    Hi, Debbie...Yes, I walk like a drunken sailor at times.  The pain is bad, but the fatigue  is even worse...There are times when I can't do anything except lie in bed and stare at the ceiling...I am also OCD....My balance is all off, and makes it so much easier to fall while walking.....hope you feel better soon.

      I feel so embarrassed at times to...

    Hi debbie1966 fibro can cause balance problems. It happens to me alot where I keep going over to my left side, I have to keep straightening my self, it does feel like your being to pulled to one side. its always my left never my right. my left side is my weakest side. I have also fallen in the past due to balnce issues. it does make you look as if your drunk. if its worrying you see or speak to your gp.take care gentle hug x
