Does anyone else balance problems and always feel like you just got off a ride? I have very bad balance problems with heaviness in the right side of head and falling to my left.

Hello @marynoel6 and welcome to Connect. If you don't mind sharing, have you been diagnosed with a blood disorder that you think may be contributing to your balance issue?
I never thought of that. A doctor never mentioned that that to me .I’ve had blood test taken

@marynoel6, Unfortunately, I am not a medical professional and cannot offer medical advice. However, I was asking because you posted your question in the Blood Cancers & Disorders group. I went ahead and moved your discussion to the Ear, Eyes, Nose & Throat group where the moderator @jamienolson will help Connect you with members who may be experiencing similar symptoms as you.
Hello @marynoel6! Have you been tested for balance issues? or had any kind of balance rehab?
There are lots of reasons for balance issues and a lot of treatments available. Have you consulted a neurologist? If an ENT doctor was not able to find the cause of your balance difficulties a neurologist might be the next step.
I had numerous balance tests and then something called Vestibular Therapy. It was helpful, especially after treatment began for a neurological disorder.
I hope you find the root cause for your problem. I look forward to hearing from you again.
