Oh my goodness, how scary! I would definitely call your dotor and see what s/he says.

I would call and make an appointment to get checked out.  Couldn’t you make an appointment with a doctor that’s closer by?

You don’t know why you fell?

 

I’ve fallen a few times in a week before, but it’s always been because of the shoes I was wearing… I’ve never ever fallen and not known why.

 I would absolutely talk to a doctor ASAP

@forever:  If you don’t know WHY… then you definitely need to get checked out (and sooner rather than later)

As for finding a Doctor, it might help us if you let us know as a minimum what Country* you are in… as Medical Services (and how to access them) differ around the globe.

*Province or State Info might also prove useful.

You could have something as simple as an inner ear infection causing you to be off balance. 

So get checked out. Especially if there is NO reason why you fell. Like, tripping or anything or knee giving out. If its a balance issue go see the doc.

I agree that if you are unsure of why you’ve been falling then you need to take a trip to the doctor.  That’s some worrisome stuff right there.  I hope everything is a-okay though!

Maybe your old doctor could give you a referral for someone in your area? I definitely think you should call him, tell him your situation, and see what advice he has for you. Even if he doesn’t know anyone personally in your new area he should be able to tell you how to start looking for one in your area.

Please consult a professional ASAP. Depending on what the issue is, driving might be dangerous.

@forever:  Do you mean you don’t remember the moments before falling or simply that you fall and don’t know what tripped you?

@forever:  Hmmm… can you go to some sort of a walk-in clinic and have it checked out? I am assuming you’re in the States… here in Canada we have lots of walk-in clinics where you just see whichever doctor is on shift. You might want to do that. And be careful!

If you don’t know how/why you fell then definitely see a doctor. You might want to find a new one if you’re 6 hours away from your current doctor. I know it’s a pain but it might be necessary

Do you remember how you fell or do you think you blacked out? Had a seizure?
