Hello everyone,

I realize no one can diagnose MS here but hopefully can offer me some much needed insight :)

About a month ago, I started to have bad dizziness to the point where it felt like vertigo and after it persisted a week, I went to doc. He said I had a little fluid in my ear and a sinus infection and I was presrcribed antibiotics. After several days I was still dizzy but attempted other things such as epley maneuver and seeing my chiro for the neck tension.

I have been on xanax only at night now for about 2 weeks and still have pins and needles in random areas.
