6 Signs Your Symptoms Could be a Vestibular Migraine

migraine eyeAs I’ve written about before, I have vestibular migraines, with Migraine Associated Vertigo (MAV).   It is hard to diagnose this type of migraine,it’s also very difficult to figure out if your vertigo is coming from MAV.  I came across this article the other day and thought it was worthy of sharing.

6 Signs Your Symptoms Could be a Vestibular Migraine

Following are the Symptoms they talk about, please go to the actual article to read about each of these in detail.

1. You have a personal or family history of migraine.
2. You experience vestibular symptoms in the presence or absence of a migraine headache.
3. Your vestibular symptoms vary in their severity over time.
4. In an episode, you experience other classic migraine symptoms.
5. Your symptoms increase with exposure to known migraine triggers.
6. Your vestibular symptoms significantly reduce your quality of life.

From this article there is a link to a blog post on My Migraine Brain that I found interesting. Valerie’s Vestibular Migraine

I hope you will find this as informative as I did.

If you have any questions about my experience with vestibular migraines and MAV, please ask.  I’m happy to keep the conversation going.

  1. LOVE your new header graphic – I hope the fact that you have been able to do some blog housekeeping means you are having [at least] a few better days.

    Although I haven’t had trouble with headaches (except for allergy/sinus discomfort), I found this fascinating, and may be helpful to future clients as I get back in the swing of things. I will be pinning the graphic – which, hopefully, will lead a few new people to jump here to read the article.

    1. Thanks Madelyn!!!
      I drew the graphic. 🙂 So I’m extra glad you like it.
      Still working on housekeeping my blog, getting there, updating the pages and stuff.
      I have been having some very good days. Maybe I’m going into remission for a little bit. Last one was 2 years ago, but lasted almost 4 months.
      I don’t think I’ll feel as good as I did then, but a little relief is much appreciated. 🙂

      Glad to see you over here.
      Hope that means you are feeling better.



      1. I’m feeling A BIT more motivated with a bit more energy. I’m with you on the “I’ll take it” side – with hopes for a “remission” of some length so I can finally make some headway putting the many things that feel apart back in place.

        I accepted a new client, and it always makes me feel better when I get immediate feedback that my expertise can help others – especially sans browser glitches to overcome to get an article up, with little evidence that others find what I write useful.

        DOUBLE WOW on the graphic – I wish I shared your artistic talent (if only to have something to do when I can’t make myself get up off the couch – lol)

        btw- the article you noted is excellent too – forgot to say thanks for locating it and linking to it.

        Onward and upward?
