    leak weakness?

    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?

    With love, with patience and with faith, we'll make our way.

    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.
