Hi Anon,

Sorry to hear about your vertigo. Whenever someone has vertigo that isn't caused by damage to the inner ear, it can definitely be related to headaches or migraines or certain medications and substances.

Some Medications and Other Substances
Examples include:


If you drink or take in a lot of caffeine daily, you may want to try to cut back some to see if the dizziness gets any better.

Hope this helps,
