Musician Janet Jackson was recently in the news for interrupting her music tour due to attacks of vestibular migraine, a rare form of migraine marked by dizziness as its primary symptom, rather than pain.
Migraine sufferers often experience dizziness, but vestibular migraines are much different than regular migraines. The attacks of dizziness, which can make an individual feel as though he or she is spinning, rocking or moving in some way, can come on suddenly and be accompanied by several other symptoms, including extreme sensitivity to light, sound and motion, nausea, hearing loss and weakness in the extremities. Some people also develop a chronic form of vestibular migraine and experience a constant sense of dizziness.
