My husband cannot stand on his toes and his gait is effected. He is very slow and shuffles forward and last night both knees collapsed and he couldn't get up...scary. (This after he just got specially fit knee braces for $200) Fortunately he has no pain. Has had mri of back, (showing minimal unchanged stenosis), and head. Today he is getting Mri of his neck. He feels unsteady and often has to hold on to a wall or other stationary object. We are very frustrated. any ideas?
