Balance can be related to hearing.



Signs of Balance Problems

Often times, hearing loss and balance problems go hand in hand because of the proximity of the hearing nerve to the cochlea.

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF BALANCE PROBLEMS INCLUDE:


  • Sense of motion or spinning.

  • Feeling faint or lightheaded.

  • Feeling a floating sensation.

  • Vision changes such as blurriness.


If you have experienced a recent head or ear injury that has resulted temporary hearing loss, ringing in the ears, or any of the above balance symptoms, contact a hearing health professional.
