VERTIGO AND DIZZINESS OFTEN ACCOMPANY MIGRAINE WITH AURA ATTACKS

October 16th, 2011

Though symptoms of dizziness and vertigo occur in the general population that doesn’t suffer with migraine attacks, there is a substantial increase in the occurrence of these symptoms, especially in people who suffer from migraines with aura.

Two studies, published in the Journal Headache in 2007 and 2011, confirm that people who suffer from migraines accompanied by aura may experience the symptoms up to 50% of the time during attacks.

Anecdotal information reported by patients indicates that some preventative options may substantially lower not only the frequency of migraines, but may lower experiencing these symptoms when attacks do occur.
