Off Balance, Swaying, or Falling to the Side Sensation

Most of us, are very familiar, with the feeling of being off balance. Simply standing up can sometimes, be a challenge.

We run into door facings and cabinets, stagger as we walk, feeling very
wobbly on our feet, miss our mark when we sit down, have difficulty
walking up or down steps, have strange sensations in our head. etc.

We may also feel as if we're falling to one side in bed or walking to
one side when up. Often, I feel myself sway from side to side when
standing still. This is a bit disturbing to me, yet part of this same

I've found meds to help with vertigo, when the room feels
as if its spinning - however for this off balance issue, nothing seems
to help, when it hits.

This is thought to be due to Fibro and/or ME/CFS causing our equilibrium to me off.
