Can migraine headaches cause dizziness? Do migraines cause dizziness or can normal headaches cause this as well? .

Yes. Migraines affects the brain..So dizziness can be related to the migraine or it can be caused by the medicines(triptans) taken for treating the migraine.
Yes. A not uncommon symptom involves a paroxysmal vertigo which may or may not occur at time of headache. Need to sort out causation, but often, using migraine preventative therapy, eliminates both headaches and dizziness.
