This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Balance problem is likely due to the lack co ordination between your leg muscles and the brain sginals.
Hence, neuropathy or nerve damage is likely.
This can be caused by the recent infection, diabetes, thyroid disorder, vitamin B12 deficiency, stroke also.
Niacin may help with balance problem if deficiency related.
Other natural supplements that may help with nerve problem are Alpha lipoic acid 400 to 800 mg daily, vitamin B12 1000 mcg daily, vitamin B6 50 mg daily.
You should also consider seeing a physiatrist or physical and rehabilitation medicine specialist for proper physical therapy guidance.
Physical therapy should focus on improving brain and leg coordination, strengthening of core and leg muscles and balance training.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
