As 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.
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.
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.
