I fell once last month, and broke my toe.
Then, yesterday morning, my knees buckled under me, and I started to fall, but caught myself on the bed, walked a few steps, the same thing happened, and I caught myself again.
It's always the same; it's when I get out of bed in the early a.m. to go to the bathroom.
I very rarely take pain meds, but the falls may have coincided; I'm not really certain. On Saturday night, I did take a little sliver of Tylenol with codeine, but I took less than a quarter.
Don't remember if I had taken anything the night before the broken toe episode.
I fell getting out of bed years ago, no pain meds the night before.
Yesterday (Sunday), after I got out of bed the second time, I was fine, had people over to my house, and even danced a little, so it doesn't really make sense.
I do have balance issue, but that doesn't seem to be the problem, bc the legs buckling under me happens out of nowhere.
