I fell again :(

 This is the 3rd time since July.  I'm thinking it's my ankle that gives out because I don't just crumble to the floor, I SLAM.  It is so scary because it happens so fast.  One minute I'm walking and the next I'm on the ground.  I have no pain or warning.  I was walking with my dd on the bike trail and using both walking sticks.  What I am so worried about is that I have to carry babies.  I can't be falling with babies!!!  But, I am not skilled in anything and cannot afford to have a minimum wage job.  I'm so upset...

 Oh No I am so sorry that has happened to you.  Have you been able to see a Dr.  I hope they can figure out what is going on.

I'm glad you didn't hurt yourself...

Could you try some ankle supports? Or support hose, maybe your muscles are just weakening. I'm not sure if you have medical problems, but be very careful. I step off my driveway wrong and just kind of splat into the yard, I didn't think anything was wrong other than a sprain and I ended up with screws in my ankle and in a cast for 3 months.

Please get this checked out by your doctor as soon as possible. My ex-mother in law had this happening to her and she ended up having a degenerative nerve disease. I am thinking of you.

ugh!  has a doctor diagnosed anything?  sometimes my right knee will just "give out" without warning and it is freaky.  and my ankles aren't the best, either, but so far I've not fallen.   please check into this.  maybe some ankle support like MarchantMom06 suggested?
