I have been finding recently that my ankles are giving me more problems.
They give way (go weak) suddenly, even when walking normally (ie. Not turning, or stepping, etc)
I bought some ankle supports in the hope that they would help, but not really as I still have the episodes where they lose strength, and can also be rather painful when it happens.
I haven't fallen on the ground yet as I have been lucky enough to have something solid to grab onto when it happened, but...
The ones I got are those you wrap around your ankle and fasten with Velcro.
Any thoughts? I'm due to see the physio at the ataxia clinic in a month or so, but wanted to try to manage this in the meantime.
In case you are wondering, that is not my foot in the photo
