Dizziness & Balance
We balance using many different sensory inputs – from our ears, eyes and sensory fibres in our joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons, called proprioception. Millions of neurons are involved in making sense of this information and if any aspect of the balance pathway is disrupted, we feel symptoms that range from a disassociated, foggy sensation to profound vertigo with associated vomiting.
