The headaches, which had been absent several weeks, returned with the vertigo, recurring intermittently during that 6-week period, often very intense. The vertigo has finally stopped, but the headaches are more persistent. Both an ENT and a PT were not able to elicit nystagmus for testing of BPPV, (nor did Epley maneuvers help), and I had an MRI, which was negative. So I am suspecting the vertigo was migraine induced.
