Cervicogenic dizziness

Posted , 3 users are following.

Has anyone here had cervicogenic dizziness? I have had a general light-headedness, fullness in ears and mild headache in the back right side of my head (headache has improved) for the past 5 weeks. I'm a pilot and have been out of work because of it. Any experiences or advice would help. I've had a MRI, blood work, Eye exam from eye doctor, and everything has come back normal so the ENT (who believes its Cervicogeni dizziness) has sent me to a Physical Therapist who has me doing neck traction each day. Has anyone had results or gotten better from specific treatments? I'm desperate to get back in the air and get my life back!

    Do you have lots of tension in your shoulders and neck? I have very similar symptoms

      Try massaging your neck muscles and top of shoulders before bed each night. It helps relieve pressure around the nerves that run down the top of the spinal cord. It sounds simple but ive had these issues for a long time and it makes the difference in migraine/dizziness the next day for me when nothing else

      does. Hope it helps

    Look up occipital neuralgia. My neurologist has been giving me nerve block shots for it. This might be your issue
