The condition of Dizziness can range from fleeting faintness to a severe balance disorder that makes normal functioning impossible. Among adults over 60, about 20 percent have had a dizziness episode that affected their usual activities. Dizziness is also the unwanted side effect of many different medications.

  • Unsteadiness or a loss of balance

  • A false sense that you or your surroundings are spinning or moving (vertigo)

  • Floating experience
