Vestibular migraine (VM) designates recurrent attacks of vertigo that are caused by migraine. VM presents with attacks of spontaneous or positional vertigo, lasting seconds to days, accompanied by migrainous symptoms.

In contrast, vestibular testing serves mainly for the exclusion of other diagnoses. Treatment is targeted at the underlying migraine.
