  1. Hi
    I'm so sorry to hear about your recent diagnosis. Now that you have an accurate diagnosis you can learn all you can about it which will enable you to get the proper treatment.
    Let me share some of our resources on this type of migraine;
    Another wonderful resource is The Dizzy Cook. She lives with vestibular migraine and has a whole lot of great information here;
    Please let me know what you think and I'm sending you pain free wishes, Nancy Harris Bonk, Patient Leader/Moderator Team

    1. I have placed a order for the dizzy cookbook not a good cook but I'll try best to follow 😋 recipes

      1. Nice! I have one of her cookbooks as well - she's wonderful. I hope you keep us posted on how it goes.

    2. Good morning,
      I'm sorry you are suffering with this disease. I have migraine (diagnosed about 5 years ago)...however, about a month ago my migraines became more vestibular in nature. I'm waiting to get back into my neurologist to discuss this. However, I started taking my nurtec- that I normally use as an abortive med- every other day as a preventative med. My headaches are quite frequent. I also have meclazine for the dizzy symptoms- however, that medicine seems to make things worse. I have rizatriptan as an abortive. I am trying to pin down food triggers- but haven't come up with any yet. Do you have a medicine regime you wouldn't mind sharing? I have ear fullness/pain that goes along with the migraine- which of course adds to the vestibular issues. I will say a prayer for you! I agree the dizzycook as alot of online info.

      1. Thank you for joining the conversation and sharing your experience with us. I am sorry you deal with vestibular migraine as well. It's not uncommon to live with more than one headache/migraine type.
        I look forward to hearing more from you and am sending you pain free wishes, Nancy Harris Bonk, Patient Leader/Moderator Team
