Trouble getting up?

My mare has been slightly wierd lately.
She's sound, vet, teeth, feet, etc.
And she moves fine, but the past 2 times she's laid down, she's having trouble standing up. She'll drag around on her hip and struggle. Sometimes she even fell a couple times in the process.
She's perfectly fine though once she's up?
The vet is going to be out somewhat soon, but you guys have any thoughts?

We are as soon as we can!
And by fall, I mean, when she's starting up on her front end, she'll slip down. Not like a big fall.

Any time you start seeing changes especially those that might be neurological getting the vet on sooner rather than later is always preferred.

What do you mean by "soon"? This is like an emergency call in my book....not just scheduling an appointment to get out "soon".

As in tomorrow, because they're all closed today.
And last time she was moving a little funny, the chiropractor came out and she was fine. Her pelvis was off.
So could this be the same thing is what I'm wondering?

How old is your mare? Is she up to date on vaccines? If she is old it might just be a muscle weakness. If she is not up to date on vaccines you are looking at anything from rabies, to west nile to epm. Either way, I would get a vet out because none of those are easy and they are nothing that joe shmo on the internet is going to be able to diagnose and fix. If she does go down and can't get up please don't get hurt trying to get her up. Call your vet, its an emergency. If your vet does not do emergencies or have someone covering their emergencies get a new vet.

^ this! All vets either do emergency calls OR have a back-up to call in case of an emergency. Every vet I've ever had, had an emergency line.

She's 12, and up to date on everything, including her rabies shot. I've researched the epm like crazy, and that wasn't on anything. Only stuff while walking? And that's it.
And we are havin the vet out tomorrow. She can get up, she struggles a bit, but isn't acting painfully. The second time he got up much easier than the first as well.
So all of its leading me to think she might have pulled something r needs adjusting? Bit I'll see tomorrow I giess
