has anyone experienced painless migraine with vertigo?  i have suffered from vertigo several times a year lasting about 3 days each episode.  after seeing ENT, hearing tests, mri, etc. i was sent to a neurologist who is treating these as possible migraines. 
anyone that can share their experiences would be most appreciated.

I don't get headaches with my migraine symptoms. One of them is vertigo. It can be triggered by change in pressure of the room such as the act of turning on an air conditioner, certain room heaters, or change in weather. It usually lasts all day, but I did have two spells where it lasted for weeks. During these spells I could hear my heartbeat in my ear and sometimes I hear ringing.

My new neurologist thinks it could be migraines because my symptoms progress slowly over a few minutes to hours. If it was sudden it could be due to seizures.

I take meclizine as a rescue with great effect. Amitryptyline and topamax were ineffective as preventatives. I am currently trying nortripyline.
