In the past month, various members in the chat room have talked about how they cope with dizziness and balance problems. I was surprised to learn that some people experience vertigo as a result of hearing loss. It never did occur to me how inner ear functions can actually affect balance as well, since this has never been a problem for my type of hearing loss. I would be interested in learning more about this, and Iím sure others would be, too.

So, join us on Wednesday Nightís Open Chat Night and share your experiences and advice on dizziness and balance problems. For instance, does it happen on a regular basis? Do you find that technology like cochlear implants or hearing aids make it worse? What do you do to prevent it?
