Dizziness and Hearing Loss

When people think of the word ‘Dizziness’ they would not always associate it with ‘Hearing Loss’. Dizziness and hearing loss can be related.

Although there are a number of reasons why dizziness occurs, the most common is when there is a problem with the inner ear. This is where the balance organ is found, and when this area is damaged in some way, the brain cannot process movement properly. Resulting in a dizzy feeling.

Hearing Loss

Dizziness and Hearing LossWhen the inner ear is unable to work due to too much pressure from the fluid found there, poor circulation or infection, it cannot send a message to the brain to ‘prove’ that everything is as it should be. Balance is disrupted and dizziness follows on.


Dizziness might feel exactly as it does when you have been spinning around for a while, but there are other symptoms too including:

  • Feeling Light Headed
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Unsteadiness

If you lose consciousness then there may be another reason for your dizziness, and medical advice should be sought as this is not usually a symptom of an inner ear issue. Other problems that can cause dizziness include vision issues, migraines, eye muscle deterioration, vitamin deficiency, infection, tumours and more.


Dizziness related to hearing loss can usually be dealt with fairly swiftly. In some cases it is simply down to a build up of wax that can be safety removed by Ear Wax Microsuction. For other people it can be medication, a change of diet or in some extreme cases, surgery. Perhaps it will be a combination of these things. This is why speaking to an expert about your symptoms and getting checked out is so important.
