Unsteady balance/walking + difficulty concentrating + tiredness?

Hello, for the past 8 months or so I have noticed that my balance has become poor. As I'm walking, I often drift to the right or left unintentionally and I feel as if I am going to fall. More recently, I began having difficulties concentrating and studying. And I feel tired most of the time. I am a 21 year old female and I am not taking any medications. Does this sound serious? What could it be?

Hi...it could be serious..and it could be something simple.

But to speculate won't give u the answers....please make an appointment with a NL (neurologist) and find out answers.

I find it difficult to walk after about 100 metres like a slowing down of legs. Had a lot of back problems and stuff.
