    Post Falling down a lot

    Lately, I've been falling down a lot and hurting myself. I trip over nothing and get a fuzzy feeling in my head, also feel like I've missed something, confused. Is this inner ear or something else. The past week I have fallen down 4 times. A little bruised, but still kicking! I am 51 and have allergies,arrythmia and am being treated for a PE(bloodclot)I developed in Jan.2003.I'm on Coumadin,Clarinex,Prozac,Depakote,Phener gan,Kadian,Mialcin and Astelin. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You need to see the doc to find out what is going on. Frequent falls at your age is not normal so see the doc and get checked out.

    Yes, you definitely need to see your doctor about falling. The meds you're taking could also have something to do with it.

    Thank you for your quick response. I am scheduled to see the dr. next week, so hopefully something will be done. Any guesses as to why this is happening now? I've been on these meds for about 3 months or more. I did trip over my cats a month ago and hit the wall hard, but did not black out just bruised shoulder,ribs and a slight knock on the head.

    It could be caused from pressure on the 8th cranial nerve the vestibulochonclear nerve. It happened to my brother for a mounth he is 25 years old really healthy. He had really bad vertigo he could barley walk, he was in the hospital for a week and had every kind of test from brain tumors to spinal taps. They released him because they were clueless. He went home and eventually in went away in three weeks. But for that month he was so scared he was going to be like that forever. It was like he was really drunk but he hadn't had a drink. I hope this helps good luck.
