You now have a better understanding of balance disorders, their causes, symptoms, and potential treatments. Here is what you should do:
Request a referral from your primary care physician to a Balance Clinic or your ENT doctor. They will help you get a screening, a physical exam, and a balance assessment. As part of the evaluation, you will take a few tests, including rotary chair testing, caloric testing, and vHIT test (video head impulse test).
Remember to be patient and help your doctors, family and friends understand this condition. If a close relative has a balance disorder, remember to be sympathetic and supportive.
