Can Vestibular Migraines be present all the time

Posted , 5 users are following.

I'm waiting on hospital appointments and a diagnosis but does anybody know if you can suffer Vestibular Migraines all day for weeks? And would it make sense that Betahistine would eliminate the dizziness and pressure in back of head?

    Yes, and yes. It is good to see an ENT or neuro for diagnosis as you are doing. But yes, MAV can behave this way.

    Vestibular migraine is typically an intermittent disorder, characterized by episodes of vertigo which may or may not be associated with migraine, with lesser feelings inbetween.  It is an "up-and-down" disorder if you like.
