Migraine and Vertigo

Migraine is a disorder usually associated with headache. Although it can affect the whole head, it usually occurs on one side only. It is characterized by throbbing and associated with symptoms that may include nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound. Flashes or patterns before the eyes may precede the headache. Symptoms may also include vertigo and imbalance.

Migraine can be associated with benign recurrent vertigo of adults (not to be confused with BPPV), paroxysmal vertigo of childhood, motion sickness, and other vestibular disturbances.

Stress, anxiety, hypoglycemia, fluctuating estrogen, certain foods, smoking and other factors can trigger migraine. Physicians treat vertigo and imbalance from migraine by reducing these risk factors. Treatment may also involve medications.
