Ok, lately I've been having some issues. i don't know if it's related or not. I've fallen a couple of times now because my leg doesn't pick up as high or at all sometimes as I think I've lifted it. I've felt shaky in my legs here lately like they are weak but I'm not doing anything differently than I normally do. Does anyone else do this?

Are you on high dose steroids? I had that problem when I was on high dose steroids, it made my leg muscles so weak I had to crawl up stairs!!!

I was on prednisone for a while but i am currenlty not taking anything like that. I've fallen a couple times in the last few months because my leg doesn't pick up like I think i'm picking it up (if that makes sense). It's new and I just didn't know.
