My father is 70 years old. He is 6,3", slim and healthy for his age. He has had gait problems for a very long time now (up to 10 years), where his legs tend to scissor cross as he walks. The problem is only getting worse to the point where he now needs a walker (for the past 8 months).
He has been to Germany, the United States and England looking for a diagnosis for his problem but no doctor seems to know what the problem is.
He has had CT scans and MRIs for everything, no neurological or other problems were detected.
Due to his gait problems he now has constant back pain. He has insomnia and takes stilnox to help him sleep (half a tablet as needed).
I'm willing to provide additional information as needed. We feel like we have exhausted all possibilities and would appreciate any help from patients who have had the same problem or doctors who might know of a way to help.
