's lightheadedness or vertigo to treat.
