What Causes Dizziness and Balance Disorders?

A balance disorder is an ailment that makes you feel dizzy or unsteady, inducing the sensation of spinning or floating or moving. And although short or trivial episodes of dizziness are common and no cause for concern, more extreme sensations of spinning (vertigo) or protracted dizzy spells should be assessed. In combination with dizziness, you may also encounter other symptoms such as nausea, a change in heart rate, anxiety, or panic. Again, if these episodes are especially severe or prolonged, it’s a good idea to seek out professional care.

It’s always a good idea to schedule an appointment with an audiologist or ear, nose and throat doctor if you experience multiple episodes of dizziness, or your balance issues are accompanied by other symptoms.
