Can migraines and the rapid heart rate cause dizziness?

My daughter is 16 years old weighhs about 120 and is 5 4 tall. She has recently been having headaches and dizziness. She fainted a few times during this. Her heart rate is about 120 to 142. Doctors have ran all kind of test.They have did 2 CAT scan, MRI of the brain, 3 EKG s, eyeball ultrasound, plenty of blood work, and urine test. All came back okay except One neuro said that there was a small tiny spot on the MRI image that he considers it migraines. She has been in the hospital for 4 days. They have been treating her for migraines. The EKG was fine except that her heart was racing. The doctor is releasing her today with 2 prescriptions, one is depakote for migraines and one to reduce her heart rate. She is still complaining that her head hurts and she is still dizzy. I guess my question is Can the migraines and the rapid heart rate make her dizzy all the time?

No, it won’t. You should start the prescribed medication for migraines and tachycardia.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
