What are the symptoms of a balance disorder?
If your balance is impaired, you may feel as if the room is spinning. You
may stagger when you try to walk or teeter or fall when you try to stand up.
Some of the symptoms you might experience are:
vertigo (a spinning sensation)
Falling or feeling as if you are going to fall
Lightheadedness, faintness, or a floating sensation
Confusion or disorientation
Other symptoms are nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, changes in heart rate
and blood pressure, and fear, anxiety, or
panic. Some people also feel
tired, depressed, or unable to concentrate. Symptoms may come and go over
short time periods or last for longer periods of time.
