What causes balance problems?

Answer: 

At first, many people with balance symptoms are worried that they may be suffering from a serious illness, such as a stroke or a brain tumour. Fortunately, this is very unlikely, although you should see a doctor if you are worried.

Many different medical conditions can give you symptoms of dizziness and unsteadiness, although the most common causes are problems with the inner ear.
