I was diagnosed with cervical spondylosis a few years ago. I was referred by GP to a neurologist and an orthopaedic surgeon. Following that I went to a manipulative physiotherapist for treatment following referral. The condition remains ongoing and self management is the key I usually have neck pain but worst of all "flare ups" which can be severe and frightening. This is worst when out and I can feel that I am about to blackout and get very dizzy - I have been assured that this is just a feeling - it is made worse by bright lights (eg in big supermarkets) - this can make me panic which makes things worse.
The feling I get is that my condition is understood but there is not a lot that can be done - most days I am okay, others suffering mild pain in my neck - others the severe onset with pain (cerviogenic headache) more severe in my head, the conditions described above then sometimes kick in. My neck can get very "crackly" when i move ti and so can my upper spine.
I thought i would share this - does anybody else suffer similar symptoms. Ian
