What is a balance problem?

Many people experience balance problems or dizziness at some point in their lives. In fact, one study has shown that it is the second most common problem that people see their GP about. Many different medical conditions can cause dizziness and imbalance, and one of the most common is a problem with the inner ear.

If you are experiencing dizziness or balance problems, you may be referred by your doctor for a balance assessment appointment to investigate whether it is a problem with the balance organs in your inner ears which is causing your symptoms.
