I have an acustic neroma, Could this be an episode from the MS ?

Hi I have an acustic neroma 3 days ago I started to have bad dizzy spells the room spins around and still spins when I try to walk when I lay down the same thing it never goes away. I was wondering if this happens when you have this kind of tumor. I have had many MRI's They found it in 2002 august I also have had optic nerites. I'm not sure how to spell that . The doctor ' would not comfirm having MS .that is when they found the tumor on the MRI. Could this be an episode from the MS ? I am a 58 year old female.

Hi... Acoustic neuroma is a benign tumour that is seen at a region on the brain which is closed to the nerve of the ear. Because of the pressure on this nerve by the tumour you can have symptoms similar to yours like vertigo - the spining senation. You can also have symptoms like heasring difficulties. So your symptoms are more due to acoustic neuroma and not multiple sclerosis...
