Roughly 50% of all dizziness is caused by inner ear disturbances, about 5% by medical and neurological problems each, about 15% by psychological disturbances, and the remainder of patients (about 25%) the diagnosis is essentially unknown.

In dizzy patients, most imbalance is caused by inner ear disturbances. When dizziness is not present, most imbalance is central. In older patients, multi-sensory disturbances are the most common. In younger patients, central problems are more common.

The great majority of hearing disturbances are sensory-neural, either associated with aging or noise exposure. Conductive hearing losses can generally be fixed by surgery. Central hearing losses are very rare. Psychological hearing losses are also very uncommon.
