Migraine and vertigo? #Migraine #BenignParoxysmalPositionalVertigo

Does anyone know if vertigo can be a symptom of migraine headaches? Any thoughts or experiences would be greatly appreciated and helpful. I see my doctor in September but I'm trying to get as much info as I can beforehand. Thank you 🙏

Hi, my name is TylerDurden. I'm a 53-year-old cis-het female (she/her or them), married 25 years this month, with a 21-year-old daughter. I'm here because over the last 10 to 12 years I have had overlapping disabling symptoms and disease processes that prevent me from functioning 5 to 7 days a week. if it isn't the excruciating back and leg pain, it's the 10-day long migraines, the vertigo and vomiting, or the depression and anxiety that used to be "normal" but after 10+ years of being told there is nothing wrong with me despite the major decline in bodily ability and increased and new symptoms, is a major disease of its own now.

Hi, my name is chroniclyMimi. I recently spent a week in the hospital and was diagnosed with Adrenal Insufficiency and acute renal failure. My blood pressure would drop so low I would pass out when sitting up or standing and at times was even 60s/30s at rest. I live with a slew of debilitating, chronic medical issues that have come to light over the last 13+ years, including Rheumatoid Arthritis, h-EDS, multiple orthopedic surgeries, a h/o uterine cancer, anxiety and depression to name a few. I had to retire with disability at the age of 44 from a 20+ year nursing career and I can tell you with complete certainty that it’s definitely harder to be a full time patient than the health care professionals. I usually consider myself pretty badass and I’ve learned how to adapt and live with my limitations and disabilities (except the motorized bugggy in the grocery store, I refuse to ride on one of those!!) But this most recent diagnosis has me a little concerned and scared, I understand that it is most likely due to the high dose and lengthy tapers of Prednisone I’ve had to take frequently for RA flares, as well as stress being a factor. My initial appointment with the Endocrinologist isn’t until May, so I came back to The Mighty for support from people I trust to help me understand and also guide me through how to adjust to life with this additional chronic condition .

Hi, my name is Jace_Nicolas. I've been diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), and I’m soon to see a geneticist to be diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS). I’m aware I have EDS, but I don’t know what type, so that unknown factor is what I’m currently battling.

Hi, my name is bluenoteL. I'm undiagnosed and wanting to hear from other people who might be going through similar things: muscle twitches, joint pain, muscle pain, joint hypermobility, neuropathy, fatigue, eye issues, concentration issues, hypersomnia, coordination issues, TMJ, tinnitus, vertigo, nausea, dizziness, bloating, weight loss, lack of appetite, cognitive issues.
I assume fibromyalgia or something neuromuscular as that's who I'm being referred to next, but this is over 2 months of no answers and meds that don't help much, feeling beyond hopeless. I've been turned into an idiot, and am unable to exercise or really do anything, any hobbies or anything I enjoy.
