Off Balance and Falling

For the past month I have been falling a lot. I will suddenly become off balance and fall forward. So far I have only received minor injuries, but am worried that I will be hurt worse at some point as I continue to have balance issues. I don't get dizzy during these spells, I just suddenly fall forward. I do have balance issues if I get up quickly but it is no problem as I just sit for a little while before getting up on my feet. I also occasionally  feel dizzy when I am lying down. I don't know what could be causing these symptoms.

Contact your Physician.  Do you have diabetes?

Best case scenario is middle ear problem (equilibrium ).  Or blood pressure  problems.  Worst case is parkinsons.  See a doctor.
