What is Balance Awareness Week?

Balance Awareness Week is a journey initiated by the Vestibular Disorders Association. The aim is to highlight just how much of an impact inner ear and brain disorders can have on a person’s daily life. Suffering from vestibular disorders can be excruciating. The victim often experiences chronic physical, mental, and emotional pain. This is because of the intense dizziness, ringing of the ear, vertigo and even causes depression.

During the week of September 19 to September 25, get familiar with vestibular disorders. Get yourself checked if you have balance issues and encourage others that have similar problems to be tested as well. Although many balance disorders are incurable, quick intervention can help a lot. With quick diagnosis and incorporated coping methods, victims can regain more control in their lives.

Know More About Vestibular Disorders

If you start to notice slightly wobbly or imbalance for a period of time, and it doesn’t feel like how it used to be; this could mean your sense of balance is deteriorating. The other vestibular symptoms such as dizziness or brain fog can be experienced as well. While some vestibular decline is common with advanced age, dizziness and vertigo are as normal as we thought and it should be treated.

The vestibular system includes the inner ear, which houses the organ of balance, and the brain. These organs work together to control/coordinate balance and eye movements. Damage to this system often results in balance difficulties and/or dizziness. The vestibular system is complex and these are the symptoms caused by vestibular disorder:

  1. Balance Difficulties
  2. Dizziness 
  3. Vertigo
  4. Visual Disturbances
  5. Auditory Distortion
  6. Cognitive Problems
  7. Nausea
  8. Ear Pain
  9. Slurred Speech
  10. Headache

Although these symptoms can be caused by a number of factors, it is best to check your vestibular sytems to make sure it doesn’t get into your way of life. These symptoms are often chronic and can be disturbing. In addition, they can lead to loss of confidence and self-esteem, anxiety, social isolation, and depressions.
