Tight neck and shoulder muscles causing dizziness

I have been to my doctor concerning my dizziness for the last 6 days. It is due to extremely tight neck and shoulder muscles. I am 3 weeks post L4-5 fusion and apparently when walking, etc. I have not been moving my neck in trying to not bend, twist, etc. to keep the lower back straight. Anyone else ever had this problem?

Re: Tight neck and shoulder muscles causing dizziness

Amica, I suffer from the tight upper back, neck, shoulders spasms, pain etc. I have a t7-8 herniation and that causes agony, especially now since my L4-5 fusion because I am using legs and upper back more to save my low back while healing. I get dizzy sometimes, it's usually after I have had a headache for a few days from my upper back spazin and pain.

There are stretches you can do for the upper back and neck. I do them all the time, it's head sideways to shoulder both sides, and to chest. Look up online upper back exercises, there a few good websites, don't have them handy now. Also have a microwave heat pad I put around my neck when tight and hurting. Sometimes a few rounds of heat helps loosen up those muscles.

Hope you get some relief, hugs Blossom
