In brief: Walking difficulties

It is important to share issues with your physician.
Walking difficulties can be a herald of something more serious. Early diagnosis and treatment may be in your best interest.

In brief: You should discuss

Problems with walking can be due to many different causes--the bones or joints, the blood circulation that brings oxygen to the legs, heart or lung disease, or nervous system conditions that affect balance.
You should talk to your doctor about walking because it is great exercise. Find out why you are having problems to see what can be done to help you.
