I realize it’s been discussed before that VM is a newer name for disorders that have existed and perhaps been called by other names. But I am really wondering about something… Did VM (or the collection of symptoms that we all seem to suffer) exist 2 or 3 generations ago? I realize that typical migraine did with it’s unusual associated symptoms. But I wonder about this “chronic” VM, because in talking to my mom and dad who are in late 70s, they don’t recall these types of disorders (regardless of name) back in their day. My mom does suffer atypical migraine attacks like strokes, which is no fun! But they are rare events, and she’s never struggled with any level of chronic dizziness.
I’m just curious if VM is a more “modern” disorder. Have any researchers looked into or discussed this aspect?
