A common bothersome neurological symptom is dizziness and vertigo. A person may experience a sensation of spinning that may be associated with nausea.
When dizziness occurs before, after, or during a migraine, a person may be diagnosed with vestibular migraine.
Accompanying symptoms may include sensitivity to light and noise.
Triggers for vestibular migraines may be similar to migraine triggers and may include stress, lack of exercise, bright lights, and loud noises.
There are other disorders that are more common in people with vestibular migraines including motion sickness and anxiety. DIzziness and vertigo may also be the result of other underlying disorders so diagnostic testing including bloodwork and VNG may be indicated.
If you feel you are suffering from vestibular migraines, call The Manhattan Center for Headache and Neurology and speak with one of our caring healthcare providers.
