I hope you are recuperating form your fall. Very good to know you have no broken bones, the bruising and soreness is bad enough. No clue what caused the fall either. Has your oxygen sats been checked lately? I had to do a 24 hour test a few weeks ago, I average 89 without oxygen. Thats much better than where I was almost 3 yrs ago. The test had to be done w/o oxygen for 24 hours, I was not real thrilled over that.
Before being put on oxygen I was falling every time I turned around it seemed like. Mine was more like fainting and once that hit there was no stopping it.How I kept from breaking a bone is beyond me, most of my falls took place on tile floors and a wood flooring here in the house. A couple of times I went head first down the stairs.
I was wtihout my oxygen last night and had been for a spell during the day, I was outside and did not want to lug the portable one around. Well, i ended up falling and hit my bookshelf, i now have a nice knot on my forehead and bruised up an arm and ribs. Guess thats what I get for not wearing it lol.
Take care of yourself.
