Reply To: Cervical spondylosis and vertigo


Thanks Tony. Its interesting that your surgeon dismissed your dizziness as neck related whereas my neurosurgeon was very ” oh all my neck patients have vertigo and balance trouble”. Mind you he was very dismissive as if it was a mere nothing! Its official name is cervicogenic vertigo and neuro did at least explain to me about balance receptors in your neck bones and muscles sending iffy signals to your inner ear.
I also get a split second sensation as if I have dropped or something which is a bit disconcerting but again i have had this on and off ever since having the spondylosis, in fact I think I could write a large book just of symptoms!
