Hello Everyone....It has been sometime since I have posted with a problem.
My problem is my balance. My balance is very bad and getting worse.
First...I must explain that my balance issues are NOT related to my ears as most are.
I have no dizzieness, never light headed, my head never "swims"...no, never anything like that. Neither does my BP drop when getting up that could cause me to be off balance.
When inside I must hold on to furniture or place my hand on a wall to keep from falling. Outside I always use a quad cain to keep my balance. I have fell often, cracked ribs and banged myself up a lot.
When I ask my Doctor about this problem he just shrugs his shoulders.
Does anyone else have this problem and do you know what causes it? Most people with balance problems have inner ear problems. I do not.
I do suffer with chronic pain in my feet and legs but my pain pump is helping with that.
I do have a spinal fusion at L4&L5. Could the fusion at that area of my spine be causing me to be off balance like this?
I would so apprecite any advice you may be abie to give.
