For the last three months (approx) when walking I have had a feeling that I am falling to the right. It seems to be a little more pronounced when walking certain routes (perhaps certain turns of movements make it worse?) I am late 20's and the only significant recent medical history is sinus surgery. I haven't fallen over, but on occasion I feel that I automatically move to the left to counter the falling feeling. I feel fine in any other situation (standing, sitting, driving) just affected with walking. Any thoughts on causes of this type of symptomology? Thanks!

  • You can tell if you have problem with your balance by just try to stand for 30 s with your eyes closed. If the sensation only exist when you are walking, it could be something with your eyes.A sensation of falling can come from many things, such as low blood pressure, an increased pressure in your innner ear, such as an ear infection, or from the brain.A dr should at least check your balance, take a blood sample for infection, and possibly a CT just to rule out the most alarming possibilities.
