Hello from JustAnswer.
Are you unable to walk because of weakness that is affecting one or both legs?
Or are you having weakness affecting the entire body?
Do you have any chronic medical problems?
Have you had any evaluation for this difficulty walking?
The system says that you would like a phone call, so I will send the Offer for that.
I had asked for some further information and I got a response that you wanted a phone call, so I sent an Offer to discuss this by phone and have not heard back.
Inability to walk can be related to many different types of problems. If it is due to weakness of only a portion of the body, such as one leg, it would be worrisome for a stroke. Weakness of one or both legs also can be related to spine problems that is pinching the spinal cord or the nerves as they exit the spine. Diffuse weakness would be more worrisome for a systemic conditions, such as an infection, certain metabolic conditions, such as electrolyte abnormalities. It also could be related to a diffuse musculoskeletal or inflammatory condition.
Generally speaking, someone that has new onset of inability to walk should be seen by a doctor for an examination and further evaluation to determine the cause of the problem.
If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
