Not everyone with ME has a positive Romberg sign. When I was severe I used to fall over if I closed my eyes while standing but not currently.
Yes, I suppose I would wobble a lot but not fall over. Doing the blindfold thing made it doubly brave I felt as it increased the vulnerability of not knowing what others were doing around you.

And hold her placard up @mermaid. She has impressive determination and must be having considerable PEM for that.
I'm not sure I'd have got the same reaction she did; I put on two stone and couldn't shave anywhere when I became housebound 6years ago and my wobbly bits haven't seen the sun in a very long time. I'd have ended up sitting in my wheelchair not knowing what to hide with my placard...

"Police arrested John and charged him in county court with indecent exposure. In 2015, a Multnomah County, OR, judge acquitted him, saying his protest — however naked — was still a protest and thus protected by the First Amendment.

In that judge’s eyes, public nudity violates the law only when people are engaged in sexual intercourse or if they got undressed “with the intent of arousing the sexual desire” of others."

yes, arrested then dismissed.
then she would have been invisible to the #millionsmissing demonstration.
therefore missing...
