Causes of dizziness

Because of the complexity of our balance system, the cause of dizziness can be tricky to identify.

There could be many contributing factors, particularly as the body ages. The main areas that help us balance lie within our inner ears, our nervous system, our eyes, and our bones, joints, and muscles. In determining the cause of your dizziness or vertigo, we will discuss the background of your symptoms, and test each of facet of your balance system as needed.

Some of common balance-related conditions include:

  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)
  • Vestibular neuronitis / labyrinthitis
  • Acoustic neuroma (post-op)
  • Oto-toxicity
  • Ménière's disease
  • Perilymph fistula
  • Superior Canal Dehiscence Syndrome
  • Vestibular Migraine
  • Chronic Neck Pain
  • Multiple Sclerosis

Ear Science Clinic understands just how debilitating a sense of dizziness or vertigo can be. It can cause stomach pains, nausea, and disturbances in digestion, while seeping you of your energy and taking you away from your daily activities.

If you experience imbalance, vertigo or dizziness, please make an appointment with your GP, audiologist or health care professional and request a referral to the Ear Science Clinic.
