Funny you said that I am very reclusive I am on Social Security Dis now and thank god I am always dropping things and the first time I went into manhattan by train when I started to walk on the street at first it was like walking over something and than it went away
I wasn't and haven't been on taxol, but I also fall. I was always klutzy...now I literally fall backwards...ESP. When i'crouched looking in a box, etc.
I too was on Taxol and have some of the same symptoms
I saw my oncologist today & he upped the milligrams on my Gabapentin that I take for nerve pain.

Good times.
