I’m oldish (approaching 60), and I’ve been falling a lot, lately. Particularly on stairs. I have to hold onto the handrail at all times, which bothers me, because they’re filthy. Rushing for the MRT in Xindian tonight, I fell over and grazed one of my knees, quite severely. Luckily, the conductor was a kind fellow and waited for me to drag my broken carcass off the floor before disembarking.
My legs seem to have become really weak. I’m a small bloke, but have always been relatively strong for my size.
I had a disk removed in my spine 20 years ago, which has rendered my right leg partially paralysed. I can’t bend the toes in that leg.
It hasn’t bothered me too much up to now, but the falling-over is vexing me.
Neurologists just look at me like I’m a wildling.
I fall over all the time, even when when I’m sober.
Any ideas, learned friends?
