Is dizziness common in old age?

I have always been dizzy now that I am nearing 60 it is getting worse. I have been to an ENT person and nothing has been found. I have had the procedure that is supposed to loosen the crystals in your ears this did not help. I have osteopenia getting close to osteoporosis. If I fall I can break. Is there help or am I to suffer. (I do know that all of us women are hysterical). My dizziness may get me fired from my job is I fall at work. My quality of life is getting works. What do I do? Oh and I live in third world conditions or the State of Alaska.

As per your history, it may be due to hypoglycemia or hypotension.

For that you may require fasting and postprandial sugar levels after physician consultation.

Do regular blood pressure monitoring.

Keep your self hydrated.

Take balanced diet.

You can take Betaserc tablets, this can help you to get rid of your dizziness, the cause of this is mainly an inflammation of inner ears.
