Loss of coordination: The loss of coordination is itself a symptom, and sometimes a sign. There are many ways coordination can be impaired, from inner ear problems to brain stem strokes, to acute drug toxicity (including alcohol). More information is needed. I suggest you discuss the problem with your doctor or a neurologist. If you are abruptly, severely impaired, i suggest going to to an emergency department.

A reason 2 see a Dr: I don't mean to be trite, but your symptoms sound significant enough that you should see a doctor. Loss of coordination could be due to some type of neurologic problem. You could be anemic, your thyroid could be abnormal. Too many items to list. Do yourself a favor and see a physician.
