Off Balance Feelings

Postby Tel1 » Mon Sep 09, 2013 7:58 pm

Hi All

I forgot to mention the other day about this. I have been experiencing as though I am going to fall backwards especially when I am
out shopping or in the post office.. I do get it occasionally indoors, but it just seems more so when I am out. I thought to myself, surely this can't be another symptom to Fibro, but I have read that is can be for some people, suffice to say I am certainly getting it and
this is worrying me, because I just think, it must be something else that is wrong not just to do with Fibro?? :yikes:

One way I am describe who I feel, is that, imagine you were swimming and then you can't touch the bottom of the pool and kind of balance panic sets in.. that is kind of how it is.... :crazy: I have had this since about April this year....naturally I was thinking to
myself. it's only the Fibro it's only the Fibro, stop worrying, but of course when us Fibro people seem to have endless symptoms and
new experienced< I thought to myself I must ask you guys if any of you get this? :scream-1:

I've had major balance problems from the start of symptoms appearing. Mine have been attributed to headaches/migraines with a nod to FM adding to their intensity.

Whilst it could be FM that is mixing things up to make you feel like this, there is just as much a chance that it could be due to something else as well.

Might be necessary for a trip to the docs to try and find out the cause :-? :-? :-? :-? :-?

As flup said a trip to your GP as a precaution as IMO it doesnt sound like fibro as the balance problems in FM tend to be from the stiffness or weakness in legs or even the dizziness from fatigue/tension head.

This possibly sounds more like a vertigo were you feel the sensation of falling down like the way we feel after going up and down a lift.

May be worth getting your blood pressure checked too. I often feel like that & we have a BP machine at home as hubbie has high blood pressure. When I feel like that you can guarantee my BP is below 90/60

Thank guys for the response :-D My BP is usually higher than being low, so maybe it is that? :yikes:

I have mentioned this to the rheumatologist and the neurologist and they have told me that I have nothing
neurologically wrong with me!! but then I said I thought Fibro was a neurological thing?? then silence:))
They said in the letters to me and the GP that they can say in *very* strong terms that there is nothing
wrong with my brain etc.... I just hope they are right :yikes:
I will just have to see if I keep getting it ( not that I want it:)) and go from there.... something else to *worry*
about eh :cry:

Thanks to all..

You can pick up a cheap BP monitor in Lloyds pharmacy
