Why am I dizzy?
There are a number of reasons why someone might feel dizzy, nauseous, or imbalanced. Dizziness is one of the more common reasons someone might go see their doctor. Much of our diagnostic testing is performed to rule out the inner ear, connecting neural pathways, and possible central nervous system functions as factors contributing to your symptoms.
What is that ringing/rushing/whistling sound in my ears?
That ringing sound is called tinnitus. There is still a great deal of research being conducted on tinnitus. Many people have tinnitus and describe it in different ways. It is commonly seen in people with high frequency hearing loss but it can also be a sign of other conditions. While there is no known cure for tinnitus there are several management techniques, devices, and therapies designed at lessening the severity and duration of the tinnitus to improve quality of life.
What types of tests are done during a typical evaluation? Are you going to make me dizzy?
Testing often centers on assessing the function of the inner ear (hearing and balance) as well as your overall balance stability. The more frequently used tests require wearing special goggles or placing electrodes on the skin that record eye movement. Some of our testing may make you dizzy, although most people tolerate the testing quite well.
I find myself saying “what” more often. Am I losing my hearing?
It is a good idea to have your hearing checked, especially if you feel like you are having difficulty hearing, understanding, or communicating.
Does insurance cover these tests?
Intermountain Healthcare hospitals and doctors contract with many insurance plans. To be sure that your services will be covered, we ask that you contact your insurance provider regarding your plan.
