      It could be neuropathy. My feet at times will not send thier position to the brain and I have loss of balance.

      I did get an MRI and it was clear. 40 days later another brain MRI for baseline Ipi trial and they found mets.

      Either way get a brain MRI ASAP. I guess it gets better later in the day because you learn how to change the way you walk so things settle down. The shower thing I can relate to, it is when it first hit me.

      Go for a brain MRI. I have no idea if Nueropathy or the brain tumors caused it, but does it really matter.
