    Hi Robert,

    Wow, you have lived with MS for many years and it sounds like the disease has been relatively quiet for you.  That's fantastic. 


    At the age of 78, my guess is that there would be many more causes of your fatigue and lack of balance than MS.  Talk to your doctor about your concerns.  It seems unlike that these symptoms are long-term MS effects.  But I am not a medical professional and do have medical advice to give.


    Good luck.
