    Why are you falling? Are you able to lift your feet properly or do you drag them? Do your ankles just "give out" and you fall? I can do this on steps.

    Maybe we can find a reason and a way to keep you safe......

    Dear Linda,
    Sorry to hear you injured yourself. I used to fall a lot, until I was told bt my Dr. that it was because of exreme fatigue. Now, I hardly ever fall. That is because I rest a lot and try not to get stressed or over fatigued.

    I realized that I was not lifting my feet high enough ,due to fatigue, and my awareness was diminished, so they would catch on the slightest unevenness in the ground. I know everyone cannot just rest, but that might be what it takes. I hope this helps.
