Vestibular Migraine Triggers

It's important to identify if your migraines are affected by any specific triggers. We have listed some of the most common triggers below but everyone is different. Be patient in trying to identify your triggers and ensure your Doctor has insight into any changes you are making. Use our free Doctor template here for support.

01 Screen Time & Lights


You might have heard of Blue Light. This is the light omitted from computer screens, phones and TVs. Long screen time can cause a strain on the eyes which can lead to Vestibular Migraine spells.

04 Stress


Stress is often the trigger to almost everything from heart attacks to headaches. On this site we have proven resources to help reduce stress such as yoga and dieting.

07 Alcohol


Red wine, champagne, and rum have links to triggering traditional migraine symptoms. Some of our readers have found reduced symptoms with vodka. We recommend reducing your alcohol intake. 

02 Diet


Chocolate, Gluten, Dairy, Citrus, MSG and Aspartame all carry warning signs for Vestibular Migraine. Start a food diary and let's see if there is a particular type of food whichs sets you off. 

05 Caffeine


Caffeine linked to chocolate and coffee are known triggers. Some of our readers claim coffee helps in the short term but rebound side effects come back strong! Coffee Challenge!

08 Missing Meals


Linked to low blood sugar & type 2 diabetes, missing meals is not somthing you want for your body. Ensure you stick to a good eating routine and see our safe snacks list. 

03 Sleep


Late nights, early wakes and  any period of prolonged inconsistent sleep cycles are known to trigger migraine symptoms. The official figure is debated but it's generally recommended to have around 7 hours sleep a night. 

06 Exercise


Exercise can trigger traditional Vestibular Migraine symptoms. Some think this can be linked to the bodies flight/fight response. Take is slow and try VRT and Yoga

09Additives & Nitrates


Fizzy drinks, process meats (like hot dogs and burgers), and a lot of sauces  include many

preservatives. Bacteria breaks down this food into nitrates which can trigger migraines.
