In 1999, this term was coined to describe dizziness that is accompanied by a migraine. This type of dizziness is categorized as the second most common cause of vertigo—a spinning sensation—following benign positional vertigo.

When one thinks of a migraine, it is more-than-likely associated with nausea and/or vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, and visual disturbances. However, a large majority of people also have dizziness as a symptom, which can last from a few minutes to an entire day. This greatly impacts a person’s life.

What Vestibular Migraines Are Not

Vestibular migraines are not basilar migraines. Basilar migraines are known for:

  • Slurred speech
  • Changes in hearing
  • Double vision
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Sensory changes
  • Clumsiness

Vestibular migraines are also not Meniere’s disease. This condition causes both vertigo and ringing in the ears but is not the same as a vestibular migraine. However, Meniere’s does put its sufferers at risk for migraines. This leads researchers to conclude that there is a common reason for both conditions.

Help for Vestibular Migraines, Vertigo, and Meniere’s Disease

A link has been established between a misalignment in the upper cervical spine and the occurrence of migraines and dizziness, such as occurs along with vestibular migraines and Meniere’s disease. At Tranquility Spinal Care, we focus on making sure the atlas and axis bones—the top vertebrae of the neck—are in proper alignment. If not, we use a gentle method that helps these bones to realign without the need to pop or crack the spine or neck. The nervous system can function better when a person has a healthy upper neck. One or two adjustments is often all that is needed to see migraines and dizziness improve and possibly go away.
