One of the earliest symptoms that appeared before my multiple sclerosis (MS) diagnosis was imbalance. I remember turning my head to look at something and feeling slightly off-balance. I didn’t think much of it at the time, but that wobbly sensation gradually increased through the years.

Occasionally, I would bump into walls and nearly fall, appearing drunk, and clumsy. I knew something was off, but I wasn’t sure what was causing my balance problems.

The article, “Causes of balance and walking problems,” from the Multiple Sclerosis Society U.K., examines why MS patients may experience issues with their balance. It stresses how many body parts need to work together in order to have “good balance.”

According to the article, our brains have difficulty relaying the information they receive when MS is present. The connection can be faulty due to the damage caused by MS. Therefore, it affects how the brain shares information and causes imbalance.  Read on. 

Note: Note: We offer specialist MS Physiotherapy, Pilates, Yoga and Tai Chi at BMSTC which can help with imbalance.  For more click here.
