Dear Nad
Some viral infections can cause nerve damage and this may be the reason why you can't walk properly - it is (usually) temporarily. If you had a flu like illness, fluid behind the ear drum can cause hearing loss ( usually also temporarily) These symptoms are often caused by an immune reaction to the virus.
