Customer Question

Hi - I have been diagnosed with Vestibular Migraines (VM) and suffer from a variety of symptoms including migraine headaches, auras, vertigo, dizziness, tinnitus, hearing loss, etc. One of the most frustrating symptoms I live with is brain fog or what some call cognitive clouding or cognitive dysfunction.....before I had VM I never had these symptoms before........I read an article at the VEDA website about the cognitive aspects of vestibular disorders and it seemed to make sense....
Can I ask if it is likely to be the same general mechanism that causes such cognitive clouding in my case of VM......

yes, I agree that your vesticular migraines is causing your brain fog and cognitive clouding
