Balance Disorder

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 01 May 2022

A balance disorder is a condition that makes you feel dizzy or unstable. Every person has a dizzy spell now and then, however the term wooziness can indicate various things to different people. For someone, lightheadedness may indicate a fleeting feeling of faintness, while for another maybe an extreme sensation of spinning that lasts a very long time. About 15 percent of American adults had a balance or dizziness trouble in 2008. Balance disorders can be created by specific health and wellness conditions, medications, or an issue in the internal ear or the brain. A balance disorder can greatly affect daily activities and cause emotional and psychological hardship. Low blood pressure can lead to wooziness when you stand too rapidly. Troubles that influence the skeletal or aesthetic systems, such as arthritis or eye muscular tissue imbalance, can additionally cause balance disorders. Your risk of having balance issues increases as you get older.
