Hi everyone! New to this page. I was referred here. I was diagnosed with vestibular migraines a couple years back. Still unsure that’s the problem though as I have issues in my cervical spine and have for years and imaging has proved it.
I’ve seen a neurologist, neuro-opthalmoligist, 2 different ENT’s, my PCP, chiropractor, PT/MT. The two ENT’S, PT/MT and chiropractor thought I had “cervogenic dizziness” or issues with the craniocervical/cervical spine causing my symptoms which after reading a lot and my symptoms- I agree, but there is some sort of headache trigger there as well. NOTE: My ears have been ruled out as a source of vestibular dysfunction. 2 brain scans did not show anything either.
My symptoms are: Neck pain (chronic) all on right side (right upper side below skull and behind ear and lower right side C5-C6 daily - I have a moderate sized bulging disc) and i get lightheadedness (NOT vertigo), disoriented, feel off-balance- feel kind of tipsy, brain fog, leg weakness, fatigued, blurred vision at times and sometimes with headache and sometimes without headache along with some nausea here and there. Anyone else have these same symptoms??? I feel like this daily now. Something is not right. Is it possible to be having a vestibular migraine every single day??
I’ve asked others what their vestibular migraines symptoms are and they never sound the same to me or as my symptoms. It’s been quite frustrating. I’ve been dealing with this for over 3 years! Need help. Need answers.
I’m just wondering if they are for sure “vestibular migraines” or these are all from my neck??? Please let me know what your symptoms are? What/who helped you? Medications you take that have helped? I’m nervous to take medication for this. Hate all those crazy side effects.
Appreciate your responses!
