Age of the patient? Any H/o whiplash or head/neck trauma? Duration of vertigo and headache once the episode starts? Any relation to specific activity? Does vertigo precedes headache? Any h/o migraine headaches in the past? Drug Hx? Rule out any anxiety/worry/depression/sleeplessness that patient has not been attributing his/her symptoms to. Long term betahistine and cinnarizine cause disequilibrium problem as the internal ear becomes more dependent on them. Better to avoid. Adv: Physiotherapy/ENT referral.

How old is the patient? Needs more history. Vertigo is associated with head ache or not.Both in young or muddle aged pt ,one has to think the possibility of basilar artery migraine. Duration of both is important. Brief duration seconds to mts one has to exclude a seizure disorder.. Vertigo and head independent, the possibility of benign paroxysmal Vertigo with or with out migeaine.All these needs good history.

Why no treatment is given here for headache? You can add Analgesic to Betahistine+Cinnarizine. R/o Posterior circulation stroke. Look for Ataxia/Neurological signs. ECG, RBS has to be done. R/o orthostatic hypotension.

first of all this is not vertigo.. any sensation of dizziness is not vertigo. clinical history is very important..patient may be having anxiety and stress
