Neurologist: The inner ear is only one source of balance disorders. The brain and the neck are other sources. Furthermore, lightheadedness is not a symptom of inner ear vestibular dysfunction. I would recommend a neurologist and make sure this is not low blood pressure or a side effect of any medications you are taking.
