This is Dr. David

I am sorry you are having these falls and hitting your head.

I am worried about your loss of balance and balance problems you are having now.

you need to see your doctor

and see if you can get a CT scan or MRI scan of your brain

and you need to have your balance examined by a doctor.

I see you are on dialysis

sometimes dialysis can cause you to have more fatigue and weakness and can cause electrolyte problems in your blood stream

you need blood testing as well to check your blood levels

are you getting hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis?
