How Long Do Episodes Of Vertigo Last Usually

i was diagnosed 6 months ago withh MS, i thought i was responding well to copaxone(my right sided weakness and numbness was much better, then 1 week ago i awoke to find objects moving and bobbing across acround (I had been very , very stressed at work in the previous week). It's very frightening, I have to limit my driving, I'm wondering if I will be able to continue working as it's difficult to read. does vertigo improve? how long usually before there is improvement?

Hi and welcome to Multiple Sclerosis Central. There's lots of folks here with a variety of experiences. But I don't personally have experience with vertigo.

Some previous posts in the community regarding vertigo:

Dr. Gross - Vertigo and Eye Movements in Multiple Sclerosis

Mandy - It's Not Hitchcock's Vertigo: Vertigo Symptoms and Treatment

Definitely read Mandy's post - lots of great information there. And it's good to hear that Copaxone is working well for you. I hope that you come back to let us know how you're doing. Lots of support here.
