  • Did you fall or did you collapse? There's a huge difference...

  • If your knee didn't lock up or give out, did you slip on something? Did you pass out? or faint??

  • So for awhile my leg kept giving out, and I went to see my doctor about it (it was accompanied by lower back pain too though) and they did some MRI's and found out that I had 2 bulging disc's, and 1 that was herniated. The bulging ones were pressing on some nerves and also causing my actual spinal column to narrow, and causing all sorts of problems.

  • Dunno if t his helps, but my mom had a problem with what she thought was her hip going out and it would cause her to fall. When she finally found someone who knew what they were doing, they found out that she was having problems with her sciatic nerve. It took going to a chiropractor and getting her entire spine and stuff realigned before the problems subsided.
