Dizziness is the most frequent reason patients visit a doctor. Dizziness is caused by the fact that the information getting to the central nervous system do not meet and therefore cause imbalance and dizziness. Dizziness often goes hand in hand with other uncomfortable symptoms: the patient often feels nausea, is pale and sweating. The aim of an otoneurological examination is to get a proper picture of the patient’s organ of balance. After the examination the specialist makes a decision about the therapy and about whether further examination (otolaryngological or neurological examination) is necessary. The specialist may require laboratory tests, too.
