I lost my balance
mrbogey58 posted:
Fell on table at home, my left side where I made contact is very painful, it hurt when I laugh, sneeze, avoided my primary Dr. at first but it's been 3 days, the pain persist so got an appointment today. Did I wait too long"ouch"?
ctbeth responded:
No one knows if you've waited too long.

I hope that your MD visit was helpful.
mrbogey58 replied to ctbeth's response:
Don't know yet, got a body wrap around my ribs, pain still exist however? taking otc meds for pain?
An_251837 replied to mrbogey58's response:
The wise thing to do would be to see your doctor and ask him/her these questions. You can not be diagnosed, treated or given accurate medical advice over an internet message board.
annette030 responded:
No, of course not. Please do ask him about the balance issue. This is an issue I will discuss with my own doctor when I see her in Jan. I have had balance issues for some time, fallen twice. It is past time for me to get answers about this.

Take care, Annette
