Treat Dizziness: Vertigo & IMBalance

Do you feel like the world around you is constantly spinning? Do you feel dizzy and nauseous when you roll over in bed? Are you having difficulty walking because you just can’t seem to catch your balance, especially in the dark? You may be suffering from a balance disorder.

A balance disorder is a condition that makes you feel dizzy or unsteady.  Symptoms of a balance disorder can include lightheadedness, vertigo, disorientation, wooziness, unsteadiness, giddiness, or a sensation of floating, falling, spinning, or false movement. It is difficult to maintain equilibrium with a balance impairment. These symptoms can cause faintness, diarrhea, vomiting, anxiety, fear, and panic. Symptoms may come and go very quickly or last for a longer period of time. This can additionally lead to depression, decreased concentration, and fatigue.  Needless to say, having issues with balance and dizziness can be debilitating and dangerous to your overall health.

Your sense of balance relies on a series of complex signals to the brain from a number of formations and organs in the inner ear which together comprise your vestibular system. A balance evaluation can help determine where a disruption may be occurring in your vestibular system.  At Peachtree Hearing, you will have a complete balance evaluation to help diagnose and appropriately treat your balance disorder. The sooner a balance disorder is identified, the quicker the treatment can begin and you can start feeling better.
