Recently I have had some falls. The 1st one in January, fell down a flight of stairs for no reason just seemed sudden, have no idea what happened and again yesterday I was coming out of the Town Hall, walked out to walkways even to the ground, cement surface all even and the next thing I knew I was going down and I hit hard, felt nothing before I hit the surface. The Town Hall was next to a High School and this young man rushed over to help me up; and I thank the Lord he was there because I found it hard to get up. I'm 64 yrs. old, have some medical issue's but nothing that I can associate to this. I did have an eye issue where for no reason know the Visteral Gel in my right eye detached. I will let me medical doctor know that I fell again. I find this very confusing to me..

Hi misty

While people with MS can expierence falls I wouldn't start there in your case. Let your doctor know sooner rather than later and get a total review of current known conditions and meds you take for them .

If that does not reveal a likely cause then you and he/she should try to figure what specialist you need to see.
