I tried to get up and fell tonight. It felt like suddenly I didn't have any legs and down I went. Thankfully, my mom heard the noise and came running to help.

    I would seek medical help asap. Could be HPVV... (Can't remember what it's called.) It can lead to temporary and permanent paralysis. Maybe even a pinched nerve. But no matter what get to a doctor

    I had it before! My family physician told me it was postural hypotension. It means that your blood pressure drops when you chang positions

    Definitely go to the doctor. It could be postural hypotension, POTS, a med reaction, any number of things. Or it could be a one time thing. But something like that could be triaged as a nervous system issue and really should be looked at by a medical professional.
