Answer

Using multivariate analysis, the aforementioned study by Foremeister et al found that risk factors for the development of migraine-associated vertigo include age less than 40 years, female sex, anxiety, depression, and previous head trauma. [12]

Similarly, a retrospective study by Hilton et al indicated that in persons with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, independent risk factors for migraine as a comorbidity include female sex, a prior history of this form of vertigo, younger age, and the absence of diabetes. [21]
