  2. Do you experience numbness or loss of sensation in your legs or feet?
  3. Are you inactive (answer yes if you do not participate in a regular form of exercise, such as walking 20-30 minutes at least 3 times per week)?
  4. Do you feel dizzy or unsteady if you make sudden changes in movement, such as bending over or quickly turning?
  5. Have you experienced a stroke or other neurological problem that has affected your balance?
  6. Do you take medicine for two or more of the following: heart disease, hypertension, arthritis, anxiety, or depression?
  7. Do you feel unsteady when you are walking or climbing?
  8. Have you fallen more than once in the past year?
