Collapse of knees!
« on: Dec 30 2009, 01:53 PM »
Dear readers,

Having had MD for some years, I thought everything had been thrown at
me at one time or another! But no. Now my knees have decided to give
way (twice, so far) over the Christmas period. Fortunately I was in the
kitchen on both occasions. Spinning merrily, as you do, I grabbed the
sink, but my legs wouldn't stop wobbling, the knees going backwards and forwards at an alarming rate. This frightened me more than the spin
itself.  With previous spins, my legs have held me enough to lie down.
Again this morning another one. This time I slid down the work top to
the floor and sat for some time before slowly making my way to bed.
Is this a normal thing?  If so, I am extremely worried.  Could affect me
more in the future! Meniere's is a horrible experience at the best of times.  Anyone else have this problem, and if so, how to deal with it?

Dear Marie

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thought I was going mad.  As you are a very
much younger sufferer than me, it must be a real 'pain in the neck' at
the best of times.  Yes, you can't let it get the better of you.  As an
older 'spinner' I have at long last got the hang of this devil.  You learn
what not to do and what you can do and make the very best of your
life.  Take it almost in slow motion.  Count to ten and stay cheerful.
A very happy and steady New Year to everyone on the Forum.
Val.

Hi,

Just joined this forum today after suffering with MD for nearly 7 years and this morning my left knee collapsed - convinced myself that this was nothing to do with MD and must be something even worse !! Reading this thread has given me comfort that I am not going mad. Thank you :)
