05/07/07 #2 - Migraines and vertigo, but not together?

Ask the Clinician Health Pro
  • Full Question:
    I have suffered from daily headaches and migraines for twenty-some odd years, but just lately I have started suffering from vertigo. Is vertigo related to migraines? I rarely get the two together. How is it treated? Are any of my (long long long) list of migraines medications responsible for the vertigo? Jill


    Dear Jill;

    Vertigo can be a symptom of Migraine, but if it's happening when you don't have a Migraine, it's unlikely that it's related. There's no way to tell if it could be related to any of your medications without knowing what medications you're taking. How it's treated depends on what's causing it. It's time to consult your doctor.
