What other symptoms might I have?

If your dizziness is caused by inner ear problems you might also experience problems with your hearing. This is because the balance and hearing systems are close together in the inner ear. If you do have hearing problems, they are likely to be either tinnitus (a ringing or buzzing noise in one or both ears) or varying degrees of hearing loss.
 
Some people experience clumsiness or unsteadiness because of physical problems like numbness or weakness in their legs. Other possible symptoms are double vision, numbness in your face, and problems with your speech. These might be signs that there are problems with the nerves in your face or head. These symptoms should be investigated by your doctor.
 
If you have had repetitive ear infections with discharge from your ear, your dizziness could be due to the balance systems in your inner ear being affected by a previous or current infection.
