About Vestibular Disorders

The vestibular system includes the parts of the inner ear and brain that process the sensory information involved with controlling balance and eye movements. If disease or injury damages these processing areas, disorders of dizziness or balance can result. Vestibular disorders can also result from, or be worsened by, genetic or environmental conditions, or occur for unknown reasons.

The most commonly diagnosed vestibular disorders include:
– Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)
– Vestibular migraine
– Labyrinthitis or vestibular neuritis
– Ménière’s disease
– Age-related dizziness & imbalance
– Vestibular damage due to head injury

Hormones

There is increasing evidence on how sex hormones affect the inner ear. Many women report that hormonal fluctuations can trigger their vestibular symptoms.
