Vertigo and menopause
Has anyone heard of vertigo being associated with menopause?  I have had hearing tests, test to try to start the vertigo, a CT and MRI both clear.  My vertigo starts almost exactly the same time as my menstrual cycle.  The vertigo is severe, I have severe nausea and once it is over which the nausea last about 12 hours and the dizziness can last up to 5 days.  Any information would be great I am at wits end.

Hello~yes, vertigo can most certainly be caused by menopause, perimenopause and also having your period. When our hormones fluctuate, they can throw our bodies into a tail spin, and this in turn can cause all kinds of problems, no fun for sure.

Have you discussed this with your gyn? I would also suggest a good, bio-identical progesterone cream. Bio-identical means the same as our body makes and it is very safe. You can get the cream at any health food store or on line. There are many good ones on the market, but the ones I like the best are yam based, there are some that are soy based, but, some folks, like myself, are allergic to soy. Make sure the jar says "pharmaceutical grade progesterone" I think this will help and it will help with our menopausal symptoms too.
