How can we feel balanced in a world that never stands still? The I’m 'Just' Dizzy Podcast is your ultimate resource for conquering dizziness and living a balanced life – physically, spiritually, and emotionally. The title is a reminder that no one is “just dizzy.” You, your loved ones, a co-worker, a neighbor – someone in your life has most likely experienced disabling dizziness or who limits their daily activities due to fear of falling. This podcast gives you access to experts in the field and real-life tools to bring tangible changes in a safe community. Let’s work together to raise awareness and understanding for overcoming and conquering the challenges while living with dizziness and balance problems.

Welcome to Episode 8 of “I’m Just Dizzy,” where we delve into some of our patients’ most pressing questions about dizziness and vertigo. This episode addresses various topics to provide clarity, reassurance, and practical advice on managing these challenging symptoms.

We begin by tackling whether dizziness is an age-related issue and explore the distinctions between hereditary and genetic factors influencing dizziness. We then discuss the concept of “no pain, no gain” in vestibular rehabilitation, emphasizing the importance of understanding and managing symptoms without overexertion.

Next, we group several related questions to provide comprehensive insights into how stress, vision, neck issues, and medications can contribute to dizziness and unsteadiness. Each factor plays a crucial role in your overall sense of balance and well-being, and we offer actionable tips on addressing them.

We also demystify vertigo by defining it clearly and discussing its common causes and symptoms. For those who have experienced severe vertigo episodes, we address concerns about recurrence and delve into conditions like BPPV and Meniere’s Disease.

Finally, we answer whether you’ll need to continue specific exercises indefinitely, highlighting the benefits of lifelong balance exercises while stressing that individualized plans are key to effective management.

Join us while I share common questions from patients with dizziness and unsteadiness. Tune in to gain valuable insights, feel supported, and become part of a community dedicated to enhancing well-being through knowledge and shared experiences.
