I CAN'T STOP FALLING!!!! I was diagnosed with lupus in 2003 when I was 19 years old. At first I was pumped full of steroids, but eventually I stopped. In 2005 my body decided to go bonkers I spent 5 months in the hospital. Long story short, because of the long hospitalization with me being immobilized, I suffered severe atrophy. For 8 years I have been trying regain my full balance and it seems impossible.I've been in and out of therapy with minimal results. I recently started yoga but I believe that there is more or something that is affecting my. I was researching some of my medications and Depakote (Divalproex) has a side effect relating to my issue with staying upright. Has anyone experienced this or have any comments and or suggestions that can help me?
