TUESDAY, Aug. 2, 2022 (HealthDay News) — Vestibular symptoms, including dizziness and vertigo, are associated with an increased risk of migraine, according to a study published online June 30 in Frontiers in Neuroscience.

Tongxiang Diao, Ph.D., of Peking University in Beijing, and colleagues examined the association between different vestibular symptoms and migraine and non-migraine headaches using a questionnaire to survey nurses in a tertiary care hospital. A total of 708 people were classified into three groups: without headache, with migraine and without headache. General physical status and the incidence of different vestibular symptoms were compared between groups.

Of the individuals, 233 (28.7 percent) had headaches, including 94 cases of migraine (13.3 percent); 235 cases had vestibular symptoms. The researchers found that independent factors related to headache, especially migraine, included dizziness and vertigo. In the group with vertigo, the risks of migraine and other types of headaches were 2,808 and 2,526 times greater than those in the group without vertigo, respectively, while the risks in the group with dizziness were 8,248 and 5,732 times greater than those in the group with dizziness. group without dizziness, respectively.

“Different vestibular symptoms were all closely related to migraine, among which dizziness and vertigo were significantly related. Compared with patients with vertigo, patients with dizziness were more likely to be accompanied by migraine,” the authors write. “This suggested that when diagnosing vestibular migraine according to current criteria, some patients with vestibular symptoms other than vertigo might be missed.”
