Proprioception is the sense of our body's position in the environment. I bang into things like door ways. I hit the shelf when putting away dishes, instead of setting dishes on top of the shelf. I try to step over obstacles, and trip over them instead. It is very challenging to wend my way through lots of tables and chairs without bumping into them. I have balance problems. Often, if I lean over too far I have to catch myself, or I will fall. I did 3 Romberg tests with eyes closed and fell over all three times. I was advised this indicates neurological problems - no kidding! All of these things are worse when my OI is worse. I reach for something several times before I grasp it. I have broken dishes because my hand just lets go. I become clumsy when more tired, and when my OI kicks in which happens frequently every day. I fumble away trying to do small tasks that take me extra time to do, due to problems with dexterity. And the list goes on. All of this is invisible when I see health care practitioners for 10 minutes.
