What Is Giving Me This Sensation That I’m Falling?
I get a very weird sensation that I’m falling and/or slumping to one side. Makes me feel nauseated, and I’m not even sure it appears to others that I’m moving (slumping or leaning forward) at all. What is this from?
I know that you have read my recent post Free Falling. I get the falling/slumping sensation too. It is most likely due to the location of my lesions in the c-spine as I don’t have any significant brain lesions. Part of it is a lack of awareness of where my body is in space, and part is due to an underlying weakness of core body muscles.
The difference is that I do not feel nauseated when I get this feeling, well most of the time that is. I do, however, feel nauseated if my head bends forward to my chest even when there are no electrical zaps at the same time. Odd, huh?
I wish that I had a better answer for you. Oh, one more thing, I seem to recall that you have difficulty with sensory overload, especially through sound. I have this as well. Maybe we have similar lesion patterns.
