Vestibular Dysfunction

Many people have experienced some form of “dizziness” in their life. Dizziness is a broad term often used to describe symptoms such as vertigo, disequilibrium, giddiness, faintness, syncope, light-headedness or imbalance. While these terms get used interchangeably, they represent states of dizziness with distinct and very different symptoms.

  • Dizziness is the feeling of light-headedness, giddiness and unsteadiness.
  • Disequilibrium is the feeling of being imbalanced and is a sensation of being disorientated within your surroundings.
  • Syncope is losing consciousness and fainting.
  • Vertigo is a sensation that you, or the room you are in, is in motion and is commonly felt like a spinning sensation.
