Customer Question
I have fallen down...

I have fallen down the stairs 3 times in the past week and NIW my right hand is very weak I'm concerned that it may be a sign of something really bad. I am only 27

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

I feel perfectly fine. The first time I fell I thought it yo be clumsiness but it happened twice over and now I feel weak in my hand

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I don't have any other illnesses. No allergies

Hello, this is Dr. Stan, thank you for your question. I am U.S. trained,

Board Certified and I have 30 years of patient experience and I am here to help you today. I'm sorry you have fallen frequently.

If the falls were due to weakness in one or both legs, this needs to be medically evaluated. Even without weakness in your right arm/hand, you need to be evaluated to rule out any neurological medical problems. May I suggest you schedule an appointment with your PCP or with a Neurologist. I don't want to alarm you but this could be many significant neurologic disorders ranging from plain clumsiness to MS.

I hope I have addressed your concerns. Have I?

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you and that I have earned your 5 star rating today.

Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen ( rating me now does not close your question). We can continue here until you are satisfied, simply use the reply box and let me know. Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
