Gastric pain below shoulders, nausea, head spinning, stomach upset, c5 c6 protrusion


For past 1.5 years, I had shoulder and neck pain. I consulted orthopedic. I took MRI scan and there was nothing abnormal., undergone physiotherapy, yoga and exercise. Doctors adviced me that there is nothing and this is due to the sitting position. I am software engineer and I work continuously for 8 hours. Then after it was ok, but sometimes I used to get the pain, I did yoga/exercise and it recovered. But I used to get this pain often.
3 months before, I got the pain just below my neck in the back bone. I did MRI scan, which said protrusion at c5/c6 level. The flow of blood to the brain was also ok. doctors said just do the physiotherapy and that would be fine. After 2 weeks, when ever I get the pain, I started getting head spinning and nausea. This caused continuous gastric problem in my stomach and ear blockage and ear pain. I noticed that, whenever I work continuously in front of my computer, I started getting the pain below neck near the shoulders. As a result, nausea, gastric and weakness in my hands and joints. I was taking the Vertin 16 tablet but of no use. I was asked to consult ENT for this. ENT specialist prescribed me Gravol/Vertigo for this symptom. I observed that whenever I take Gravol, I could feel better. I took Gravol for 1.5 months and later doctor adviced me to not to take it. Just to take Vertin 16. But Vertin 16 was of no use. I started getting all the symptoms back. Sometimes, when I am travelling in a car, and there is a sudden bump, I get some pain at my back. due to this I get head spinning and nausea. Just for one day I took the gravol tablet and just after 30 minutes , I felt better. But the next day, I got a severe ear pain. Now I have put a small break to my job and at home taking rest. But I do not know how to get rid of these problems. Could any one advice me what would be the problem.
I already had cardio test 6 months before, thread mill test and everything was ok.

Re: Gastric pain below shoulders, nausea, head spinning, stomach upset, c5 c6 protrus

I see the meds. they put you on are for dizziness and nausea yet your not doing so well on them. Have you called you orthopedic Dr. recently to see if maybe you have a pinched nerve maybe in your neck? Seeing the meds. aren't working I would ask for another workup to look for a pinched nerve as that would definately cause some of your symptoms.

Good luck...JJ..
