The balance issues are not really bigjust that I know they are there. When I stand up too quicklyI tend to lose my balance a littlenot enough to fall overbut enough to know that there is an issue. I noticed when I put my shoes or socks onI either have to sit down or run the risk of losing my balance a little. I have not fallen yetbut I have used the bed to greak a would-be fall. I don't think the balance issues are newjust areas that I have noticed only recently. Overall I walk great and drive without incident...I just notice little things now and then. The weaknessthe jumpiness in the eyesthe balance issues; they are not new thingsjust things I have been more aware of lately.
