I have suffered  famial hemiplegic migraine for 26 years.
 My last attack had no hemiplegia just intense vertago. I have symptoms of nerve irritation inside one ear which causes terrible itching and tingling. I have just developed tinittus which seams to be getting worse. None of my family who suffer hemiplegic migrains have had this. My neuro just puts it down to the migraines but I disagree. On the other side of my family I have hearing loss not associated with migraine. Im wondering if anyone else out there with migraine has had ear or hearing damage.

I have not had my hearing checked, but it sounds like something we should be doing! If you have a family history you will definitely want to get in and check it out.

At this point there are so many things involved with/accompanying head pain (depression, fibro, IBS, stoke) that I would not say that  hearing issues/loss can't be one of them!

Diagnosing and acknowledging the presence of migraine and coexisting conditions are important steps toward developing a successful migraine management program. It is important to realize that there are two or more conditions that treatment and to work with the physician to develop a plan that is compatible with your lifestyle. Diagnosing and appropriately managing migraine and coexisting medical conditions are also important because many health conditions can increase the frequency or severity of migraine attacks. If you can gain control over the coexisting condition, the migraine attacks may lessen in frequency or severity. In addition, some medicine can treat both conditions at the same time.

I also have vertigo, severe tinnitus and hearing loss. This all happened in the last 2 1/2 yrs.

My episodes are related to my hormones though. Not taken any migraine meds, but will start some bio identical progesterone to see if it helps.

Hi Peacesoul,

So it sounds like Migraine associated vertago?

Were you, or are you also a sufferer of hemiplegic migraine? If so, do you think the two are connected in any way. Im trying to figure if my new vertago attacks are a variation of the same condition or a seperate one. My mothers hemiplegic migraines have never changed to vertago attacks and my sister is now reporting the same sympoms as me and has never suffered migraine.

Thanks for the posts.

Hi everyone!! I´ve just read that the Basilar migraine can give you tinnitus and also loss of hearing ( going deaf ) and when i read it i remembered that someone asked about it. I too have FHM and have read everything i can come over of this disease, and often i too find much about basilar so...... I also no that some people have both FHM and Basilar or HM and Basilar, but the treatments are still the same of course, but can be interesting to no all symptoms that theese two give.

I have discovered that almost the only thing that separates theese two in symptoms are the hearing thing with tinnitus and some going deaf.

hope this can help!! Hope you all to bee migraine free!!! / Sweden
