They never know when they’ll be struck by a dizzy spell and this can cause them to go through life with overwhelming trepidation. The inner ear is a critical part of our system’s balance and when it doesn’t receive enough blood flow, our primary command center (the brain) triggers warning signals via impaired vision, dizziness and vomiting.
