Symptom Checker

Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.


Thank you for using this symptom guide. We hope it was helpful and that your balance problem improves soon.

Please remember:

- There are many causes of imbalance or unsteady gait; while some of them increase in frequency as we age, poor balance is not an inevitable part of aging

- Consider medications as a potential cause of poor balance; check with your doctor or pharmacist about this possibility

- Many of the common causes of poor balance are reversible or treatable, but the treatment depends on the cause. So, be sure to get your symptoms checked out by your doctor
