Dizziness - Vertigo - Inbalance
The vestibular system is comprised of the parts of the inner ear and brain that process the sensory information involved with controlling balance and eye movements. When these areas are damaged by injury of disease, vestibular disorders can result. Symptoms can include intense sensations of spinning, nausea, loss of balance, “brain fog”, a general sense of not feeling well and fatigue and gait issues.
Common vestibular disorders include benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), vestibular neuritis or labyrinthitis, Meniere’s disease, perilymph fistula, and secondary endolymphatic hydrops, among others.
Symptoms such as imbalance and chronic dizziness can severely impact a person’s quality of life. Vestibular disorders can affect both adults and children.
