Feeling dizzy or being off-balance can really impact a person’s life. Something that seems to be a normal, everyday task can become difficult when you experience dizziness. Dressing, bathing, and working can be a challenge. Some 69 million people living in the USA have experienced some sort of vertigo or vestibular (relating to the ear and balance sensory) disorder symptoms.
How can one type of experience with dizziness be differentiated from another kind? Here are some specific symptoms:
- Vertigo is the feeling that you are spinning or moving or that the environment around you is doing so.
- Dizziness is feeling unsteady, faint, or lightheaded, but you do not feel like you are spinning.
- Disequilibrium is feeling a loss of balance or unsteadiness that comes along with spatial disorientation in most cases.

When you experience any of the above what is happening is that signals that flow from the brain to the body become disrupted. They are sending the signal that you are off-balance, even though you really are not. This information is sent through the sensory system. This system is made up of your eyes that perceive how the body is moving and where it is located, the nerves that relay messages to the brain about your position, and the inner ear that contains sensors that help in detecting gravity and if you are moving back and forth. So, what causes these to be out of balance?
