Sorry that you are having this problem. I also have neck and back problems.  I take Celebrex twice a day 200mg.
I have ddd in my cervical spine. I sleep with a special Cervical pillow. If I lay a certain way sometimes i get dizzy feeling.
SO I think it is possible to have herniated disc cause dizziness.  I also have panic attacks. Mine started after taking steroids for my neck.  I talk myself out of them  I dont take medication for them.  
My husband had spining feeling, and it turned out to be blood pressure problem.  

I wish you luck getting this resolved.

Keep going to doctors and get it resolved.

Hey man I feel you pain.I've have been having the same symtoms (symptoms) I herniated two discs in my lower back about 2 years ago while working road construction.The day I hurt myself I had a racing heaqrtbeat along with dizziness my equalibrium was was whacko,I thought I was going to die it scared the hell out of me.I've done physical therapy for 1 year and a half.It was helping with my symptoms but the anxiety feeling has just came back strong about 3 months ago.I have been told by countless doctors that its all in my head,but I was a normal human b4 this happened and I know my body.I have go see another nuerologist next month.But I know in my heart these episodes are from my pinched nerves they tried to put me on pill but the pills made its worst I have panic attacks everyday its pure hell I tell ya good luck my friend...

I am both surprised and bewildered by these comments. I came on this site
to also see if my herniated disc (in my neck) could be the reason for my
vertigo- I too went through all of the tests with a neurologist and Ent-
and everything came out fine.  So what is the cause of the vertigo? no one
knows= how nice! although I am glad I am not alone in this I too would like
to get some real answers- I wish all the best

Hi S

I experience brief 'episodes' of sudden dizziness - feeling like I will black out (I start to stagger if I am standing at the time), get migraines with vision loss/flashing lights, have developed black 'floaters' in one eye and a recent MRI shows 'markedly attenuated signal from the origin of left vertebral artery.

I am awaiting a neurology appointment (soooooo long to wait!  Months!) because I suffer from Ehlers Danlos (and many associated and diverse symptoms) and that means a higher risk of possible aneurysm because my tissues are delicate.

In answer to your question, yes, I have had a swollen left gland in my neck on and off, but despite mentioning this to doctors, it has not really been considered an issue.  Sometimes when I swallow (e.g. a cup of tea first thing in the morning) it feels like there is a little lump there.

I am unsure whether this is related to my other symptoms above.

Hi,

I have a lot of symptoms.  I have headaches, lightheadedness, muscle pain all over.  I was diagnosed with many illnesses and one of them is cervical spine injury (herniated discs/bulging disc)  I've had headaches for more than twenty years on and off, balance problems, dizziness.   I was diagnosed with Hypothyroid, but the med is not helping me.  I'm getting worse.  I'm seeing a Endocrinologist and Cardiologist (low blood pressure/possible circulation problems)  Soon a Neurologist for Autonomic Nervous System Disorder, she found this disorder by doing a test for the nervous system (Ansar)
So you see I definitely share your pain.  
Hope you feel better.
