Common Questions and Answers about Neck pain causes dizziness

neck

Avatar_n_tn I've been told by doctors that I have an inner ear virus that will affect me my whole life randomly -- causing dizziness and crackles/swooshing. But, I also have chronic pain where head connects to neck and between neck and shoulders, nausia, dizziness, focusing issues... I don't have a history of any specific events leading to it either... so hmm.
Avatar_f_tn usually when that happen i just kind of hold on to whatever is near me so that I won' fall , At night and morning I find myself having a lot a neck pain and headaches . I don't know if its just the way i sleep . or what . but sometimes the pain is just too much It keeps me up at night . Any help ? suggestion ?
Avatar_m_tn But severe dizziness remains, any movement of my head triggers it and I have severe pain in the left side of my neck. Doc ordered an MRI to look for a tumor behind the sinuses. Any ideas?
Avatar_m_tn Any structural problem in the back of the brain can potentially cause dizziness and may have associated neck pain. These may include Chiari malformation, which is downward projection of the cerebellum, or a mass/tumor. I do need to re-emphasize, too, that there are migraine variants that can also cause dizziness and head pain. You should follow up with a physician for your symptoms. During this visit, you will need to have the bedside vestibular testing performed.
Avatar_n_tn Hello there, Improperly fitting bridges, misaligned teeth can cause a wide range of health problems including insomnia, dizziness, headaches, ear aches, facial pain, neck pain, pain when chewing etc. Ear aches and dizziness usually occur as the jaw joint is out of its natural alignment and the jaw has had to compensate for misaligned teeth. Other causes of these symptoms are vertigo, inner ear problems, Meniere’s disease, acoustic neuromas, brain tumors etc.Consult your dentist.
Avatar_m_tn I thought I was getting the Flu, Stomach Virus, a Cold, ECT. About two days later, I've been getting chest pain, dizziness, left arm pain, sometimes both arms, shoulder pain, shortness of breath, feeling weak, and not hardly been able to sleep lately. Like I said, I thought I was coming down with the Flu or something. I'd eat and then sometimes throw it back up. Then I thought I was dehydrated but my pee is clear and stuff. My eye site seems to be blurrier. My neck has also been hurting.
Avatar_n_tn There are two possible causes. One is that when TMJ is inflamed inner ear is affected causing dizziness. The second possible cause is inflammation of the sternocleidomastoid muscle (SCM) involved in TMJ and chewing. You had MRIs—was MRI of cervical spine done. Pinched nerve can be a cause too. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar_m_tn However, if you are having actual vertigo, then an ENT evaluation is defnitely warranted. The causes of vertigo (room-spinning dizziness) could be either the inner ear or the brain. Inner ear causes of vertigo most commonly include benign positional vertigo (BPPV), which is due to small particle in the inner ear that moves out of place, and can be repositioned with simple head maneuvers. The symptoms often include vertigo that occurs with turning of the head, often while turning over in bed.
Avatar_n_tn Also have noticed strange pain in my neck and back once in a while but not all the time. Anyone have this happen before or have any ideas what it might be?
Avatar_n_tn Along with that, I was constantly dizzy, had a heavy pressure in my head, ears popping, headaches, post nasal drip, vertigo, distorted vision, what I thought were heart palpitations in my throat, flushing ( heat ) of the body, chest eand neck pain, pain in my muscles and a slight tingling in my arms and legs at times. To make a long story short, and after a million different medical tests, I found out that I had severe acid reflux disease and I was dangerously low on Vitamin D.
Avatar_m_tn hey doctornee medical this week i`m going to have x-ray panorama on my teeth becuase of my impacted wisdom tooth and possibility of some tooth root abscess becuase last summer i have an absceess and the pain was aufwul i had dizziness too but i fixed it my doctor drained 2 or 3 times...and i was wondering if the infections of the abscess cause my symptoms ...muscle twitches...nausea fatigue dizziness or maybe i too much read on internet..:-) ??
Avatar_n_tn Rick, you dizziness is very nonspecific--it does not localize to one particular problem very well. You should definitely see an ENT and have a full examination and audiometry, with possible balance testing. Your complaint about going into a store and feeling more dizzy is actually very common, but it doesn't help localize the problem. Good luck!
Avatar_m_tn Entered the hospital with stroke symptoms sent there by family doctor some damage on left side but was told it was not a stroke, blood pressure to high to take clot busting drug, stayed in the hospital for nine days left with headache and dizziness and pain in my neck off and on. have been back to ER with stroke symptoms this time was given clot buster drug everything returned to normal headache was gone for two days but came back still dizzy it didn't leave they found no sign of stroke.
Avatar_f_tn I have had some neck pain for about a year now and I have also has some dizziness every few months when I bend my head down or sideways sometimes. I also have recently have had some werid dizziness while sleeeping. It almost feels like my body is moving and then when I open my eyes everyhting is fine....then sometimes when i bend my neck over and close my eyes it feels like my body is ,moving again.
Avatar_f_tn If the pain is more in the throat, it is likely to be a throat infection/ inflammation, which in turn may be viral or bacterial. If the pain is localized more towards the neck, other causes such as neuro-muscular issues etc may need to be looked into. Mild dizziness is often associated with infections and inflammations and is often found to be due to slightly decreased blood pressure and blood sugar. I would suggest taking plenty of water and OTC Tylenol for the pain.
Avatar_f_tn Patients with dizziness due to neck pathology (cervicogenic dizziness) often complain of dizziness that is worse with particular head movements and when the head is maintained in one specific posture for prolonged periods. Neck pain and a headache in the occipital region (the back of the head above the neck) may be associated with the dizziness. The dizziness may last minutes to hours after assuming certain head positions.
Avatar_f_tn For the past two weeks now, I have had horrible neck pain which causes me to have bad headaches and bad dizziness. The dizziness is hard to expalin, it feels like my head is to heavy for my body, I feel like I am floating on air. It's not so much that the room is spinning, but my eyes feel like somebody put a shade over them, I get this burning sensation all over my head and neck. Sometimes i even loose my train of thought. Is there a reasonable explanation for these episodes.
Avatar_n_tn Without the ability to review your medical history and examine you personally, I can not provide you with a diagnosis nor suggest treatment for your symptoms. However, I will try to provide you with some information. The causes of neck pain could generally be divided into muscular problems and spine problems. Problems in the neck muscles could be related to a sprained muscle, which often results from sudden movements, incorrect postures, etc.
Avatar_n_tn Others mean a light-headed, whoozy feeling. If by dizziness you mean vertigo (room-spinning), the causes could be either the inner ear or the brain. Inner ear causes of vertigo most commonly include benign positional vertigo (BPPV), which is due to small particle in the inner ear that moves out of place, and can be repositioned with simple head maneuvers. The symptoms often include vertigo that occurs with turning of the head, often while turning over in bed.
1556140_tn?1311850127 Both scans have been for my head/brain the neck thing is a new problem, i have had the headaches for over a year the neck pain and dizziness started a few weeks ago, not sure whats going on now???
Avatar_n_tn As time passed I tried to deal with it till I had a job where I had to look up while lifting my arms and that would instantly give me the worst neck pain, headaches and dizziness. It would last 2 or 3 days. If I continued to work like that despite the pain my vision would start to blur and I couldn't read things. For days it would feel like one of my nerves was being pulled on my head and necks right side. It would start in my temple then move to the back of the eye.

Patients with dizziness due to neck pathology (cervicogenic dizziness) often complain of dizziness that is worse with particular head movements and when the head is maintained in one specific posture for prolonged periods. Neck pain and a headache in the occipital region (the back of the head above the neck) may be associated with the dizziness.

16969864_tn?1452717024 To add to the symptoms, the past two weeks I have had neck and shoulder pain and now having problems with ear pain/pressure and swollen glands. I've been to the doctors several times and they have suggested I have Migraine (8 weeks worth?) or possibly Fibromyalgia! I've presented to A&E three times as the symptoms can be severe and I have felt out of control. I do have High Blood Pressure (treated with Ramipril) and an Underactive Thyroid Gland (treated with Levothyroxine).
Avatar_n_tn I have been having severe neck pain on the back left side with excruciating headaches. The front of my throat is tender to touch and even barely touching it feels like I'm being strangled. I also feel like there is a constant lump in my throat. The pain in my neck runs from the bottom of my scalp all the way to my shoulder blades. It feels tight, like I can't move my neck and yet also like it is throbbing.
