What causes loss of balance and dizziness? I have had laringitis for 3 weeks not on meds of any kind
If: If the perception of movement is rotary or spinning, this is termed vertigo and is usually reflective of an inner ear problem. Given your recent history of laryngitis, I agree with dr. Fowler that this is probably viral in origin and typically self-limiting. If the vertigo is not associated with any hearing loss, this is usually from vestibular neuronitis (inflammation around the balance nerves near the brainstem). Normally, when the brain receives simultaneous and equal input from our balance organs (semicircular canals), the two signals cancel out and we don't perceive imbalance. When one of the inputs from one ear is firing at a different rate or intensity the the brain interprets the difference as asymmetry and we experience vertigo. Hope this didn't confuse you but it is a very complicated system. ...Read more
