Homeopathic Treatment for Vestibular Migraine

What is vestibular migraine and the reason behind it?

A vestibular migraine refers to vertigo episodes in persons having a history of migraine ( one-sided headache most times attended with nausea, vomiting). A person having it feels as if he is revolving or the surrounding objects are revolving. Head movement worsens vertigo. It is different from migraines because it doesn’t involve a headache. The exact cause behind vestibular migraine is not known yet. But it is thought to arise when a vestibular system in the ear (that controls the body’s balance) is affected in a person having a history of migraine. It is thought to run in families. There are certain risk factors that can trigger it. These factors include sleep loss, food like MSG (monosodium glutamate), coffee, chocolate, caffeine, stress, anxiety, and weather changes.

What are its symptoms?

Spontaneous episodes of vertigo, dizziness is the major symptom of it. Other symptoms that may attend include the feeling of imbalance, motion sickness, nausea, and vomiting. In some cases, pressure feeling in head, noises in the ear (tinnitus), neck pain, and visual complaints (likes blurred vision, spots or flashes of light before eyes ), sensitivity to light and noise are present. The duration of an episode of vestibular migraines varies from few seconds to minutes and rarely for a day or two.
