Dizziness is a feeling of imbalance or disequilibrium. You may feel like you are swirling around in a circle or having objects around you appearing to move in a circle. This is very common. Dizziness can originate from the aging process, an infection, or blockage of blood vessels to the inner ear. Diseases of the nerves to the brain or the brain itself may also cause dizziness. It is not always simple to be certain of the origin of dizziness and thus specific tests may be selected according to the symptoms. Dizziness is not necessarily an indication of a stroke or tumor. This symptom can be treated effectively in most cases once the source of the symptom is indentified, whether the ear, the brain, the blood vessels or other causes. It’s important to see your doctor to identify the cause in order to get appropriate treatment.
