Vague sensation of light-headedness, subjective sensations of imbalance. These complaints, which can be characterized by their imprecision, are consistently among the most common that clinicians encounter when evaluating dizziness. Eliciting a history from these patients can be frustrating; often, they cannot describe their symptoms precisely. Rather than feeling frustrated, one can feel encouraged because the nonspecific, non-physical nature of the complaints leads to a specific diagnosis. Formerly referred to as “psychogenic dizziness,” persistent nonspecific dizziness that cannot be explained by active medical conditions is now a defined clinical entity known as chronic subjective dizziness, or CSD.3,4 Barber has noted that this diagnosis is suggested during the first 5 to 10 minutes of the office visit if the patient has no specific physical complaints.5
Diagnostic criteria for CSD include greater than 3 months of sensations such as nonvertiginous dizziness, lightheadedness, heavy-headedness or subjective imbalance present on most days, as well as greater than 3 months of chronic hypersensitivity to one’s own motion or the movement of objects in the environment.3,4 Complex visual stimuli, such as walking in grocery stores or shopping malls, or using a computer, characteristically exacerbate the symptoms. The physical examination is usually normal in these patients, except that hyperventilation typically reproduces their symptoms.
