I can not sit, stand or walk because of severe back pain. The longer I sit or stand,the more I sit or stand the more it hurts. Sorry, I have never had a brain surgery.Yes, I have seen neurosurgeon.They just won't help.I have a right leg that just seems to turn off sometimes.. This causes me to fall.

Colleen’s suggestion of speaking with a social worker could be a good first step for getting help. Call your towns Area Agency on Aging. Ask how you can connect with a social worker. Many doctor’s offices also have social workers.
I understand that you cant go anywhere and barely move about the house. Who helps you with groceries and meal preparation and keeping your space clean?
