Falls - have you experienced this?

Hi, I am in my seventies and over the last three years, I have had a series of falls.

I have had an MRI but no problem and also tested for neuropathy but not that either.

If anyone else has similar symptoms please respond.

Hi Nan
I too have had a series of falls and am also in my 70s. I am sure my problem is caused by a blocked sinus. I too have had an MRI and seen a neurologist. My Niece tells me it is important to do core exercises and I am persevering.
I wish you well

Hi Nan,

Hope you’re feeling better.

This may not help but my mother and her sister both had tinnitus which effected their balance. Mom had some falls later in life. I have vertigo and sometimes the room seems to rotate and I have to grab something in case I fall! :0

Hope this helps. Good luck.
