@connie 72. I've fallen several times recently, but only during blackouts. However, like you, Connie, I began swaying backwards or sideways a few months ago and having to grab onto doorways, furniture or my walker to save myself from falling. Since a heart attack in July, I've got 8 or 9 new medications so my doctor thinks that may be the cause. However, I have so many other complex health conditions, who knows? Lol. I'm just at the point of accepting everything as it comes, and telling myself " it is what it is". I certainly don't want any more medications to try to control this new problem. I'm very aware of the danger involved and remain cautious and alert, always. Good luck to you in your struggle to remain vertical! Warm regards, Laurie.
