1. Balance is maintained by two system:-
i. Vestibular system: which is Normal according to ENT specialist.
ii. Cerebellum (nervous System): controls movement, balance, mobility and posture, thus cause imbalance, and because all our muscles are controlled by nervous system,but our legs show it the most because they support all the weight. so it is mandatory to check with a Neurologist regarding complete Neurological Examination [especially higher functions].
iii. You may also consult for Physical and Occupational therapy.
