  • Hi cm49 I just wanted to say I'm glad I'm not the only one this happens to. I do go through fazes of falling over. I also get the feeling of it closing in on me as well. My blood pressure drops when I stand up aswell. I didn't know their was a falls team. Can you give me more info on them please as I think they could be useful to me. My OT said they can't do much more for me I have rails in my flat to help me. I also have a walking shower to help me aswell. Hope you feel better soon. Hugs. Angie

  • Hi there,with regards to the DLA claim.It can take quite a few months when you put your claim in so don't worry.I think mine took about 3 or 4 months and strange enough I actually got backdated pay from the day I applied put into my account before I got the letter from them which was a nice surprise,especially as it was just before Xmas time.Good luck with your claim,and if they turn you down contact cab to ask if they can help you appeal x

  • This is postural hypotension. It can happen to anyone. It often happens to me when standing from sitting. As my balance isn't good anyway, it worries me in case I fall!! XX
