Could Your Migraine Be Causing Vertigo?
Have you been experiencing dizzy spells alongside your headache, or any vision problems? This can often be the sign of migraine associated vertigo, also known as vestibular migraine.
The problem with this type of migraine is that it often goes undiagnosed or is misunderstood by medical professionals. Vestibular migraine requires expert diagnosis by a professional who is experienced and trained specifically in headache diagnosis and treatment. Fortunately, that's exactly what we offer here at the New Jersey Headache Institute and we will help you find the right treatment quickly.
Are You Suffering from Vestibular Migraine? What Are the Symptoms?
You may not realize you are suffering from migraine associated vertigo, but our handy checklist below might be able to uncover some answers for you.
Here are the possible symptoms you are experiencing:
- extreme motion sensitivit
On their own, these symptoms are bad enough, but to experience them all at the same time can be unbearable. What’s more, if you have a job where you operate heavy machinery or if you are driving a vehicle, you may need to take a break until the vertigo symptoms pass. This will ensure you protect your own safety and the safety of others.
How to Manage and Treat Vestibular Migraine
There is some good news for sufferers of this condition—most cases of migraine associated vertigo can be treated using just conventional treatments and remedies. We will design a treatment plan that fits your symptoms, pain and lifestyle perfectly and which relieves you from the worry of vertigo and the chronic pain your headaches are causing.
Our research into headaches and migraines is ongoing, and one thing we have noticed about vestibular migraine is that attacks are often experienced after eating and drinking trigger foods and beverages such as caffeine, red wine, chocolate and citrus fruits. Of course, the easiest thing to do is to avoid these altogether and eliminate them from your diet.
