      I a m resting as it swells and my head feels heavy now but previously I jad just balance and dizziness problems. They are doing nerve tests. And taking it from there. Options include rest, injections or and or an operation where they remove the damage and put in new discs and or fuse them together so no contact is made with the spinal cord.,so it can't pinch the nerves anymore

    I have issues with my spine and muscles in my neck like the SCM. I am going to an osteopathic doctor to help with these issues. He is an asian doctor that mixes both western and eastern medicine.

    So what kind of dizziness do you get? I feel like I'm on a boat. And what did they do for you to fix this? My hands recently have been super tingly, and I have 5 disc in my neck that have buldged but my dr contributes to say they are not sognifgiant but I've had tingling in my hands for over a week now. What is your dr doing for you?

      I felt like I was on a boat. I thought it was mal de debarquement. It was like walking on a ferry that was on choppy water, then I started with tingling in my hands and feet and some numbness in my fingers and a really itchy finger.
