    I had the same experience for the last 3 months. Vertigo, headache, muscle spasm, anxiety you name it. Two neurologist diagnosed me with vestibular migrane. I was prescribed sebelium 5 mg. It helped a little bit with the headache but not with the dizziness. I was not so convinced that it was the migrane ( i have had migrane for 20 years and i know the symtoms) . So i started googling and i noticed that most of the symtoms were connected with vitamin B12. I did some blood test and was border line deficit 256. Now i know that if you go to the doctor they will say you are within limit ( 200 to 1100). But the funny think is that the limit is controversial. So i started to take b12 500 iu per day in the form of methylcobalamine which is natural not synthetic. My symptoms have improved drastically in just one week. It is a very important vitamin that is overlooked from the doctors. A blood test might help. And if your doctor does not agree keep looking until you find somebody willing to listen. I did because i came upon a great film titled Could it be B12. I dont now how it will go but finally in almost 4 months i am feeling better.

    yes. I definitely get vertigo. Your doctor can prescribe something for it – I can’t remember the name, but it’s a drug that they give for altitude sickness. At one point I was getting vertigo so badly that I had to take the train to work so I didn’t crash my car. It eventually stopped occurring as much with my migraines but it is very debilitating.
