Objectives: Pathologies of the vestibular system influence MSS. Bilateral vestibular deficits lower MSS, vestibular neuritis or benign paroxysmal positional vertigo have little overall effect, whereas vestibular migraine elevates MSS. However, less is known about MSS in MD, a condition in which many patients experience vestibular loss and migraine symptoms.

Conclusion: Elevated Motion Sickness Susceptibility (MSS) in Meniere’s disease (MD) is likely to be a consequence of the onset of MD and not migraine per se.
