Spinning in place.

Vertigo, that is one of my symptoms, a real scary one. Before I got my migraines under control I was having constant vertigo.

I would have attacks that would strike out of the blue while I was driving down the interstate at 60 miles an hour. Talk about scary. I was afraid I would have to quit my job since I could not drive. Then I found a neurologist who listen and told me that I was having migraines. This is after spending so much time and money on other Doctors.

My triggers, alcohol, ( I had just one glass of white wine this weekend and had a very bad spell.)

Weather changes, foods with MSG, and high in sodium. caffeine, citrus fruit, ( the last time I had a orange the vertigo was so bad my husband had to come and bring me home from work) Any type of processed meat.

What helps, mega doses of vitamen B2, eating regular meals, getting enough sleep.

    I thought I had thing under control with my migraines. However this past month the weather has been wild. Now they are back and hitting me hard.
    I had a bad spell of vertigo this a.m. while getting ready for work. It came on so suddenly. I still went to work and only lasted a hour before I had to leave. I felt so guilty about leaving work. However, I knew if I pushed it too hard I would be unable to drive the 20 miles back to my home.
    My doctor is now suggesting botox, has anyone had any positive results in using it for migraines with vertigo?

    I have the same thing the last one was 2 months ago. Was in the hospital for 3 days. Chocolate does it for me. Vertigo with migraine is pure evil. Glad to know I’m not alone. Makes me very anxii

    Vertigo is not just “dizzy spells” it is aweful and when it is combined with a migraine, all you want it to do is stop!
