Migraines, Dizziness, and Vertigo
Migraines can have so many symptoms; some simple, some not so simple. Among those symptoms, we often find dizziness and / or vertigo.
It's important to understand that dizzines and vertigo are not the same thing:
- Dizziness is a general sense of disequilibrium, of being off-balance.
- Vertigo is a subtype of dizziness that gives the feeling or illusion of movement.
Researchers at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, have been looking at possible symptoms of Migraine and their prevalence. In a recent study, they looked at dizziness and vertigo. The objective of their study was:
"To determine the prevalence of subjective complaints of dizziness or vertigo in Migraineurs attending a specialty headache clinic."
What were the results and implications of that study? Read more in Migraine and Prevalence of Dizziness and Vertigo.
