Dizziness related to the inner ear is one of the most common types and it results from disturbances in the blood circulation or fluid pressure in the inner ear, pressure on the balance nerve or physiologic changes in the balance nerve. Any of these interruptions to the function of the inner ear may result in symptoms like tinnitus (ringing in the ears) or hearing loss as well as dizziness.
Hearing Loss and Falls
In 2012, a study by Johns Hopkins Medicine determined that untreated hearing loss can also increase the risk of falling. Researchers found that people with mild hearing loss were nearly three times more likely to have a history of falling.
While more studies need to be done, one possible explanation they had for the increased risk of falls is a that a person with untreated hearing loss has less awareness of their overall environment, so are more susceptible to tripping and falling.
