Thanks for posting your query.
Mild vertigo may be associated with the premenstrual syndrome. Now that your periods have started, the vertigo is likely to subside on its own.
In case the problem is persistent, then other causes do need to be ruled out like-
middle ear problem cervical spine problem, electrolyte imbalance like hyponatremia, etc. You will then need to have a personalized evaluation from your physician.
I hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
