Does anyone with Vestibular Disorder also have poor circulation and heart palpitation

I've been diagnosed with a vestibular disorder as of about a year and a half ago. I've been looking for a diagnosis because I started suffering from migraines and extreme fatigue since about 12/13 (a few years after I hit puberty.)

Along with those symptoms I've had poor circulation. My feet and hands are always freezing cold to where I usually can't feel them. People who touch my hands have to point out how cold they are.

Anyways, a long with that I have sputtering in my neck vain and fluttering and palpitations in my heart.

I also get dizziness from standing up fast. I use to think it was BPPV, but my new neuro-otologist said they didn't see any signs of BPPV.

I know for sure my inner ears aren't functioning correctly because the tests say so. But I'm wondering if maybe my inner ear isn't functioning correctly because of poor blood flow.

Anyways, I'm just wondering if maybe with the vestibular disorder it can cause other problems to be off, or if it's the other way around, maybe something can be causing the vestibular disorder.

This is a good question and something I've wondered myself. I have cold hands and heart palps. But my EKG always comes back normal. I think though that it maybe a different test that checks for blood flow.

Re: Does anyone with Vestibular Disorder also have poor circulation and heart palpita

I get palpatations and hot flushes but then Im menopausal since diagnosing me with labrythitus the doc has put me on a mild beta blocker because my pulse rate was so high. He didnt really elaborate but the inner ear controls the anxiety bit in your brain so maybe that has something to do with it. I have been given betahistine which is a drug they give to people with Menieres desease which elevates the pressure in my head. It says in the blurb that they dont quite know why but it seems to help. So blood flow obviously has some part in it.
I think the range of symptoms this ailment can cause is so diverse that anything is possible I do get strange sensations in my feet but they aren't particularly cold.
I dont know if any of this helps hope so
