Why let vertigo affect that?

Do you feel...

A sensation of motion, spinning, or falling when moving your head quickly, or changing your position (for example, when getting in and out of bed)?
Uncomfortable trying to walk in the dark?
That walking down grocery store aisles or through a mall is disturbing?
Your feet just won’t go where you want them to?
A sense of unsteadiness? A feeling that you are not surefooted?
Difficulty keeping your balance as you walk on different surfaces, e.g. from tile to carpet?
That you are drifting or being pulled to one side when walking?
That no-one really understands how frustrating all this is?
If you answered ‘Yes’ to two or more of these questions, it’s time to consider a vestibular and equilibrium evaluation. The good news, is that in 90% of cases, a balance disorder can be successfully treated once properly diagnosed.
