Group Description

MdDS is typically diagnosed when a person reports a persistent rocking feeling (though they are not necessarily rocking). This USUALLY follows a cruise or other motion experience. Because most vestibular testing proves to be negative, doctors may be baffled as they attempt to diagnose this rare neurological syndrome. Many doctors believe MdDS occurs when your brain did not return to a normal sense of balance after adapting to a motion experience. A major diagnostic indicator is that most of us feel BETTER while driving or riding in a car or while in passive motion.

If you suspect you have MdDS, sign up for free membership and review or search the thousands of messages from those who suffer from MdDS (sponsored by the MdDS Balance Disorder Foundation.) Here, you will find caring people who understand what it's like to live with this rare disorder. This site requires that you subscribe by indicating why you believe you have MdDS.
