I don't know if this could be related, but I had a back fusion (L5/S1) just over a year ago, feel great regarding my lower back but now I have problems with balance and/or coordination. I feel lightheaded everyday, worse in the mornings. I have yet to go to the doctor to find out if I have an inner ear issue that may be causing this, but other signs are the back of my neck is really stiff and the lower part of my head has a numbing pain.....very manageable. The feeling is like being in a state of ephoria. Do you think what I'm feeling every day is an inner ear problem or a possible infection as a result of my surgery? I'm 39 years old and this really all started after the surgery, with one episode resulting in vertigo for about a month. Any ideas?
