I have cervical spondylosis but have noticed that I get pain in my neck and bottom of skull at the sides of the spine bit when I stand up. I also get it randomly too but not as often.

I get dizzy standing up too, not severely though.

Is it just the cs or is it hypotension?

    As well as being dizzy standing up, I get it looking up or down. Just for a few moments until I move enough to correct it. Seems to be quite a common symptom. I do not have pain fortunately as I have spinal cord compression but not nerve compression.

    Good Luck!

    Hi Andrew. I too have CS and AS. My stage is very advanced and inoperable. I have spinal stenosis and trapped nerve and the light headedness is all part and parcel. I am on multiple pain meds, including morphine, which doesn't help with the light headedness.

    I am at the minute waiting to get into the pain clinic for injections.
