Body Being Pulled to The Side When I Walk

Posted , 6 users are following.

ok Ladies this week a new sympton hits...As a matter of fact all other

symptons greatly reduced this week (except the bloating )and I've been actually able to get out more this week. But the new sympton thats bothering me now is when i walk my body is pulled to the side. At first it was pulled to the right side when this sympton started but today its the left side. I have had this problem before in June and it last for about 6 weeks until my chiroprator did this procedure and it went away. He said it could have been from an inner ear infection. At that time my allergy with my allergy just like i was dealing with allergy on last week. Now, i do sometimes get dizzy when i stand. It actually feels like the pulling is from the bloated stomach. When i press my stomach in while walking the pull doesnt happen. I dont know it could be my mind playing tricks that its not happening. But i am sure that my body is being pulled to one side when i go for a walk.

    Hey Mary, it's definitively NOT your mind!  As crazy as it sounds this is one of my biggest menopause challenges.  It truly limits one from shopping, walking, going to parties, weddings, etc.  Some women like us are more sensitive to the imbalancing of hormone fluctions commonly called "the roller coaster of hormones".   It's almost like a bouncing ball and pulls you when you're out in public trying to walk.  What's also horrible is that this is all you can focus on because it's SO uncomfortable.

    I represent high end real estate for a living and there are way too many days just walking thru a house or property is the most challenging thing ever.  We NEED this to stop!!!

    I'm so sorry you're going thru this too.  I'm thinking of you.  Jamie

    I remember walking sideways, and no matter how hard I tried to walk straight my body kept shifting to walk sideways. Even my honey would try to straighten me he would laugh. What I ended up doing was to just ignore it, an I'd ask him if I was still walking sideways, it may have lasted a year or two, but I didn't focus on it. It went away by itself.

    Menopause is something else isn't it? I didn't have this symptom, but my cousin did. She would be walking with her husband and all of a sudden she was bumping into him. A lot of women suffer from balance issues during this time. Menopause is so much more than hot flashes and mood swings, but that's all I ever heard about when a woman was going through "the change". I remember when I was younger I thought calling it "the change" was so silly, it makes it seem like it's not a normal part of a woman's life, call it what it is, menopause. When we start our menstrual cycle they don't call it "the period".  Rant over.smile

      You are so right Juanita. Menopause is so much more than hot flashes and mood swings, and guess what...I have no flashes. But I don't want to speak too soon because I have enough to deal with already. 😔
