I am 39, used to be very active. Aerobics instructor, I own my own fitness ctr. I started having problems 8 years ago. Neck pain, lightheaded, dizzy, headaches in the back of my head. I mostly went to a chiro. 3 years ago my chiro said get an mri, it showed a disc hernation at c5-c6. Did PT but things just got worse. I had a couple bad falls and got hit in head with a heavy ladder. Two years ago I gotten woken up with a very strong, electric shock feeling in the back of my head. I only get it when I lay down flat. I now also get vertigo, the room gently turns when I lay down flat and turn my head left. I also have muscle movement on the right side of my face 24/7. My arms and hands fatique quickly and my hands have begun to atrophy. I have been looking for answers for two years. I have had ear tests and surgery. The only thing found is a disc herniation with a large bone spur at the c5-c6 level. It is moderetely compressing the cervical cord. My neuro thinks that I should have surgery to remove the bone spur and disc but does not seem quite convinced that is causing all these problems. I have had all the blood tests, head MRI and Auditory Brainstem test. All neg. Because of the constant neck spasms, I am told I am only using my eyes for balance. I have been looking on the net for years to find someone with similar symptoms who may have gotten a dx. If you are out there please respond. Thank you this message board has been very helpful.
