Have you tried to aim in their direction?

Your theory has provable known facts attached. How are your sinuses? Sinuses filled with mucus can interact with the middle-ear (at least I think it’s the middle-ear) and affect balance. Having your eyes not working with each other can also do that—certainly made me dizzy around stairs. I’m also rather clumsy at times, and my ankles are too loose now and then: I’ll go to put my foot down, and my foot has turned under itself. Did it yesterday. Hate it.
