If you often feel dizzy, lightheaded, or like the room is spinning, you could be suffering from a balance problem. A balance problem is the inability to keep your feet steady and move confidently due to blackouts, dizzy spells, fainting, spinning (vertigo), and losing consciousness. The feeling may occur when you are still or during movement. You may also feel confused, disoriented, or have blurred vision.

Balance problems may cause fall-related injuries such as a broken arm or hip. Various factors can cause dizziness, although it is mainly caused by confusion of information relayed to the brain between systems. Compromised brain systems send the wrong information to the brain, causing dizziness, confusion, and balance loss. If you are experiencing balance problems, it is essential to contact your healthcare provider as soon as possible. This helps rule out other health conditions such as tumors or stroke.
