In the last couple of weeks i have some debilitating episodes where it feels like the room is spinning and i've had to lean on the nearest object, ususally a wall, until it passes.
Yesterday however i had just got out of a friend's car and we were walking down to a supermarket when my legs started losing balance and then i had the sense of everything spinning around my head. Leaning on a wall was not enough. I had to also grab on to a post and couldn't let go.
I didn't get nausea or wanted to be sick but felt very scared. My mate suggested walking back to the car but i couldn't move so he went and got the car. After feeling my way around the car and sitting down for 10 mins i was okay.
I will be visiting my doctor next week but wonder what on earth is causing this? I do get a lot of headaches but this is partially a problem with my nervous system and muscle problems plus i am still getting side effects from taking Gabapentin - dose increased in early June to 1200mg.
The episodes i've had in the past couple of weeks have been minor compared to yesterday's. It makes me scared to go out.
Any ideas would be gratefully received.
