I was diagnosed in 1997 and now I fall over more frequently than ever. The worst falls come (so obviously) when I'm not expecting one; it feels as though my shoelaces have been tied together, and down I go.
I tried to get handrails installed in my (council) flat but the plasterboard walls wouldn't take it, so I just have to be extra careful and support myself with doorways, furniture, etc until I am found another place.
In the meantime - should I look for a cycle helmet to wear around the flat? I'm serious, because once I go down then I really fall heavily, into doors, corners, cookers, anything hard and angular. What have others done at this stage?
