Migraine vertigo: Both migraine and labrynthitis can cause vertigo, however the pressure in the ear sensation is not normally seen with migraine. Labrynthitis can be a sudden onset very severe vertigo that can last weeks. Migrainous vertigo is usually more of a constant dizziness, and sometimes a little less severe. The neurologist should be able to distinguish between these. They also have different treatments.
