Do you feel spinning sensation while having this balance problem or you just feel unsteady? Any ear ringing ore decreased hearing?
Have they checked your blood pressure?
Please wait, I am typing an answer.
Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. Dizziness or imbalance comes from three systems of the body mainly. Ears, Heart (including blood pressure) and Brain. Spinning is quite characteristic for ear disorders but as per your symptoms, this is not your case for sure. Unsteadiness is characteristic of heart and blood pressure disorders. Feeling dizziness while standing from a sitting position or when rising from reclining position goes towards heart and blood pressure disorders. Brain disorders can cause both spinning and unsteadiness. Not being able to walk in a straight line can also be related to the brain. I would strongly suggest you to go the A & E and get yourself evaluated. You may need a brain scan and EKG to get to the cause but I can reassure you being a specialist in dealing with the balance that ear is not your cause. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon.
