Greetings,

Thank you for choosing us to get an opinion regarding your health issues.

Based on your explanations, you are experiencing dizziness and unable to stand steadily with closed eyes. I will give related informations based on your situations.

For your information, a sense of dizziness or lightheadedness can result from:

  • Inner ear problems. Abnormalities of the vestibular system can lead to a sensation of floating or other false sensation of motion.
  • Psychiatric disorders. Depression (major depressive disorder), anxiety and other psychiatric disorders can cause dizziness.
  • Abnormally rapid breathing (hyperventilation). This condition often accompanies anxiety disorders and may cause lightheadedness.
  • Medications. Lightheadedness can be a side effect of medications.

You need to seek medical advice for an accurate diagnosis and early treatments to prevent any unfavourable situations

I hope the above statement does help you in a way and if you need further assistance and explanations from us, you can talk to our doctor or our specialist online. Thank you.
