Do you have a hematological issue such as sickle cell, or do you have a hereditary problem with homocysteine, such as mthfr. Is there a cardiac problem such as a lingering vsd, or pfo? In other words, is there a future risk? Get answers and even additional opinions. ...Read more
Stroke & tpa my husband had a stroke in 2007 at the age of 56. His first symptoms although he had a headache/ vomiting, which we thought was a touch of flu, it wasn't until a few hours later that he developed double vision, numbness & loss of balance.
?: I'm not sure your question. This does sound normal for a stroke but my greatest concern is the comparatively young age, I hope this has been well evaluated and possible problems treated to reduce the risk of recurrence. ...Read more

Unusual: Loss of balance is a symptom not a diagnosis it could be due to a variety of conditions some relatively common such as a fall in blood pressure on rising due to low muscle tone, dehydration anemia etc to more significant problems like cerebellar disorders, drug side effects, metabolic problems such as low sugar and ear disease. ...Read more
Vertebrobasilar art?: Transient obscurations of vision, especially on rapid standing, can cause a bilateral dimming of vision with lightheadedness. The cerebellum is a balance control center and is located in an area of the brain near the visual cortex. A vertebrobasilar artery occlusion could cause both symptoms. A neuro-ophthalmologist can check your mri. ...Read more
Many things: Sounds like an infectious disease is present. Loss of balance can occur directly through involvement of inner ear, brainstem, loss of position sense in feet, leg weakness (muscle aches, nerve injury). Indirect causes include generalized weakness, sleep deprivation, distraction (pain, upset stomach, malaise). ...Read more
No: Balance is maintained with proprioception, vestibular function and vision. When eyes closed, other 2 should help maintain balance. But the above problem tells, you may have proprioception related problem. Proprioception is one's ability to know one's body in space. This is a neurology problem. ...Read more

Medications can cause balance problems, intracerebral problems may cause balance problems. Infections and metabolic issues can also cause these symptoms.
There are certain neurological diseases that are associated with balance problems (such as parkinson's).
The cerebellar portion of the brain is responsible for control of coordination. ...Read more
One possibility.: The loss of balance may actually be a pre- fainting spell. As we get older the bodies ability to fight gravity is decreased. As a result the blood vessels do not contract as rapidly and if you stand quickly they will not be able to respond and push blood against gravity. This will cause a transient decrease in blood flow to the brain and make one unsteady. ...Read more
Yes, possibly.: The loss of balance may actually be a pre- fainting spell. After lying down for 2 days the bodies ability to fight gravity is decreased. As a result the blood vessels do not contract as rapidly and if you stand quickly they will not be able to respond and push blood against gravity. This will cause a transient decrease in blood flow to the brain and make one unsteady. ...Read more

See a physician: Unfortunately, there are many conditions that can cause those symptoms, from very mild (like ear infections, sinus infections, etc.) to more serious. Balance and dizziness problems are often due to conditions in the inner ear, but not always. I would absolutely recommend seeing your physician. Best of luck to you! ...Read more
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
Many mechanisms: Would check for thyroid and anemia problems, but also blood pressure and cardiac events. The constellation of symptoms could be inner ear, and Meniere's might be considered. Some of this occurs in a whole variety of systemic illnesses, and even neurological disorders. Hard to pin down based upon this description, but a Concierge visit may help. ...Read more
