Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms
One aspect that multiple sclerosis affects is the ability to balance properly. This may be momentary, or it may be more chronic, with a continued inability to maintain balance.
One test performed by neurologists is to ask the patient to stand still and tip their head back as far as they can. This lets the neurologist determine the patients ability to maintain their balance.
Why Balance Can Be Affected
Balance problems may be the result of direct damage to the 'balance center' of the brain, usually in the cerebellum.
Balance difficulties can also be the result of other multiple sclerosis related problems such as visual disturbances, vertigo, dizziness, loss of sensation, spasticity of the muscles or muscle weakness.
