I just fell down

And twisted my back when I landed. I feel like an idiot. I lose my balance all the time and it’s so frustrating. Oh well. At least I’m ok.

I’m glad you are ok! Happens to me more frequently as I’m aging. It’s the getting back up that is the problem!

Thanks @Bowens @TheCanuk

@rogueone , I get dizzy spells. I’m not sure why but they make me unable to do anything when they’re happening. But I’m ok. I’m supposed to get a brain scan but I’m opting out. They’re too expensive. But it’s all good because I’m not injured. Just tweaked my back a bit

Is there any clue to what is causing the dizzzy spells @ZmaGal ? Might be worth the investment but hearing the expense! Makes it hard.It’s not a small siezure?

I highly recommend you get the scan @ZmaGal . My sister wouldn’t listen to her doctor and refused to get her scans and now her brain tumor is inoperable. Ifhe had gone in earlier it might have been operable.

It’s worth the money. It’s better to be poor than dead.

The dr didn’t suggest seizures. I know I get brain lesions from an unknown cause. I suppose it could be that

Glad to hear that you are okay. My therapist insisted I get a cane after I fell. It helps a lot.

Thanks @roxanna

I used to need a 4 pronged cane when I had brain lesions. Some drs say I had a stroke some say it was autoimmune. Who knows for sure?

Mine is a wooden cane for like $13 from the drug store. It doesn’t have four prongs though.

Glad that you’re ok. I would tell the Dr as it could be many things, I get dizzy when my blood pressure is low.

Thanks @Aziz . The dr knows :slight_smile:

This happened when I accidently took my bp meds twice. I was holding the walls when walking to not fall.

I’ve checked my BP while dizzy. It was normal. It also doesn’t happen when I change positions.
