Re: undiagnosed vertigo

I gave been seeing a neurologist. He "personally does not believe this is migraine associated vertigo". But I did go to the eye dr. today and he thinks this may be visual associated vertigo. I am going in again tomorrow for more diagnostic work up. Keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks for your responses though.

I would discuss the possibility of MAV with your doctor and get a referral to a neurologist if necessary. There are special medications which have been quite successful in treating MAV.
