Hi.The ghosting things are called floaters and they are caused by changes in the density of the vitreous humor--the jelly inside the eyeball. They aren't serious and aren't related to the tinnitus and the disequilibrium. As for those, yes you need to see a neurologist for an exam, a hearing test, and an MRI of your ear to look for an inner ear problem or perhaps an acoustic neuroma--a tumor of the hearing cranial nerve Let me know if you need more information please

I haven't made myself clear, I don't have 'floaters@, things around me are ghosting when either those things are in motion (my arms for example0 or when I am moving in relation to fixed objects ( the edge of a wall etc) when I stop moving the ghost merges with the real object.

OK. In that case you also need an MRI of your brain to look for optic nerve tumors
