    Hi Jacqueline,

    I used to suffer so much, and the best one for me was Betahistine (or SERC16) - ask your gp to prescribe it - after taking this my symptom stop straight away

    Did you ever ask your consultant to have your spine (head and back) scan/MRI?, I thought I have Vestibular Migraine, but in the end Betahistine di not work for me, and I went to Topiramate - which is even stronger then SERC16 - but after sometime it was not working, after having scan/MRI - they found out I have got Chiari malformation instead - so I have got surgery 18 months ago..now all that vertigo and migraine, dizzyness, inbalance all gone after surgery

      I've had a head scan and they found an Aracnoid Cyst on the right side of my brain - which the Neurologist said might be causing some inbalance..but wont do anything with it....I have now started with an inflamed cuff on my right shoulder, which I'm certain is coming from my neck/head....but what can you do when they know better!!!

      Where do you live - can you not get 2nd opinion? I live in the UK, lucky enough my gp and neurologist were very honest, sent me to Neurosurgeon - and advice to have surgery ...it started like VM and they though it was meniere disease...please get 2nd opinion...

    I have a question about vestibular migraine.

    Does the vertigo cause vestibular migraine? 

    Or does having vestibular migraine cause vertigo? 

    Or does it go either way?
