Spotting Dizziness and Balance Problems - 3rd April 2016

Dizziness and balance problems may be hard to spot in children. Younger kids may lack the vocabulary to describe their symptoms. Talk with a health care provider if your child:

  • falls frequently.
  • seems unsteady upon standing or walking.
  • feels as if the room is spinning around him/her.
  • feels as if moving when standing or sitting still.
  • feels as if she’s falling. 
  • feels lightheaded, or as if he might faint.
  • says that vision becomes blurred.
