Balance issues

Was born deaf in left ear. In 2014 at age 38 had Sudden Sensoneureal hearing loss in right ear reversed with steroids with mild deficits and tinnitus. Always had balance issues since but recently worsened a bit. Can still exercise, walk and run most days..3 months ago had a brain MRI for migraines and vertigo which unfortunately showed white matter hyper intensities in periventricular mostly subcortical. So wonder if balance issues/ vertigo are from my ear issues or the white matter (about 18 small mm lesions)?? Also since the birth of my middle son have mild incontinence some times mostly the week before my period, or when I am nervous.
Always was an anxious person and have health anxiety now its 10 times worse.

Any thoughts on this?
