A migraine that includes symptoms of vertigo will often feel similar to a traditional migraine. You could have:

Not all people experience head pain during migraine with vertigo episodes, so you may only have vertigo symptoms. You could also have nausea, which could be related to either migraine or vertigo. In the article published by Thomas Lempert et al in May 21, 2009 edition of Annals of New York Academy of Sciences: Vertigo as a Symptom of Migraine. Migraine and vertigo are common disorders, affecting about 14% and 10%, respectively, of the general population. If migraine and vertigo were unrelated, the expected comorbidity would be 1%, whereas recent epidemiological studies indicate that 3.2% of the population have both migraine and vertigo. The article further describes that excess comorbidity may be attributed to two factors: 1) vertigo syndromes (including Menière’s disease, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, and anxiety-related dizziness) that are more common in migraineurs than in controls and 2) vestibular migraine (VM) (vertigo as a symptom of migraine.) Vestibular Migraine presents with attacks of spontaneous or positional vertigo lasting seconds to days. Headaches are often absent during acute attacks, but other migrainous features such as photophobia or auras may be present. Like migraine headaches, Vestibular Migraine triggers include stress, sleep deprivation, and hormonal changes.
