... I agree with violet..the hormones the first 3 months kill you. I bet it will get better. After you give birth I would go to a neurotologist and get on some migraines meds. ... (10 replies)
... Congratulations, Lauren! :) That really is wonderful news. I am so sorry that you are feeling dizzier. I am thinking that maybe after the first three months that that will subside...? The first trimester is often super difficult b/c of nausea and fatigue, and just getting used to the hormones. I believe I have heard that migraines in general can worsen at the beginning and...

... Hi there, iep--
I'm wondering if your docs have ruled out inner ear disorders, using tests like ENG, rotary chair, etc. Another option to consider is checking into your hormonal levels; I've been advised by members on this board that low or fluctuating hormones can cause dizziness and other symptoms in women(perimenopausal issues). Migraine can also cause dizziness and... (10 replies)

... Unfortunately it is impossible to conclude that the levels of progesterone are the issue.. the article simply shows that in women with migraine-associated vertigo there is a polymorphism (error) in one of the genes that codes for the progesterone receptor (PGR in the article). Similarly when you hear people talking about 'too much serotonin' and 'too little serotonin', it is... (16 replies)

... Hi everyone,
I'm new to this forum and very thankful I found this online. I have had an unofficial diagnosis of BPPV for the past three years, but have managed to live with it for the most part as it usually only happened when I turned on my right side or lied down flat on my back. Lately, however, I've been experiencing spontaneous dizziness that is not related to a... (21 replies)
... please post what you find out. I am suspecting a migraine vertigo diagnosis when I see neurologist in about 3 weeks. I am also suspecting hormones have a major role in my problem. I was reading a book called "What your Doctor May NOT tell you about Premenopause" by Dr. Lee. ... (8 replies)
... I have been taking magnesium for almost two months now. I started when I was going through some of my books on Natural Cures in relation to Vertigo. More than one of them said that Vertigo is sometimes caused by a Magnesium deficiency. So I decided to give it a try.

... appening. And it's not like spinning dizzies, but rather a very foggy, spacey sort of feeling. I read an old post by hbep that also confirmed some link between hormones and problems for people with vestib issues. I think it's also a known that people with migraines can get that spacey, dizzy feeling too as an aura. ... (21 replies)

... Hi there centaur
I also believe that vertigo could well be related to hormones.
I first had a spell of Labs 1990 when 6 weeks pregnant with my son.
It passed after 6/7 weeks.
I then developed migraines with aura 1992 - 12 migraines in 4 months which then disappeared! (Hormonal changes maybe)
No problems during my pregnancy with my daughter though!
Now in the... (21 replies)

... ASLme, thanks for your input and info! I've read a little about MAV and should look into it more. I have always been a migraine sufferer (about 2 times a week), but during the pregnancy they disappeared (thank goodness because I wouldn't dare take my migraine medicine while pregnant). Everyone keeps telling me that it's probably alot to do with hormones, which I'm sure it... (3 replies)
