Good morning folks 
I hope you're well.
I can walk without any aids but not in a straight line.
Also the right side of my body is severely weaker than the left.
Does anyone know what medical names are given to these 2 conditions ?
Thanks

    Hi Geek84,
    There are multiple medical conditions which could cause both of those symptoms.  I'm not sure if you're asking as a riddle for us to guess, or because you're not sure of the names of the conditions yourself.  If it's the latter, then the best thing would be to ask your GP as they will have a list of your diagnosed conditions.  (The receptionist might even be able to tell you without having to speak to the GP).

    Hi,

    We are not trained medical professionals here and can't give any advice regarding this. You need to speak to your GP because there could be many reasons why this is happening to you.

    Good Morning @geek84
    Any & All 'medical conditions' that you have should be explained to you (or to your appointee) by your GP and/or any Hospital Specialist that you've seen... If it's the case that you don't understand what you've been told, then ask your GP again or take a trustable friend or a family member with . 
    I can understand that you may be too worried perhaps, but you've made the right step by asking us and so please ask your Dr, too.

    Morning @geek84

    I'm as good as can be thank you.

    In answer to your question has your doctor not told you what is causing the problems your having with your health?

    With my problems I have walking, weakness in hand/arm, speech problems, back problems and the list goes on.
    I was sent to a specialists to diagnose every one of my conditions I have and countless MRI/CT scans.

    I hope this gives you some insight, beacuse I think in your situation only a medically trained professional can tell you what might be causing and give you a name of what the condition may be.

    I hope you get some answers from your doctor.
    If you have any other questions please feel free to ask and if cant help you, I'm sure someone els might have the answer your looking for
