I've been in bed for a month cause I've been off balance and no dr knows what's wrong. Walking gives me anxiety. Would lying around linger imbalance?

Exactly 1 month?: Did you start to feel "off balance" before or after you became bedbound? Lying in bed excessively will cause deconditioning to occur in several bodily systems including the vestibular or "balance system" so the longer it takes to figure this out the worse your equilibrium could become. Have you seen a neurologist? Are you anxious walking due to fear of falling or passing out? ...Read more

A gait problem: It sounds like you might be in-toeing/and or pronating. It has nothing to do with the width of your foot, but the angle of your gait. You might also have an internal rotation of your hit position which is something from birth. At your age, you probably need some sort of prescription insole that will help alter your gait. ...Read more

If a child is not walking at 14 months, should it be worrisome, and what may be the cause?

If a child is not walking at 14 months, should it be worrisome, and what may be the cause?

I'd watch for now: I use 15 m as my outer limit for the skill of independent walking. This assumes that a 14 m kid is pulling up & crusing on furnature.If neither are present I would procede with a developmental evaluation at a child study center. By definition a small percentage of normal kids don't walk untill 15 m, kids with emerguing developmental pbs from a variety of reasons will be evident at this point. ...Read more

What can cause falls when there's no snow outside and you're walking and all of a sudden you fall and didn't see anything to trip over? Is it medical?

Falls: Although unexplained falling may have a neurologic or orthopedic basis, if you have no other obvious symptoms or problems like lightheaded episodes, vertigo attacks or knee joint instability, in my opinion it's unlikely that a neurological or general physical examination will shed any light on your falling. However, if you note lingering unsteadiness or confused feeling after falling get examined. ...Read more

My Boyfriend is coughing and hacking the second we walk through our front door yet it stops if we leave what might cause this and we have a cat n dog?

Allergy: More people are allergic to cats then dogs. This does not mean that it is necessarily the animals. It could be other allergens. Cheap man's test. Don't have him enter the room and bring your cat to him and see what he does. Then do the same for the dog. If neither causes the symptoms it's not the animals and keep looking. If he gets the response then u have to choose between your BF or Pet ;) ...Read more
