Symptoms of Balance Disorders
Symptoms of balance disorders present themselves differently from person to person. Most people with balance disorders will feel like they are floating, spinning, or moving when standing, sitting, or lying down. Some people experience dizziness or feel faint when standing or as if they may suddenly tip over. Others may stagger when walking or experience blurred vision and/or disorientation and confusion. Vertigo, the feeling of intense spinning, is also a symptom of some balance disorders.
Symptoms of chronic dizziness or balance issues can severely impact a person’s ability to perform basic daily functions and can lead to anxiety, fatigue, and depression. It is important to talk to a professional if you experience abnormal dizziness or balance issues and periodic dizzy spells when standing up too quickly, or when you are dehydrated.
Causes of Balance Disorders & Dizziness
Your risk for balance and vestibular disorders increases as you age and there are multiple factors that can cause them, such as:
- Bacterial or viral infections
- A head injury
- Ear infection
- Disturbance of inner ear fluid
- Certain medications
- Issues with the skeletal or visual systems
There are also times that these types of issues will occur without any obvious or apparent cause. It’s important to keep in mind that dizziness and lack of balance are often the symptoms of an underlying medical issue. Contact our office if you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms.
