When I Stand I Get Dizzy, When I Walk, I Drift To The Right, Why?

Answer

Hi Charlee

It sounds like maybe you are experiencing some vertigo? Mandy Crest has written about this symptom and you may find her article here.

I tend to have symptoms primarily on my right side. I have had many bouts of feeling off balance and my body will tilt towards my right side. I am guessing that this is due to lesions on the left side of my brain.

In this pdf article about the brain, the author states that:

"Most physicians, nurses and therapists clearly can state that the left side of the brain is dominantfor language and also controls the movement on the right side of the body."

So you might have some things going on in the left part of your brain.

If you are having difficulties with the dizziness I would strongly suggest that you do contact your doctor. He or she may be able to treat your vertigo.

Thank you for your question!
