No one knows if you've waited too long.

I hope that your MD visit was helpful.

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.

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
