Migraine associated dizziness, vestibular Meniere’s, and vertiginous migraine are just a few names you might have heard. These names are all synonymous with vestibular migraine. Similar to a headache or migraine, however, a vestibular migraine is when an individual experiences migraine symptoms along with dizziness or feeling off-balance and sensory disturbances (such as visual changes, difficulty speaking, tingling in arms and legs).
A referral to an otolaryngologist for vestibular migraines is common as symptoms overlap with inner ear and balance disorders (e.g., BPPV, Meniere’s). A neurologist may also be referred. About 50% of migraineurs go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.
Management of vestibular migraines may include avoiding triggers (food, lifestyle and environmental modifications), medication, physical therapy (retraining the brain to common sensory triggers).
