We examined the coexistence of hearing, vision, and balance/coordination/dizziness symptoms reported by Operations Iraqi Freedom/Enduring Freedom veterans who completed an evaluation for traumatic brain injury (TBI). This multisensory impairment was more common among veterans with a number of characteristics, including those with a history of mild TBI, posttraumatic stress disorder, and both blast and nonblast injuries during deployment. Veterans who report these symptoms would likely benefit from referrals to a team of providers so that symptoms can be properly identified. This will help providers develop a treatment plan to help veterans readjust to civilian life.
