Re: Falls

I have also had several recent falls and I am only in my mid-60s.

 

I think part of my issue is weakness when I have not had enough sleep, and am investigating the fall alert systems, as currently healthy otherwise.

 

I would suggest, perhaps, a thorough physical, as it may be some physical ailment, or disease (e.g., Parkinsons)? If not that, then investigate fall alert systems, just to be safe?
