Hi there, please see your doctor. This symptom can be a sign of a TIA or stroke affecting left side of your brain causing symptoms on your right side.

Look up and discuss with your doctor if you heart medication amiodarone could be causing the balance problem. That is a very potent drug which causes serious sided effects in some people,

I hope too you are taking some form of an anticoagulant, if only a aspirin. Clotting of the blood  is a major concern for atrial fibrillation.
