    Same problem here too, now with dizziness sometimes attached. Often go out without my walking stick and have actually fallen over in the street a couple of times over the years. Most embarrassing as no-one has ever offered to help me; they probably think I'm drunk.

    Hiya Chris, et al

    I believe that CS can cause vascular problems,(dizzy spells, loss of balance) also myelopathy, which is secondary to CS. I have problems most days with my balance, however since taking Amytrilityne, the episodes have gotten less.

    Could I ask you guys if you have had your blood pressure checked recently? I never had problems with my BP until I started with CS.
