Hello everyone ;-)
I have woken up this mornng, got out of bed and felt like I have been on the sauce!
My head feel heavy, my eyes seem to take a bit longer to focus and i feel really off balance when I walk. I am fine sittng but as soon as I get up, off it goes. I joke, but actually it feels horrible. I have to work in a bit and I am a bit worried! Is this an MS symptom? Xx
Help I feel drunk!.. And not in a good way!
Hello everyone ;-)
Hope your feeling better soon
Yes this is definately a symptom, on a bad day I sway around like a drunk without the drink. It is not a good feeling though is it? I hope it eases up for you during your work day. But be reassured it is a symptom and can just pop up out of the blue. If I have several days of overdoing things it is more likely to happen, don't know why it's just my observstion of it.
I concur with Sarah, it's definitely MS related and pops up out of the blue.
The only thing I can do is sit quietly with my head rested on the back of the sofa. No quick movements or glancing around or I feel as though I could hurl. I find that I also feel very disconnected from everything - holding a conversation is very difficult and concentrating on TV almost impossible. Then like magic it goes away and I'm back to "normal"
I had this problem and also occassional slurry speach which did make me seem properly drunk! I wouldn't advise having a drink though - i did and practically rolled home with the dodgy balance. It passed after a few weeks. Take care x
i can sympathise with you hope your feeling better soon i was going to spaeak to my ms nurse about it but obviously its easter week,
i get this feeling that i sway to one side have to move my head different to talk to people,
something else i get it when looking at my key board it seems to be raised in the middle i know its probably no help to you but it seems a lot of people get these effects x
It's a hazard. I am often interested how people worry in case others percieve that they are drunk.
I think, if it's a good day, have a drink.
If it's a bad day, have a drink.
