Teri...has there been any research done on people with Vestibular Migraines? I am currently reading your book, and it is very helpful, however, my situation is a little different from others. I also suffer from a vestibular disorder (inner ear) which makes taking meds a great challenge...because the meds make me more dizzy! My neurotologist suggested Botox injections for the migraines...any thoughts on this? Vicki
There has been research on symptoms such as Migraine associated vertigo, but not on "vestibular Migraines" per se as that is not a form of Migraine recognized in the International Headache Society's International Classification of Headache Disorders, 2nd Edition, the gold standard for diagnosing and classifying Migraine and other headache disorders.
Since "regular" medications make you dizzy, Botox may be a good choice. Of course, there's no way to know if it will help you with Migraine prevention until you try it. Hopefully, it will be very helpful.
Please keep me posted?
