C1, C2 Degeneration & Dizziness

Hello,  I have been having headaches at the base of my skull and in the temple areas.... feeling like my head is squeezed in a vice.  I also have pretty constant dizziness... not room spinning dizziness but more of a wooziness and feeling like I am swaying.  My symptoms seem to get worse toward the end of the day, and sometimes when my neck is turned a certain way it really intensifies and even make my vision slightly hazy.  I do work at a computer all day.  I did have an MRI which showed C1 and C2 disc degeneration... just wondering if this type of problem could cause the daily symptoms that I am experiencing.  Can degeneration without a disc bulge put pressure on a nerve that would cause symptoms?

Thank you.

Hi there!

Degeneration may be associated with inflammation which could cause upper neck ache, though other possible causes would need to be considered as well. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician or a neurologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
