Welcome to Neurotalk!
"anyone else have the vertigo/ balance symptoms? Do they go away?"
Yes. I've suffered through extreme vertigo. Felt like I was drunk. No nausea, just vertical (up and down) vertigo. It lasted 3 + weeks the first time I had it very bad, and then resolved. I had it a second time for 2 + weeks, then it resolved. Most recently, I began experiencing vertigo/dizziness again, but it didn't last as long, and wasn't as severe, as the first 2 encounters.
I have sensory balance trouble. My left leg feels like it's buckling under me by times. At the height of the current relapse (started in September, or earlier... I could have been ignoring symptoms, I'm just too stubborn!) I was dreadfully off balance, feeling like I was falling over, dizzy when slammed quick by this left side sensory balance issue.
The good news: I wasn't found to have mobility issues, or spasticity. That was a relief! While the balance is sensory in my case, it is still a big problem if I have another flare of it. It's for the most part gone now, although I still have times when I reach for a plate in my kitchen cupboard with my left hand, and bam, I'm hit with that leg falling out from under me sensation.
Whether symptoms stick around or go into remission completely depends on each individual. MS'ers are like snowflakes, none of us are identical with our diseases.
I hope you enjoy the forum and find lots of information here.
