Migraine with dizziness

I've been having migraine headaches since 10th std, accompanied by dizziness. The migraine headaches have come down now, but dizziness persists. Generally, it occurs when I change position, either from sitting to standing, or lying down to getting up, or moving from a brighter to darker place, and vice versa. My vision becomes completely blank or hazy, and I lose balance. It lasts only for a matter of seconds. This has been going on for almost 8 years now, and nobody has been able to diagnose exactly what the problem is and suggest the right treatment. Kindly advise.

Hello, dizziness is a part of migraine condition since there is no complete treatment for migraine or associated dizziness it feels like a troubling disease, there are many preventive medications are available to avoid migraine headaches, consult a neurologist. And also postural hypotension which causes dizziness when you are wake up suddenly from sitting or lying down position in this BP appears normal in sitting position but decrease nearly upto 20mmhg when measured immediately after standing, don't worry which is also not a serious condition. Please visit a neurologist to check for these.
