Sudden trouble walking

My little guy is almost 7. Out of the blue late last night he had sudden trouble with his hind legs which I noticed when he went to the bathroom. By the time he went to bed about 30 minutes later, he could barely stand up or move his legs and he was clearly not comfortable. His hind legs basically gave out. It was frightening, but thankfully this morning he is able to stand and walk (a little slower than normal), and he’s been sleeping all day. I’m going to limit his walking/jumping and take him to the vet in a few days, but what wondering if anyone has had a similar experience.

    You've probably seen a vet already but degenerative myelopathy is common in corgis.

    Hey just thought I'd add something. My dog did have seizures I believe when he was young maybe from eating something he shouldn't. Not sure if that is what happened, but I think if anything odd happens they eventually grow out of it. He hasn't had seizures or odd issues like that since he was a puppy. He probably was just tired from playing.
