Abstract

Dizziness is a common presenting complaint among older patients in primary care. A thorough examination and history can identify the type of dizziness and point to a specific differential diagnosis. Vertigo, presyncope, dysequilibrium, and non-specific dizziness are associated with a variety of underlying causes, each with specific treatment options.
