      Me three Pamela!  I’m an established Realtor for a living who walks thru all kinds of properties all day long.  From high rise condos to restaurants.  I feel like a bouncing ball!!  I’m told it’s due to hormone fluculations but it sure is challenging!!!!  This symptom is one of my biggest complaints.

      Do you notice yours is worse in enclosed rooms and smaller spaces...and dark rooms? My off balance feeling seems a little better outside or in bright, open spaces...so strange. Wonder if anyone else can relate.

      It depends.  If there’s a lot of action going on like in a busy restaurant, that makes it worse.  If more of a peaceful open space, I’m okay.  Smaller spaces can be bothersome.

    Not on a daily basis, but definitely have days of this and also of being so clumsy.

    Holy crap!! I'm going through this as we speak! Actually for the last 2 years!!   But, this past month really bad! In fact, I'm sitting here now having a panic attack because of it!!😪😪.  And my legs don't feel like my own legs!! Jelly legs I like to call it!  I feel I have to hold on to things to walk!!!!     You are not alone!!!💕🙏🙏

      Pam, do you have issues with your eyes?  Like do they feel tight and does it feel at times like your brain isn’t caught up with what your eyes are seeing.  This too throws my balance off and makes me feel panicky.  All of this is so strange.

      I feel exactly the same and it seems to effect my eyes too. Do you feel like your eyes are being pulled out their sockets ? Also this off balance feeling makes me feel I’m on a slow moving escalated then I feel nauseas. I’ve had this on and off since going into menopause three years ago but today’s not been a good, I went out for a walk at work to see if I’d feel better but no different. I’m trying to ignore it (who am I kidding) then I don’t get anxious. I can relate to all you ladies and it’s not in a good way I wish we were all writing positive stuff but this forum has helped me so much, we must support one another as doctors don’t appear to know what to do with us. I Keep on smiling and pretend everything’s ok but what I really want to do is hide in a cupboard and come out when it’s all over 😢??. Sending you all a comforting hug x
