Dizziness isn’t normal part of aging; get it evaluated, treated and managed


As an audiologist, I frequently have conversations with patients about symptoms of dizziness, imbalance, and vertigo. I typically begin the conversation by asking them to describe their dizziness. Often I hear, “well, I am X years old, so it’s normal be dizzy” or “isn’t it normal to have a little dizziness at my age?”

The most important thing to know about dizziness is that, while it is true that as we age, we often experience a change in our overall balance function, it is never normal to experience dizziness, vertigo or imbalance with falls, and it is not something we should learn to live with as we age.
