Answer

Celebisoy et al detected peripheral and central findings on balance function tests in 35 patients with migraine-associated vertigo. [29] Of note, 20% of these patients exhibited caloric unilateral weakness, whereas all of the migraine patients in the control group without vertigo had normal caloric testing.
