Brief Answer:
Spinal Canal stenosis leads to muscle weakness and loss of balance.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I have studied your case and reports

Spinal Canal stenosis leads to muscle weakness leading to loss of balance in lower limb[feeling collapse].
I will advise you MRI spine and clinical examination.

For these symptoms neurotropic medication like pregabalin can be started consulting your doctor.
Physiotherapy like ultrasound and interferential therapy will give quick relief.
I will advise to check your vit B12 and vit D3 level.

Another possibility of cerebellar symptoms which can be confirmed on MRI brain and clinical examination.
