I am a 65 year old female. I have fallen

I am a 65 year old female. I have fallen 7 times in the last few months. Some of the falls were caused by my puppy, but, I should have been able to recover my balance before I went completely down. Now I am experiencing overall muscle pain, especially in my thighs and lower back. I found out that one of the falls caused a Baker’s cyst behind my right knee. I also am experiencing severe pain in my right shoulder. I have also been dropping things a lot.

I am 65 years old, a female. I have just been diagnosed with allergy to gluten, dairy, and eggs. My life has changed. It has been difficult. My question is....is it unusual to develop allergies of this sort at this age. Is it something that will last forever or may get better?
