Abstract: 

Dizziness is described as having a variety of unpleasant sensations which often interfere with balance and walking. It is a common complaint by people over age 65, affecting 13-38% of elderly Americans. Dizziness may occur by many different causes which can be difficult to diagnose.
Dizziness is usually related to a metabolic or even cardiovascular origin nevertheless, vertigo is an otological or neurological problem. Frequently, dizziness is not usually considered as a long lasting complication however, in almost one quarter of the elderly with this problem, it may last a year or even more. Dizziness is not usually associated with increased risk of death unless it is a sign of heart disease. However, dizziness may increase the risk of collapse and decrease the quality of life, especially if it is persistent or severe.
