Health Tip: Having Balance Problems?

(HealthDay News) -- Balance problems may be hard to identify, since it's often difficult to describe symptoms to a doctor.

The U.S. National Institutes of Health says warning signs of a balance problem may include:

  • Feeling unsteady.
  • Feeling that the room is spinning.
  • While standing still or sitting, feeling as if you're moving.
  • Falling or losing balance.
  • Feeling faint or lightheaded.
