A vestibular migraine is a migraine that is associated with vestibular symptoms. Migraines usually precede the vestibular symptoms.

Symptoms include vertigo, tinnitus and possible temporary hearing loss, auras (visual disturbances that can include flashing lights or blind spots), light sensitivity and loss of balance. 

One of the best things you can do to avoid migraines is to avoid your triggers. It may take some time to adjust your life to figure out what may cause these triggers. Some common triggers include heat, stress, and lack of sleep or food. Others have noted chocolate, alcohol, smoking, artificial sweeteners, MSG, and contraceptives as triggers.
