Most likely: With the flu you tend to get nausea, diarrhea and anorexia. This all leads to dehydration with resultant unsteadiness with standing. Keep drinking fluid!

It's possible but: Those are not the usual presenting symptoms.Frequent falling could be from dehydration, low blood pressure, anemia etc.Go to an urgent care or see ur dr right away. Take care!
