1 doctor agrees
In brief: 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.
