- Genetic conditions (NF2, EVA, CANVAS Syndrome, etc)
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Autoimmune inner ear disorder
- Ototoxicity (Aspirin and quinine, loop diuretics, aminoglycoside antibiotics, antineoplastic medications, environmental toxins (lead, mercury, etc)
- Migraine-associated vertigo (vestibular migraine)
- Persistent postural perceptual dizziness (CSD)
- Benign positional proximal vertigo (BPPV)
- Pre or post cochlear implant patients
- Diabetes (with neuropathy)
