Surprisingly common, dizziness and balance problems can affect almost anyone and can be the result of a number of issues, including inner-ear problems, head injuries, or a variety of seemingly unrelated medical conditions. In some cases, these symptoms can be debilitating and result in severe disabilities and a significant decrease in quality-of-life.
