Migraine Variant Vertigo

About a third of persons having migraine might develop imbalance and dizziness. In many, this dizziness is not always necessarily accompanied with a headache unlike classical migraine. The cause is due to altered blood flow in the inner ear originating from the base of the skull.

The manifestations of migraine-associated vertigo are quite varied and may include episodic true vertigo, positional vertigo, constant imbalance, movement-associated dysequilibrium and imbalance. The vestibular system may show weakness on testing.

Medicines during active disease followed by rehabilitation of the vestibular system often leads to very good outcome especially in children.
