I am new to this board and I have been recently diagnosed with vestibular migraines.
One of my primary symptoms is that when I roll over in bed I break out in a profuse sweat. Sometimes I feel queezy too. It also happens when I move around in the day - sometimes as much as 20 times a day. This can last for weeks. My left ear feels stuffy and I feel like I am in a fog. My left eye bothers me, feels tired, occasionally blurry and just feels like it is not "keeping up". I do not, however, have classic vertigo with everything spinning around (thank god). The dizziest I feel is as though I just got off an amusement park ride. While my symptoms might suggest BPV, two ENTs have ruled it out and both agree it is not an inner ear problem. One ENT and my neurologist both think it is vestibular migraine, though I am having some more tests done. (Other ENT simply thought it was something neurological outside the ear). Am wondering has anyone had the sweating and or vestibular migraine without severe vertigo?? Am also wondering if anyone has experienced any form of seizures with their vestibular migraines? Thanks.

i guess i will start from the beginning. I began having 'weird' episodes of being off-balanced and nauseated from age 16-17. I was in HS; I am now 37. I was stumped and began going to see an ENT thinking i had an inner ear infection. He basically laughed at me and said there is no way to check for that. so i had to 'ride out' the symptoms until next time. The next time was in college. It was a very memorable episode. I woke up with the strangest feeling of not being able to stand up. i felt as if my movements were extremely magnified. I noticed that it was ONLY if i moved my head. if i were to lie still and look around with my eyes, i would not notice anything was wrong. well the episode in college made me run into walls. i tried to take a shower and when i leaned my head back i threw up. then every movement of my head after that made me vomit. It was awful and sooooo scary! i then went to another ENT in college who diagnosed me with meniere's disease. So thinking that is what i had, i knew i just had to deal with the episodes when i got one. I went a year or two without having another one. i think i had a couple more in college. When i graduated i had one or two more so i decided to get another opinion. I then went to a neurologist who told me meniere's as well. i went probably another five years without any problems. i had a couple but nothing to really worry about. my episodes would last for weeks continuous (the feeling was tolerable, but i noticed it very much--it just wasn't severe enough to make me vomit). i would tolerate these continuous symptoms til one day i would wake up and it was debilitating. if i would move my head a millimeter, i would throw up. i would run into things and just be so off balance that any movement would make me sick. walking made me feel like a bobble head. all of my head movements were just SO magnified, but the room is never spinning like regular vertigo. I was pregnant once and never had one problem during the pregnancy. after i gave birth...about a year later...i had another really hideous episode. i tolerated it for quite some time but knew the big one would hit eventually. it did...i had taken a flight to boston for work and a day after the flight is when it happened. i couldn't leave my hotel room and was mortified that i wouldn't get better in time to leave! well, the very next day i was much better. i little nauseous but not terrible. i have been to numerous doctors...ents, neurologists, the balance center, neurotologists, etc.....everyone seems to be clueless. i have been diagnosed with vestibular migraines but only for them to say...but migraines don't last that long! so what is it??? reading what some of you have written really makes me think it's what it is. it is terrible. does this sound familiar at all to any of you? i want to know i'm not totally alone!!!! it seems to have everything to do with hormones...i took lexapro & then celexa for a year and haven't had a problem. the meds made me numb to everything so i wanted to try something new. big mistake...i was prescribed pamelor and it triggered an episode! i am now off of that and on wellbutrin since thurs...hope it works. thanks to anyone who responds!

I hope this is allowed. There is a Meneire's forum that also discusses Migraine Associated Vertigo here: The link will take you to "my living room" where folks discuss the terrible vertigo, MAV and other aspects of Meneire's Disease, aka MM. Or just do a search for may answer many questions for you. VK
