India Posted October 12, 2007 Report Share Posted October 12, 2007 Aloha all,Woke up last night with a "new" symptom. Felt o.k. when woke up but had to get up to use the bathroom. When I got up I felt like all the balance had gone on the left hand side: I was staggering to the left. I've had this before when I woke up (generalized lack of balance, not one side) and it seemed to be a symptom of getting up too quickly and I shook it off very fast. This time, however, I could not shake it off. I could balance on my right leg but not my left. The curious thing was, I did not feel dizzy, just couldn't balance myself.This morning the balance issue is not so bad but I feel so dizzy that I did not go to work--very unusual for me.My question is, is it usual to get balance problems like this without feeling dizzy or is this something else?I was diagnosed with POTS about three years ago, also have hyper adrenergic excess. I am currently taking .1mg of florinef, 25mg of atenolol, clonazepam, and birth control pills. I have also recently finally got my weight down into what the NIH defines as a "healthy range" aka the BMI charts (5 foot 6 and 140lbs). Lost about 16;bs in the last two and a half months. Don't know whether any of this is relevant, but hoping for some insight from fellow survivors!India Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
